Plans set for Bay Fest

The City of Somers Point will hold the 26th annual Bay Fest Celebration on

The Somers Point Police Department warns guests against disorderly conduct and the underage consumption of alcohol.

Police said all juveniles gathering in large groups will be asked to move along, and anyone under 21 found to possess or be under the influence of alcohol will be charged. Police said underage drinkers would face an appearance in Municipal Court, the possible loss of driving privileges, and heavy fines.

Distracted driving enforcement planned

Somers Point Police officers will be cracking down on distracted drivers as part of a new national distracted driving enforcement campaign.

From April 1 through 21, the high visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists who engage in behaviors such as talking on handheld cell phones and sending text messages while driving. The slogan of the national campaign is "UDrive. UText. UPay."

The campaign is taking place in April, National Distracted Driving Month.
