O.K. Brian, can you pleeeeeeeease tell Uncle Tony that he can't make a left turn from Route 9 when he comes down to visit Aunt Grace in Manalapan on Saturday afternoon, that's why there's a line of cars behind him with all the folks honking their horns and showing him (by way of finger presentation) what they think about his driving. No, their not telling him he's number one. Thank you. Now, N.J traffic circles were designed to test ones mettle. Case in point, the traffic circle where route 33 and 34 meet. The circle has just been redone and the yield signs are very large and very clear and some people still can't get around the damn thing without nearly causing an accident. I just don't get it.

Your problem is you didn't go to catholic school because Sister Marymacbreakyourknuckles would have taught you proper grammer, one way or another

You don't know that you have it good until you get to Pa. and have the 4 WAY Stops.
Now, some of us have it figured out by now. But, get a New Yorker, or a New Jerseyan.............and .............lord save you.
Its who ever GOT THERE FIRST..........LOLOLOLOL That is the person who gets to go.
So you know the New Yorker is gonna' think he was first, and golly me.........New Jersey is going to give him the look and say........"No it was ME".
Then comes along Pa. pokie, dookieing.......waiting for who is finally gonna' give.
Its hysterical.......and gives me a giggle everytime.

Why are they wasting money mailing ads to my home in TN to my daughter? They kept asking her to go there, which would not have been an option even if we still lived in NJ. I would not send a student with a 3.8 average on 4.0 scale to a community college. She worked hard for those grades so deserved better.

My son graduated with a 3.8 average and he went to Brookdale, his choice he played baseball and now he is in Monmouth University. I saved quite a bit and he is doing wonderfully.

Pennsylvania should take heed and put in some of the jughandles instead of left turn lanes, protected left turns and yield to traffic left turns. Every corner is different--when the light turns green, with or without an arrow, do I go or do I wait. At least in NJ green meant it was your turn to move. Don't even get me started on the 4 way stops--yes, it's supposed to be who was there first; but sometimes it's who is in the bigger car, has a bigger attitude, thinks that stop signs mean cruise through while glancing, glaring at those who are stopped.

Why is that Jersey has the least number of accidents (fatal) for the number of cars, drivers and miles of roads traveled each day? Me thinks the jughandles help.

I'm heading into Brooklyn in a few and i will let him know
but he will be dissappointed , All this time he thought they were waving and saying hello (i told him to change the battery in his hearing aid)

get your stuff together NJ

2 blocks? Try 3 miles on route 17 just north of Route 4. You see a store you want to go to on the opposite side and you have to drive 3 miles to get to the u turn. There are too many roads in NJ have retail businesses on them that shouldn't. The businesses become inaccessible because the road is too narrow, busy and too fast, and cannot accommodate left turns.

Too many people, too many cars, narrow roads that cannot handle the volume. Welcome to NJ!

Jug handles are FUN when you're pulling a 53' trailer... While I got you guys; why the heck is it called Route 1 and 9? Why isn't it Route 109 or Route 1 or Route 9. First time I got directions to the Fed Ex facility at Newark I dang near drove into the Hudson River looking for "Route 109" after getting directions over the phone!
