The operation, set for October 23, is designed to remove dangerous vehicles from the road and promote safe driving practices, the township said in a release today.
“The safety of our residents is our number one concern,” North Bergen Police Chief Robert Dowd said in a statement.
“By removing vehicles from the road that don’t comply with the guidelines set out by the New Jersey State Motor Vehicles Commission, we are ensuring the safety of those that call North Bergen home.”
Officials said that any vehicles found to be delinquent in their annual inspection will be ticketed, and then inspected, on the spot by the NJ MVC Mobile Inspection Unit.
In the event that a vehicle is deemed too dangerous to drive due to serious mechanical defects, the car will be impounded and the driver would be given an additional summons, officials also stated.
