Slow poke on the Garden State Parkway

Garden State Parkway traffic during a difficult Friday evening rush hour.

Below is a link to a video shot on the Garden State Parkway in March that shows just about every other car passing a driver who sets his cruise control to 60 mph.

This is a follow-up to my discussion on Sunday of how The Record ignores speeding drivers and the apparent lack of enforcement that allows them to drive as fast as they want, terrorize law-abiding motorists and blow through red lights.

In Hackensack, Police Director Mike Mordaga has begun to crack down on moving violations by drivers, and his officers issued a couple of hundred more summonses in March than in the same month of 2012.

Maybe, the Road Warrior will lift his head out of one of those enormous potholes he likes to write about, recognize what Mordaga is doing in Hackensack and find out whether other towns are following suit.

And what about the state police? Why not ask for data to show whether enforcement is way down, as many law-abiding drivers suspect?

Here's is the link to the video:
