Sneaky Winter Hazards☃️

☔️Rain may seem like less of a winter driving hazard than snow, but when temperatures are near freezing, that’s not the case. Ice can form quickly and make roads slick.

🚗In these conditions, slow down, don’t use cruise control, and keep plenty of distance between you and other vehicles. Don’t let this winter hazard sneak up on you! Learn more at https://www.weather.gov/safety/winter

PEOPLE IN Bergen County NJ AREA. WATCH FOR THIS CAR
RED HYUNDAI WITH NJ PLATES R47 LKF
From what we heard, this driver has been doing. this. for a while. We do not know his intention, but from this video caught on my dash cam today, he looks like he was trying to provoke me. Do not get tempted, do not fall into his trap, we reported him to the authority. If you see this car doing this to you, make sure you report him to the right authority.

Can we please do away with Daylight savings? Please ?
NEW JERSEY, WHAT A JOKE, THE WAY PEOPLE DRIVE, EVERYONE SHOULD BE PROUD OF THEMSELVES
Thank you for the honor. I will always be committed to safety on all roadways and especially in New Jersey my home state.
What's going on with the construction on route 42 by exit 10b? Why has the repair to the bridge stopped? No progress has been made in quite a while.
