State steps up parking enforcement at rest stopsPosted: Updated:
Drivers are being warned to park and ride at their own risk at all New Jersey rest stops.
The state is cracking down on the two-hour parking limit at rest stops. While there used to be small signs telling drivers about the two-hour rule, there are now flashing signs to remind drivers.
The state says drivers may be ticketed and/or towed for leaving their car at a rest stop for more than two hours.
Some drivers say the crackdown and ticketing is ridiculous. They say they often park and then take the bus to save money on gas. Others, who pay for parking in certain areas, say the crackdown is justified.
