The University Police Department has reported an increase in pedestrian accidents, especially on Upper Mountain Road between Normal Avenue and Mt. Hebron.

Slow Down and Watch Out for Fellow Red Hawks and Neighbors!

Slow down, get off your phone and keep your eyes on the road.

Drivers must stop for pedestrians at marked crosswalks until the person has fully crossed. Awareness will save you from an accident or striking a pedestrian.

Pedestrians need to be just as aware of conditions as drivers – cross at crosswalks, do not use a cell phone while crossing and know that crossing in other areas increases risks.

Do the Speed Limit or Get a Ticket!

The speed limit on all University and adjacent roads is 25 miles per hour (m.p.h.) with the exception of College Avenue which is 15 m.p.h.

The speed limit in parking lots and parking decks is 5 m.p.h. Speed is strictly enforced by radar and you may receive traffic summonses for speeding, unregistered vehicles, uninsured vehicles and equipment violations as well as any other violations of the State of NJ Title 39. These are uniform traffic summonses separate from Parking Services and will be determined by a municipal court as to fines or suspensions.
