NJ is not NY. NY has much stricter regulations due to the bridge height.

Next time tell them to argue with the NJ Parkway rules if they're so sure.

Yep in NY they don't allow commercials on a Parkway, quite practically they do have very low arched overpasses that give them a very costly SHAVE. As in destructive.

On NJ 's garden State there are restrictions North of Exit 105, no tractor trailers, certain weights, etc, but otherwise no restrictions on commercial vehicles.

I think years ago some double decker bus hit an overpass in NJ maybe around Bloomfield? so I would check about things like height and specifics otherwise.

Sports cars only. GSP is quite dangerous I wouldnt want any unskilled driver. The center divider is open with grass and support beams. If you lose control, you most likely die slamming into trees of columns.

NY State Parkways are like that, but the Garden State Parkway is not.

"Doc, can I ride a horse on the parkway?"
"Sure, you can ride a horse on the parkway."
"That's great, because I couldn't ride a horse anywhere else!"

Those who consider "the parkway" to be the Merritt get confused by parkways in other states.
