The below article brings to mind a very good piece of advice. It is a good idea to always have a red flashing light and/or reflective apparel in your car in case you have to pull over for an emergency. The light or reflective belt/vest will insure you are seen by the cars speeding by.

NJDOT makes changes to roadside assistance program

TRENTON — New Jersey is making changes to a program that assists motorists who break down on the highway.

The renamed Safety Service Patrol will provide assistance on 225 miles of New Jersey’s busiest highways, including I-80, I-78, I-287, I-195 and I-295.

Transportation Commissioner James Simpson announced the changes on Tuesday.

He said SSP service will be provided 16 hours a day on weekdays and 10 hours per day on weekends.

It’s a realigned version of the Emergency Service Patrol that’s been operating since 1994. It provided service on 400 miles of highways. Simpson said coverage is being pulled back from relatively low-traffic areas.

The state’s toll roads — the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway — have their own services. 1 Comments
