I don't know if you all saw it, but there was a post in GD a few weeks ago called 'disturbing images from Jersey' with a bunch of guys that all looked gay with spiked hair and shit. Well, today I had to go to Jersey for a relatives 50th anniversary party at a fancy resturant off Interstate 78, I believe, a few miles from the PA boarder. There were two bus boys working there that had the exact same style as the ones from that picture. i saw them and just started laughing my ass off thinking about what others posted about them. Everyone was staring at me like WTF are you laughing about. all of my relatives are from NJ and Staten Island so they are used to people like this.

On another note, I noticed that on I78 there were state cops sitting about every mile. And then on the way home, about 7pm, there was someone pulled over about every half mile or so. Is this how all of NJ state highways are? Seems like alittle overkill of police.

Of all the Stete PDs, the uniforms of the NJ troopers always reminded me of 1984 like state security apparatus (similar to the SS) from a movie. They have those high boots and leather straps galore.

Not overkill. That area of Rt 78 is well known for numerous, and frequent, fatal crashes.

The primary job of the NJSP doing highway, parkway, and turnpike duty is SAFTY.

You're lucky you weren't there a couple weeks ago.. Apparently a wall in the old part of the restaurant collapsed and killed one of the workers!! Don't know how bad it was otherwise, but what a terrible way to go...

damn...I didn't know that. We were in some big room. I didn't get a good look around, but the rest of the place seemed to be open for buisness. The waitresess were beautiful though.

Safty has a price

Don't forget about the inflateable troopers they put in parked cars on the NJTP to deter speeding.

Not to high-jack the thread, but anyone who drives Route 78 should watch out over the next couple days. It seems like the NJSP continuing to give it their undivided attention Last night on a 20 mile stretch I saw three people pulled over and two speed traps all going one way, and different units as far as I could tell. This morning I saw one speed trap and two flying by with their flashers on. By far the most sightings during one day in the past year.hinking.gif
