Drivers could also delay pulling over because of “mental illness” or fearing for their safety if it’s at night on an empty road, said Stephen Carrellas, public affairs director of the National Motorists Association New Jersey Chapter.

”With lighter traffic and the same number of police on patrol it is easier to target a motorist compared with heavier traffic,” he added.
