STATE POLICE - NJ TICKETING


Here's the latest NJ State Police Initiative (Radio Station 101.5 FM confirmed this info).

Starting today (2/19/09), New Jersey will launch 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!

Starting August 15, the price of a violation not to have your Driver's license, registration or insurance card at the time you are stopped, increased from $44.00 to $173.00. (Keep these documents in your car). And the fine for not having all three documents is $519.00!


The fine for hand-held cell phone use while driving will be going up to $180.00.

Please forward this to people in N.J. and let them know of this latest Police Initiative.
