Biggest summer annoyances on the Garden State Parkway – Low Calorie Diets Tips

We want to see where you are as we head into the summer tourist season here on the Jersey Shore. How does it make you feel at home driving one of our main roads between now and labor day?

It’s almost impossible to avoid driving the Garden State Parkway, and with millions of people driving to our beaches, traffic will escalate. Let’s see what “pet troubles” you have when it comes to riding the GSP. At home we asked you to switch off.

Chris: Luckily I don’t even have to use the Autobahn. The speeds these fools are traveling at now are insane. Overtake at 80 km/h in the right lane. No thank you.

Patricia: People’s speed… and they don’t pay attention to… drifting into other lanes… it’s just ridiculous all year round! It used to be the safest place to travel. Now I will avoid it.

bob: New Yorkers stay out of the left lane!!!!!

pamela: Lane changes & accidents. Stay in your lane and go with the flow. Pay attention!

samantha: NEW YORK PLATES ON THE LEFT LANE!!!!!! You are driving 10-20 mph LESS than the speed limit. MOVE OVER YOU BELONG IN THE RIGHT LANE

Mega: People speeding by in small cars slow down

Wanda: You put turn signals on a vehicle for a reason. Maybe they need to check turn signal fluid there…. lol

Dena: Motorbikes drive between lanes

Greg: The tolls are too low, I think the tolls should be at least $3.50

John: My biggest complaint is rooted in nostalgic memories of my childhood and early years as a driver. Back then, you could drive the entire length of the GSP, knowing full well that as long as you had a cupful of quarters in the vehicle, you could pass any tollbooth. These days, it’s better to have a wallet or wallet full of dollar bills to shell out the requisite $1.50 or $2.00 at some tollbooths. And don’t get me started on the subject of having to carry a credit card to pay for your parking meter. Oops! A quarter simply no longer buy what they used to.

Kathy: Being further north I would say the narrowness of the lanes in the area between Union and the Driscoll Bridge. I get very restless driving through this section of road. And the building lane shifts make it even worse.

amy: Young GUYS who ride those “bikes” that fly between lanes and pop wheelies

teddy: Impatient people in the left lane. You need to relax with the hi-beams and tailgating.

Evelyn: How crowded the GSP gets on a Friday afternoon. Even Brick Blvd gets busy if you leave just after 4.

laura: All summer birds and bennys

judy: Not just in summer. The price of the toll all year round = outrageous

Leonard: People who don’t use turn signals

amanda: The question should be, is it fun to ride the parkway in the summer?

Bruce: Idiots are not right

bud: Tolls.. I’m being billed $150.00 per month now…. EZ Pass…. Grrrrrr

cyndy: The Idjits

Sandy: When they skip an Ocean County exit

bob: That parkway traffic ends on rt9

Aaron: It’s New Jersey lol

Kathy: The traffic number one. The fact that it sits in certain areas and doesn’t move. Second would be the idiots weaving in and out of traffic cutting people off just to get maybe a car or two in front of you…

Noemi: The person driving 45 in the left lane and holding everyone up. Move over. don’t be annoying

Stefan: $5 a gallon of gas!

Frank: the weirdos who think they belong in the Indy 500

LOOK: See how much gas it cost in the year you started driving

To learn more about how the price of gasoline has changed over the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the past 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the consumer price index (CPI) for regular unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each Year.

Read on to examine gas costs over time and rediscover how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
