Memorial Day Traffic Tips at the Jersey Shore

Memorial Day Traffic Tips at the Jersey Shore
Traffic picks up this weekend all over the Jersey Shore.  Just a reminder...last year the state passed a law that all vehicles must yield to pedestrians in marked crossings.  If you're driving down the road and see a sign like the one to the right SLOW DOWN!

That signals a marked crosswalk ahead, and if there is a pedestrian around, come to a complete STOP!  There's a costly ticket coming your way if you don't

At this crosswalk today, I slowed and stopped for a pedestrian, while another driver came up from behind and tried passing on the right.  We almost had pedestrian stew!

Welcome to the Jersey Shore, drive with care and remember, leave only footprints!

Pedestrian Stew....Not Good!  Great reminder for all to slow down (not just on the Jersey Shore), pay attention and be on the lookout for pedestrians....We see a lot of them here too and this weekend will be hopping for sure!  Have a wonderful week!

I guess you have to threaten a ticket in New Jersey...we stop as a courtesy at cross walks and often wave to  the pedestrians because we're friendly.

Laura, great advice.  Many peiple walking are not familiar with the area adn you never know when they may wander into the street.
