Motorists who violate traffic laws in the parking lots and driveways of 20 privately-owned properties in Brick Township would be subject to receive a summons from police under an ordinance adopted Tuesday night.
New Jersey state law enables a private property owner – usually a business or homeowners’ association – to request the township allow its officers to enforce laws under Title 39, the state’s motor vehicle code, on their land. Periodically, Brick Township, like most towns, add new properties to its jurisdiction upon such requests.
The township council on Tuesday night unanimously voted in favor of adding 20 new properties to the list where laws can be enforced, including:
- Auto Repair, 55 Brick Boulevard
- Briar Mills Village (Condominiums), Briar Mills Drive
- Cedar Gardens Apartments, 1030 Cedar Bridge Avenue
- Crystal Point Yacht Club, 4000 River Road

- Professional Office Complex, 1696 Route 88
- Royal Farms, 900 Route 70
- Scallywags, 270 Mantoloking Road

The ordinance allows police to enforce all aspects of the traffic code in the parking lots, drive aisles and entrances and exists of the facilities, from issues involving crashes, to motorists making illegal turns, to cars blocking fire lanes, for example.
It will be up for a public hearing and second vote at the July 25 council meeting.
