New Jersey Senate Bill 608 – Speed Limit Sanity Act
Speed Limit Sanity ActFull Bill Text
Senate Bill 608, designated as the Speed Limit Sanity Act, requires that speeds limit on certain limited access highways be determined through a traffic engineering survey based on the 85th percentile speed of free-flowing traffic. This bill is currently under consideration in the Senate Transportation Committee.
The NMA supports SB 608 because the use of the 85th percentile leads to safer highways by smoothing traffic flow and reducing accidents. Learn more about the proper way to set speed limits here.
