LAWRENCEVILLE - A new proposal in Ocean County would make New Jersey's infamous jug handles a thing of the past.

State Sen. Jamez Holzapfel is introducing a bill that would ban the Department of Transportation from using jug handles in any future engineering projects.

Holzapfel says jug handles cause traffic and cost more to build. Under his law, drivers would use dedicated left turn lanes.

The ban wouldn't require existing jug handles to be removed.
