2006 Motor Vehicle's Handbook Updates
New Regulations in the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicle's 2006 Handbook:
1. Turn signals will give away your next move. A confident New Jersey Driver
avoids using them.
2. Under no circumstance should you maintain a safe distance between you
and the car in front of you, because the space will be filled in by somebody
else, putting you in an even more dangerous situation.
3. The faster you drive through a red light, the less chance you have of
4. WARNING! Never come to a complete stop at a stop sign. No one expects
it and it will result in your being rear-ended.
5. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork,
especially with PA, NY or DE plates. With no insurance, the other operator
probably has nothing to lose.
6. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your
ABS kicks in, giving a vigorous, foot massage as the brake pedal violently
pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance to strengthen your
7. Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right. It's a good way
to prevent other drivers entering the highway.
8. Speed limits are arbitrary figures; given only as a suggestion and are
not enforceable in New Jersey during rush hour.
9. Just because you're in the left lane and have no room to speed up or
move over doesn't mean that a New York driver flashing his high beams behind
you doesn't think he can go faster in your spot.
10. Always brake and rubberneck when you see an accident or even someone
changing a tire. This is seen as a sign of respect for the victim.
11. Learn to swerve abruptly without signaling. New Jersey is the home
of high-speed slalom-driving, thanks to the Department of Transportation,
which puts potholes in key locations to test drivers' reflexes and keep
12. It is tradition in New Jersey to honk your horn at cars in front of
you that do not move three milliseconds after the light turns green.
13. To avoid injury in the event of a collision or rollover, it is important
to exit your vehicle thru the windshield right away. Wearing your seat
belt will only impede your hi-velocity escape from danger.
14. Remember that the goal of every New Jersey driver is to get ahead of
the pack by whatever means necessary.
15. In New Jersey, 'flipping the bird' is considered a polite salute. This
gesture should always be returned.
