What if I told you that the speed limits could be INCREASING in South Jersey?



How does 75 MPH sound? It's a possibility for major highways such as the Garden State Parkway and the NJ Turnpike.


Traffic engineers say that 75 MPH is the average speed on major highways, and increasing the speed limit to 65-75 would help traffic flow.


According to Assemblyman  Declan O’Scanlon , who is exploring the idea of increasing the speed limits: “This concept should scare no one on the road, we are not talking about changing people’s speeds. We are talking about having speed limits reflect the speeds people are already driving so that we have a better, more uniform flow of traffic.” (Townsquare News Network)
