Heard on the radio yesterday that extra trooper patrols are going to be bombarding the Garden State Parkway due to a recent speed limit reduction. They mentioned the exits but I only heard "between exit 80". They mentioned radar, laser and even helicopter. They will be on overpasses and the median lying in ambush. Might be nice to try out your gear.
yea my dad told me about this yesterday. i had no idea as i dont travel the GSP at all really. but should def be a good time to test out people's equipment.
like there arent enough already
lol, helicopter? is this really neccessary. Did anyone drive on 195 on friday last day of the month? cops alllllll over it was crazy I got an X signal with 1 bar of strength..then I got another like 5 secs later and I realized it was a I/O cop hiding somewhat in front of me and it was..I/O pisses me off more th an anything
I only saw one around mile marker 98, running X-band. Then I saw one up around mile marker 110, again running X-band.
The drop to 55 between exits 80 and 100 is stupid. How is that going to change anything? The only reason there were "excessive" accidents is because of stupid people, not a 65mph speed limit. Maybe it'll decrease the likelihood of someone dying since they "should" be going 10mph slower... but the people who drive recklessly are not going to slow down regardless, so what improvement will this make?
Just step up the patrol in this area if there's a concern... not lower the PSL by 10mph. It's a freakin 4-5 lane wide (in each direction) divided highway!!! If it can't be traveled at 65mph safely, then there is definitely something wrong with the drivers in this area.
