Hazlet is all lit up and so many houses are worth a second glance. Please follow these these safety tips!

HOLIDAY LIGHTS SAFETY

This is the season to drive the neighborhoods of Hazlet with your children admiring all of the Holiday Lights that our residents put up. We would like to offer a few tips to make sure everyone stays safe while doing this.

1. Dress yourself and your children in light colored clothes for better visibility from motorists and carry a flashlight if possible.
2. When parking your car please make sure you’re not blocking anybody’s driveway or any cross walks.
3. If there are sidewalks to walk on please use them and stay out of the streets.
4. Don’t let children walk unattended and hold their hands if appropriate.
5. Please respect our residents properties and refrain from walking on their grass or littering.
6. In the case of Bauer Avenue please do not attempt to turn on to Bauer Ave or park on that street. It is a dead end, a lot of pedestrian traffic and very difficult to turn around.
7. Drive slowly and be alert of pedestrians walking at all times.

Residential light shows are on display at the discretion of the homeowner and are no township sanctioned events, The Police department does its best to work with residents to ensure pedestrian safety at these sites- but we need drivers and pedestrians to follow the law and use common sense to keep everyone safe.

We are so lucky to have volunteers like these in Hazlet!  😊They make everything more fun. ⭐️ Thank you! ✨✨✨
