Newark enjoys four distinct seasons – winter, spring, summer, and fall. So if you are visiting for the Christmas or New Year’s holiday, you might experience lots of snow. Therefore, an SUV might be best to get you through the snowy conditions. Other times of the year, a smart or compact car might be best when visiting Newark because of parking limitations. Simply put, a smaller car can more easily fit into a tight parking spot on the street.
The speed limit is 65 mph on both the Garden State Parkway and the NJ Turnpike. However, if you are traveling through residential neighborhoods, New Jersey law requires that you slow down to 25-35 mph, depending upon the zoning. Around the downtown area the speed limit is 30 mph. Watch for signs to avoid getting a speeding ticket.
