A new five-page policy emphasizes public safety when troopers escort vehicles down highways.

The policy, obtained by The Star-Ledger , requires three supervisors to consider several factors before approving escorts. Once approved, troopers must obey speed limits and traffic laws and avoid passing lanes.

The policy comes after troopers led luxury cars down the Garden State Parkway at speeds which exceeded 100 mph.

Two troopers involved in that escort were charged after state prosecutors said they sought to conceal their involvement in the escort by using tape to alter their license plates.
