State launches ‘See something, say something’ campaign with highway signage
New Jersey officials are trying to make the state safer with a new “See something, say something” campaign.
Electronics signs posted above highways across the state are urging drivers to report “suspected terrorism.” It is a joint effort between the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and the state Department of Transportation.
The signs went up on Aug. 30 ahead of National See Something, Say Something Awareness Day on Sept. 25.
Some drivers were alarmed by the signs.
“This makes me think that there’s an underlying thing going on that’s not public yet,” says Laura Brunetti, of Manalapan.
Other drivers told News 12 that they thought the signs were related to the Sept. 11 terror attack anniversary.
The signs are scheduled to stay up until mid-February.
Anyone who does see anything suspicious is urged to call 1-866-4-SAFE-NJ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
