Knowing what to do and who to call when your vehicle breaks down along the Garden State Parkway will save you time and help keep you safe. Dialing #GSP on your cell phone will connect you to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority's Operations Center in Woodbridge. A dispatcher there will send an authorized service vehicle to assist you.
Only authorized garages are allowed to provide towing and roadside assistance on the Parkway. The Turnpike Authority regulates the maximum rate our authorized providers may charge for those services.
Not all toll plazas are staffed at all hours of all days. If you do not have E-ZPass, make sure you have enough coins to pay your tolls.
Do not stop your vehicle in the active lanes of travel.
Do not attempt to travel on the shoulder of the roadway.
Remember: New Jersey law requires you to wear a seatbelt and refrain from talking on a handheld cell phone.
Remember to turn on your headlights whenever you use your windshield wipers. New Jersey law requires you to do so.
Don’t drive in heavy fog if you don’t have to. Consider postponing your trip until the fog clears. If you must drive, turn on your low beams. Never drive with your high beams or just your parking or fog lights.
