NJ State Police Initiative

NJ State Police Initiative

STATE POLICE - NJ TICKETING

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

Starting today y, 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 o f these highways.
So, please be on guard and drive safely!

Starting August 15 , the price of a violation to show 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.

What was your source for this information?

It does not appear to be on the NJ 101.5 website, nor do various Google searches seem to corroborate it (aside from similar blog posts). It is also not on the NJ State Police news, where one might (or not) expect to find it. Similar posts such as "Seat Belt Enforcement Initiatives" have been on the State Police website news.

I have gotten this same email forwarded every year around this time, for the past 5 years. Not to say it isn't true, but I never noticed an increase in people being stopped for speeding on 287...myself included.
