Wyckoff Police Department News

Wyckoff School District and Ramapo / Indian Hills District will be on a 90 minute delayed opening tomorrow, Wednesday, January 17th, due to forecasted inclement weather.

WYCKOFF POLICE DEPARTMENT PERFORMING VEHICLE STOPS TO ENSURE VEHICLES TRAVELING THROUGH WYCKOFF ARE SAFE AND MOTORISTS DO NOT POSE A RISK TO RESIDENTS AND PEDESTRIANS In the last two (2) months the Wyckoff Police Department, with the assistance of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) and with the use of a State Grant from the Division of Highway Safety, to participate in the 2017 “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over: Year End Holiday Crackdown” campaign, have conducted safety check points with the goal of ensuring motorists operating vehicles in Wyckoff are operating vehicles safely and with vehicles approved and inspected for safe driving by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. These enforcement actions contribute to the safety of our residents whom typically drive to and from; activities in our community, schools and stores with their families and who walk on crosswalks and sidewalks. AN ALARMING TREND Similar to the national trend, the number of traffic deaths in New Jersey rose again to 635, considerably higher than the record low of 542 set in 2013. These enforcement actions taken by the Wyckoff Police Department are intended to reverse this trend by changing motorist’s behavior in Wyckoff. Statistics reveal that most accidents occur within a five (5) mile radius of your home. The number of vehicles found to be operating unsafely in Wyckoff resulted in the following summonses issued:  Driving While Intoxicated 6  Possession of Narcotics in Motor Vehicle 3  Consumption/Possession of Alcohol in Motor Vehicle 3  Vehicles Operating with Expired Registrations 18  Failure to Perform Required Motor Vehicle Safety Repairs 36  Driving with a Suspended License 10  Failure to Stop for Pedestrian 3  Driving While Intoxicated in School Zone 3  Careless/Reckless Driving 32 Residents and motorists are encouraged to drive safely, plan for extra travel time, do not drive and text, and obey speed limits for the safety of our families traveling through Wyckoff and the safety of pedestrians utilizing our crosswalks. ******* Better Unread Than Dead. Don’t Text and Drive.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory until 0100 hours on January 5th. Snow will move into the area overnight and continue through tomorrow afternoon. Total snow accumulation is expected to be 3 - 6 inches. There is some forecast uncertainty in regards to the track of the storm. A westward shift of just 30 miles could result in 6 – 8 inches, a shift to the East of 30 miles could only leave us with 1 – 3 inches. North of Route 4 and West of the Parkway will see less snow, while South of Route 4 and East of the Parkway will see more snow. Temperatures will drop sharply tomorrow evening and remain in the single digits with wind-chill temperatures below zero through Sunday. Winds will be 15-20 MPH with gusts up to 35 MPH. This will cause blowing and drifting snow.

Happy New Year! All our best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018! 🎉🎉🎉
