New Jersey Cracking Down on Speeders in July

Posted on July 6, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW JERSEY – New Jersey has launched a speeding ticket enforcement campaign during the month of July. The state estimates that $9 million will be generated in speeding tickets, according to a major New Jersey radio station. $1 million will go to pay state troopers overtime.

There will be 50 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling the nine main intersections and highways. They include the following routes:

I-295 north and south

1-95 (Jersey Turnpike) north and south

1-80 east and west

I-287 north and south

I-78 east and west

I-195 east and west

1-280 east and west

Rt. 130 north and south

Garden State Parkway north and south

In New Jersey, driving five miles per hour above the speed limit can now justify a moving violation. Every state trooper is supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 minutes. The state has issued 30 brand new unmarked Crown Victoria cruisers and they are bringing in all their part-time employees on full time. Anyone working in New Jersey, New York or Connecticut must take one of these routes and should be careful.
