Hamilton, N.J.—The AAA Clubs of New Jersey are dismayed by recent news reports that two on-duty New Jersey State Troopers allowed public highways to be used as speedways for certain events. These reports, if accurate, indicate a complete disregard for the law and for the safety of motorists who law enforcement officials are sworn to protect.
The AAA Clubs of New Jersey have long advocated for motorist safety on New Jersey roadways and often partner with the New Jersey State Police and local law enforcement agencies on safety initiatives. It is troubling when the lives of innocent people are put in jeopardy because a few law enforcement professionals view themselves as above the law.
We are encouraged that the Troopers in question have been suspended and that an investigation is ongoing.
