Mendel Rosenfeld, of Lakewood, started a petition on Change.org seeking to raise the speed limit on the Garden State Parkway to 75 mph.
In the petition entitled, “NJ is way behind” Rosenfeld says, “By changing the speed limit on the Garden State Parkway and other NJ highways people will agree to travel further for a job which will lower unemployment rates.”
More than 800 people have signed the petition as of about noon on Wednesday. The last speed increase on the Parkway – from 55 to 65 mph – was about 20 years ago, though some portions remain 55 mph. Read more at NJ.com.
