    Default Roads closed for Commercial Vehicles in New Jersey

    New Jersey State Police Issues Commercial Travel Ban
    New Jersey State Police ordered the ban effective at 8 p.m. for the entire length of I-78, I-80, I-280 and I-287. It applies to all tractor trailers, empty straight CDL-weighted trucks, passenger vehicles pulling trailers, recreational vehicles and motorcycles.
    The commercial vehicle ban came two weeks after dozens of motorists were trapped in their cars for hours in a traffic nightmare on highways during a March 7 nor'easter. Multiple tractor-trailers became disabled during that storm, bringing some highways to a halt and leaving motorists stranded for more than eight hours before they were freed by snowmobile-riding search and rescue crews.

    Let's hope there's not a repeat of the Road Conditions as was the previous storm...it was a nightmare commute for thousands of people in more ways then one...Hundreds of cars were abandoned on 280 and 78 and had to be towed...When those people went to claim there cars from the state's towing service...Well,they paid a hefty price...$585 dollars...one woman said she paid $700 dollars...you talk about taking advantage of the situation...State says it's the going rate...TRANSLATION...Everyone has to get 'THEIR CUT'.

    Drivers who were trapped on I-280 surprised to find out cost of
