Attention drivers of NJ: Ticket-happy officers lurking on major highways!

Thirty day speeding ticket frenzy in effect today!

Starting today, New Jersey will launch a 30 day speeding ticket frenzy.The state estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. 1 million will go to pay state troopers' overtime. There will 50 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling the 9 main intersections and highways. They are the following:


  • 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
  • Rt. 130 North and South
  • Garden State Parkway North and South

Five 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 take one of these highways. It's up to you how fast you are going when they clock you. 101.5 FM confirmed all of this. So be safe and don't forget speeding tickets are on you. Driving Ticket fine increase in NJ: Starting on August 15th, the price of a ticket for violation of NJ Law 39:3-29 (failure to show your driver's license, registration, or insurance card at the time you are stopped) is going from $44.00 to $173.00.

Please make sure your vehicles have the proper documents in them. If you jump in the car to run to the store and forget your wallet with your license in it and you are stopped.... Oh well... you just spent $173. And the fine for not having all three documents is $519!!!


Forward to people in NJ, and let them know of this change. And becareful, the fine for hand held cell phone use while driving will begoing up to $180.00. Be wise and careful!!!!
