State police urge New Jerseyans to remain off the roadways while crews clear snow

New Jersey State Police are urging all state residents to remain off the road as much as they can for the rest of Tuesday so that maintenance crews can continue snow removal.
Sgt. Lawrence Peele told News 12 New Jersey that a majority of New Jerseyans have heeded the warnings and have remained inside following the aftermath of the nor’easter.
Officials say that state troopers responded to over 860 motor vehicle crashes on state police-patrolled roadways since the storm began Sunday evening, along with over 1,000 requests for motorist aid. But no serious injuries were reported.
The nor’easter dropped more than 30 inches of snow in parts of New Jersey and lasted into Tuesday evening. Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for New Jersey ahead of the storm, which remained in effect as of Tuesday evening.
