Warning for New Jersey: State police set off huge Revenue collecting initiative

Starting today (June 19), New Jersey will launch a 30 day speeding ticket frenzy.
The state estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets.
One million dollars will go to pay state troopers over-time.

There will be 50 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling the 9 main intersections and highways as follows:
> I-295 North and South,
> I-95 Jersey Turnpike North and South
> I-80 East and West
> I-287 North and South
> I-78 East and West
> I-195 East and West
> I-280 East and West
> Route 130 - North and South
> Garden State Parkway - North and South

5 MPH above the limit can justify a ticket and every state trooper is supposed to pull a car over and
write a ticket every 10 to 20 minutes.

They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Crown Victoria cruisers and are bringing in all of their part-timers on full time.
If you work in NJ, NY DE or CT, you will probably be on one of these highways. So, please be on guard and drive safely!

Starting August 15 the price of a violation to show your driver's license, registration or insurance card
at the time you are stopped will increase from $44.00 to $173.00. (Keep these documents in your car)
The fine for not having all three documents is $519.00!

The fine for hand-held cell phone use while driving will be going up to $180.00.

I'm from NJ

This is true. When have the jersey shore which generates a lot of traffic this time of the year, surely the state troopers are taking advantage of this.

Angers me. They are openly saying that they are taking money from the people.

I believe it is accurate. I would prefer not to say where I got it for confidentiality reasons.

I have gotten this same

I have gotten this same email forwarded every year around this time, for the past 5 years. Not to say it isn't true, but I never noticed an increase in people being stopped for speeding on 295...myself included.
