The Township proposes an ordinance that will regulate and provide for penalties for creating unsafe and dangerous conditions on any roadways located within the township
While there are public roadways located within the Township, certain roadways within the Township are considered “private” roadways although said roadways are not fenced off to the motoring public. These roadways are utilized by the public at large, and said roadways (in the event of an emergency or other immediate need) are accessed by first responders (such as fire, ambulance and police) and said roadways are utilized by the school district to establish bus pick-ups and drop-off locations
Although the Township may not be responsible to maintain, repair or replace said private roadways, the Township still has a responsibility and duty to protect its citizens from unsafe and dangerous conditions on all of the roadways within the Township, whether public or private.
The Township believes that it is in the best interests of the Township and its citizens to adopt this ordinance to protect the safety and welfare of its citizens (and the motoring public at large) from unsafe and dangerous conditions on all of the roadways within the Township, whether public or private.
