Knowing what to do and who to call when your vehicle breaks down along the New Jersey Turnpike will save you time and help keep you safe. Dialing #95 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.
A Turnpike lane set aside for certain hours of the day for use only by high-occupancy and fuel-efficient vehicles.
They are the far left lanes of the outer roadways between Interchanges 11 and 14. They are marked by a diamond on the pavement.
Northbound on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., southbound on weekdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The HOV lanes are open to buses, motorcycles and vehicles with hybrid engines regardless of number of passengers, and passenger cars carrying three or more people.
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.
Be aware that when the weather is bad, we sometimes reduce speed limits on the Turnpike. Pay attention to the signs along the roadway.
Don’t drive in heavy fog if you don’t have to. Consider postponing your trip until the fog clears.
If you must drive in fog, turn on your low beams. Never drive with your high beams or just your parking or fog lights.
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.
Do not stop your vehicle in the active lanes of travel.
