WALL TOWNSHIP - Some New Jersey drivers were getting a jump-start on their long holiday weekend this afternoon.

Some roads in the Garden State were packed, while others seemed empty. AAA says that 1.2 million motorists will be on the road the Fourth of July weekend. It also says more than a million drivers will be driving 50 miles or more this weekend.

Earlier, News 12 New Jersey caught up with "Sopranos" cast member Vincent Pastore, who dished out some driving advice, including don't drink and drive, keep your seat belt on, and don't go back to New York once you leave.
