  New Jersey Remembers  
   
 
Overview
Nearly 13,000 lives are lost each year nationwide to impaired drivers. To help bring further awareness to the tragedies associated with drunk and drugged driving, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, in partnership with law enforcement agencies, substance abuse prevention organizations and traffic safety advocates, hosts the annual New Jersey Remembers ceremony to commemorate the lives lost as a result of impaired drivers.
During an emotional remembrance, families who have lost loved ones to an impaired driver participate in a processional where they are escorted by local police officers. The families display photos of their loved ones and light candles to commemorate their lives.
As a reminder of the continuing effort to eliminate drunk and drugged driving, traffic officers from around the state are recognized for their role in enforcing New Jersey’s Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) laws (Top Gun).
