N.J. Taxpayers Shouldn't Have to Pay for Someone Else's Stupidity

N.J. Taxpayers Shouldn't Have to Pay for Someone Else's Stupidity
BY KATE COCOZZA
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and Dave Wolfe of the 10th Legislative District will introduce legislation allowing courts to hold certain offenders responsible for the cost of rescue and recovery operations.

The measure was drafted after a pickup truck fell through the ice after being driven onto the frozen Toms River, reportedly to do "donuts," prompting an emergency search and recovery effort by local emergency responders and the State Police and Coast Guard.

“The massive emergency rescue mission in Toms River resulted from intentional activity that likely violated the law," said Holzapfel. "Taxpayers should not have to bear the burden of paying for someone else's stupidity."

In the Toms River incident, the driver was able to escape to safety with the help of nearby friends, but his dog was later found deceased within the submerged truck.
