The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) provides a Safety Service Patrol (SSP) to assist motorists in need on certain State highways. Assistance includes changing flat tires, pushing a disabled vehicle off to the shoulder, pulling a vehicle trapped in the mud or snow back onto the road, providing a small amount of gasoline and making minor repairs. This has been a very successful program that started in 1994. The SSP drivers not only assist regular motorists but this program also assists the New Jersey State Police (NJSP) and other secondary responders by promoting safety and diverting traffic during incidents, which creates a safe work zone for emergency responders. New Jersey is committed to providing safety in all of its transportation related areas.
