I recently became aware of the New Jersey State Polices new 30-day speeding ticket frenzy. I thought I would forward this message along incase local residents plan on traveling down to the beach this summer or happen to work in New Jersey.
Starting July 28, New Jersey will launch a 30-day speeding ticket frenzy. The state estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. One million dollars will go to pay state troopers over-time. There will be 50 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling the 9 main intersections and highways as follows:
- I-295 North and South,
- I-95 Jersey Turnpike North and South,
- I-80 East and West,
- I-287 North and South,
- I-78 East and West,
- I-195 East and West,
- I-280 East and West,
- Route 130 – North and South,
- Garden State Parkway – North and South
5 MPH above the limit can justify a ticket and every state trooper is supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 to 20 minutes. They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Crown Victoria cruisers and are bringing in all of their part-timers on full time. If you work in NJ, NY, DE or CT, you will probably be on one of these highways. So, please be on guard and drive safely! Please forward this to people in NJ or any one using the NJ Highways, and let them know of this latest Police Initiative.
