Which NJ roads are toughest to stay awake on while driving?
It seems like we are reading more and more about people falling asleep behind the wheel while driving. The latest being Maria Salazar’s award of $1.1 million after her car was struck by a sleeping truck driver on the Garden State Parkway, according to her lawyer.
As someone who has driven long hours on practically every road New Jersey has to offer, I can honestly say that it’s much harder to stay awake on a one-lane back road than it is on a major road like the Garden State Parkway or New Jersey Turnpike, especially if you have a car in front of you going about 5 miles slower that your comfortable speed. Many times , coming home from the Jersey shore, I’d find myself losing it on Rt. 539, especially the part between Rts. 70 and 528 where I seem to lose my cell phone reception as well.
What would you say are the toughest roads to stay awake on in New Jersey?
