[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Pennsauken 10-27-1986 by Ord. No. 86-47. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Township of Pennsauken hereby establishes this chapter to regulate the speed of any railroad train through the boundaries of the Township of Pennsauken.
Since it has been determined that the appropriate safeguards as indicated in N.J.S.A. 48:12-48 have not been established along any railroad line through the Township of Pennsauken, it shall therefore be unlawful for any railroad train or other railroad vehicle to travel on any railroad line which intersects or runs through any property within the Township of Pennsauken at a rate of speed in excess of 39 miles per hour. This prohibition shall extend to any railroad company, whether governmentally owned and operated or privately owned and operated, whose employee or agent shall drive the aforesaid railroad vehicle through the Township of Pennsauken at speeds in excess of 39 miles per hour.
Any person, company or any other entity which shall violate any of the provisions of this chapter shall be subject to one or more of the following: a fine not exceeding $1,250 or imprisonment in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days, or a period of community service not exceeding 90 days, at the discretion of the Municipal Court Judge of the Township of Pennsauken, or both, at the discretion of the court.
This is a penal chapter, and said chapter shall be enforced by the police officers of the Police Department of the Township of Pennsauken.
