Poll: New Jersey Considers Ban on Jughandles. Good Idea?

NJ Lawmakers are considering a ban to construct any further jughandles in New Jersey. The jughandles, which require motorists to turn right in order to turn left by looping around a half circle, was intended to help the traffic flow on many state highways.

But a NJ lawmaker is hoping to put a halt to the jughandle which he says are just confusing for unfamiliar motorists.

Republican State Senator James Holzapfel says he hopes his proposal, which cleared the Assembly yesterday, will make the roads easier to navigate.

The legislation, if passed, would not remove the current jughandles, but would ban future ones. TLS.

  1. Who asked commentor #1 to make a decision? The ones making the decision will debate the pros and cons. It like saying please post the pros and cons on whether the Feds should lower interest rates so I can make a decision! Lol

  2. Traffic studies prove it helps the flow of traffic by 900% – Google jughandle traffic studied. Silly is idea. I guess they are bored uou in trenton.

  3. Jughandles are to New Jersey what wine is to France. They’re the
    lifeblood of our glorious culture, along with right turns on red and full service gas stations. Leave ’em be.

  4. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Yes they are very bored in Trenton. what’s the other option allow left turns on state highways?? That’ll be a disaster!

  5. Jug handles aren’t a bad idea. But they must also be accompanied by conspicuous and clear signage. This is important for drivers that are unfamiliar with the roadway and especially for those out of state drivers that don’t have jug handles in their state. For them it is very weird to stay on the right in order to turn left. If it’s truly the case, a 900% improvement in traffic flow resulting from jug handles would be hard to argue against. I’m curious to see how the decision will go.
