Yes, because you never know when you might "hit the road." Back when I was just a mountain biker (let alone, a biker biker), I'm convinced a helmet saved my life when I had an "extremely unscheduled dismount" resulting in a very unsubtle contact between my noggin and a rock.
The Upper Saddle River Police family lost one of the best last week. Ms. Ines Peterson ("E") was our department Mom, Sister, Aunt and Friend all in one. E worked with the USRPD for over 30 years. She was the pleasant lady who would magically appear behind a blind-covered window when residents needed copies of police records or incident reports. E's unique personality was book worthy. She loved to talk about old television shows, music, and never forgot a birthday. E was truly one of a kind. Please take the time to read her obituary written by her husband John Peterson. ...

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month 5 Tips for Drivers - Take an extra moment to look for motorcycles. Because of its small size, a motorcycle can be easily hidden in a car's blind spots, so check — then check again — before changing lanes or making a turn.
- Predict a motorcycle is closer than it looks. A motorcycle may look farther away than it is because of its small size, and it may be difficult to judge a motorcycle’s speed. When checking traffic to turn at an intersection or into (or out of) a driveway, predict a motorcycle is closer than it appears.
- Keep a safe distance. Motorcyclists often slow by rolling off the throttle or downshifting, thus not activating the brake light, so allow more following distance, about 3 to 4 seconds.
- Understand lane shifting. Motorcyclists often adjust position within a lane to be seen more easily and to minimize effects of road debris, passing vehicles, and wind. Understand that motorcyclists adjust lane position for a purpose, not to show off or to allow you to share the lane with them.
- See the person. When a motorcycle is in motion, see more than the motorcycle, see the person under the helmet, who could be your friend, neighbor, or relative. ... See MoreSee Less

USR Residents You Need To Do Your Part Our community has been victimized by car thieves and car burglars for years. As of late these thefts are becoming more prolific and the criminals more brazen. We do not want to equate the thefts to a business, but like in a business, if there is no supply people will go elsewhere for the product. We can all do our part in bringing the supply down by locking our cars and by bringing the key fobs into our houses. The Upper Saddle River police department again will be participating in the 9 P.M. Routine reminders to remove valuables from your vehicles, lock your vehicle doors, lock the doors to your residences, turn on exterior lights and activate all alarms and security systems. We live in one of the safest communities. Let’s all work together to keep it that way.
