How to get around within New Jersey

The Garden State Parkway connects many major cities in New Jersey and the state is also served by interstates so driving your car around could prove to be convenient. However, there are certain traffic rules that are unique in New Jersey. Left turns are not allowed from many of the major divided highways in urban areas, resulting to motorists taking exit ramps for left turns and U-Turns after some intersections. In addition, exits are not always clearly marked and some toll bridges along the shore charge vehicles in one direction only, which happens when you're driving toward New York, Delaware, or Pennsylvania. Public transport in New Jersey consists of the PATH train system that runs from Manhattan to Hoboken and Newark, and NJ Transit that connects communities throughout the region, to Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as Pennsylvania station in New York City.
