Limousine Association Executive Director, Barry E. Lefkowitz Participates on NJ MVC Safety Advisory Council
With several prominent achievements in the Limousine industry, Barry E. Lefkowitz, Executive Director of the Limousine Association of New Jersey, was requested to be a member of the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission Safety Advisory Council
The Limousine Association of New Jersey is pleased to announce Barry E. Lefkowitz’ participation on the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission’s Safety Advisory Council. The Safety Advisory Council, which held a critical planning meeting in May 2007 regarding the NJ MVC’s future, requested the experience and expertise of Lefkowitz, Executive Director of the Limousine Association of New Jersey, and a recognized key participant in the NJ Limousine industry.
New Jersey is experiencing several key trends from an increase in densely populated areas, to teenage accidents, to special needs for an aging population. To work along with these trends, the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission’s (MVC) Safety Advisory Council will be taking active steps to try to improve safety in New Jersey by developing a plan for the next five years, which includes emphasis areas and coordinated strategies. The NJ Motor Vehicle Commission realizes that to capably address the hurdles to its future success, strong feedback and innovative ideas are needed.
Other participants on the advisory council included: the NJ Deputy Attorney General; President of the NJ State Safety Council; Director and Deputy Director of the Division of Highway Traffic Safety; NJ Dept. of Education – Office of Academic and Professional Standards; Department of Transportation, Chief Technical Assistance Unit Admin Office of the Courts; Assistant Director of Municipal Court Services; Manager of the Motor Vehicle Commission Driver Management Dept.; State Executive Director of MADD; School Bus Owners Association, NJ State Municipal Prosecutors Assn., State of NJ Congressman for the American Motorcyclist Assn.; NJ State Chiefs of Police; Executive Director of the NJ Motor Truck Association; Director of Public Affairs AAA; NJ State Police Field Operations; American Motorcyclist Association; State Coordinator for the AARP/NJ Driver Safety Program; Chief NJ Police Traffic Officer’s Association; CMCA, President of the NJ Municipal Court Administration Association
The MVC realizes that it needs to partner with key organizations to address safety concerns. At the Safety Advisory Council’s most recent meeting, topics that represented key safety areas for the NJ MVC were discussed. Law enforcement, the courts, regulating entities, educators, safety organizations and others organizations impacted the priority of topics.
Representatives discussed, and then voted on which topics were priority. The following are the topics according to priority.
1. Driver Control – MVC has almost lifetime involvement with drivers from supporting driver education, testing, licensing, monitoring, sanctions, improvement and license retirement. Point system and driver improvement are addressed.
2. Teen Drivers – Teens are involved in more accidents per mile driven than any other driver age category. Education, testing and driver improvement issues are addressed.
3. Older Drivers – With the population aging increasing the number of older drivers who can exhibit reduced skills and medical conditions impact safety. Education, medical reporting, and re-exams are addressed.
4. Motorcycle Safety – With motorcycles growing in popularity it is recognized that specialized training is proven to help prevent collisions. Education by novice and experienced riders are addressed.
5. Commercial Vehicle Driving – Many trucks and buses travel NJ roads leading to a greater risk of collisions. Commercial driving is regulated at the federal level. The availability of qualified drivers is a safety concern. School Bus Drivers, small buses and vans, and commercial vehicles are addressed.
“The human and economic costs associated with accidents on the road are too great. The NJ MVC Safety Advisory Council is charged with the courageous responsibilities to develop more effective strategies to reduce the number of lives lost, the human suffering, and the economic costs associated with motor vehicle collisions in New Jersey,” said Lefkowitz. “The Council has effective and well-attended sessions made up of people with various areas of expertise and knowledge including the directors of key traffic and motor vehicle-related departments within the state of New Jersey. I am honored to be selected to sit as a participant on this council.”
Mr. Lefkowitz has a strong government background, with three decades of governmental relations, regulatory, economic development, media, and educational experience at the federal, state and local levels. Lefkowitz has developed and successfully guided over 200 Bills through the State Legislative and Congressional processes, including “The Limousine Safety Act”, and the “Real Interstate Driver Equity Act”.
