Speed limits on major New Jersey highways, like the Garden State Parkway, NJ Turnpike and others could be increased, maybe even to 75 mph, if that's the limit traffic engineers determine is the safest.
As I was first hearing of the Garden State Parkway flooding issues northbound yesterday, I was literally passing exit 83, my last chance to get off the Parkway before the traffic. Seconds later, like many of you, I was stuck in the motionless traffic.
The idea of just hopping on the Parkway and driving to your destination without giving a thought to what time it is or what day it is are over for a while. This weekend we open our doors to the word. It's summer at the Jersey Shore.
