When Is Gov. Christie Going To Put A Stop To The New Jersey Nanny State…Or Will He?

My wife and I had to take a road trip from North Carolina to South Jersey this weekend, and what we found waiting for us there just astonished us.

In the town where my wife grew up, we found out for a population in her hometown of 50,000 people, there are 75 police officers.  That’s an insane amount of police for that population.  What’s even more insane, is that her father told us that the State Patrol are now patrolling the streets instead of the highways.  Does this make any sense to anyone else????

The other, and more important thing we found, was the “No Idling Law” that is implemented in the state.  It is now against the law to warm up your car in New Jersey, just like it is in Britain.  Are you people in Jersey going to lay down and put up with this type of legislative shit?

Here’s a link and text about this No Idling Law.  Please read it an realize that this type of tyranny is coming to every state of this Republic:


Clean Air: Idle Free New Jersey

Idle Free New JerseyDid you know that idling your vehicle for more than 3 minutes is against the law in New Jersey? View state and local no-idling regulations.

That’s because vehicle exhaust not only pollutes our air (it is the leading source of hazardous air pollution in New Jersey (source: NJDEP), but also puts people, especially children, at risk for asthma and other respiratory ailments, allergies, and possible long term problems. In addition, vehicles release potent
greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

NJEF, with the help of Chatham Township and Millburn Environmental Commission, has embarked on an “Idle Free New Jersey” campaign to educate New Jerseyans about the law, enforce no-idling hot spots, and ask schools and towns to adopt an “Idle Free New Jersey” pledge.

NJEF encourages all towns, schools, and individuals to help reduce idling. Our general rule of thumb: if you are going to be idling for more than 30 seconds, turn off your vehicle.

Here’s why…

Idling Facts

  • Idling for more than 10 seconds actually uses more fuel than restarting the engine.
  • Tests show no more than 30 seconds is needed to circulate engine oil.
  • The best way to warm up your vehicle is to drive it.
  • Idling
    can actually damage engines because it is operating not at peak (or
    high) operating temperatures. It causes incomplete combusions and more
    harmful pollutants to be released into the air. Fuel residues also form
    and contaminate engine oil and damage engine parts. In addition, water
    can condense in vehicle’s exhaust.
  • Modern vehicles don’t require any idling to warm them up.

Health Impacts

  • Vehicle related air pollution can cause asthma and other
    respiratory problems and allergies, especially in children who breathe
    at a faster rate than adults. Air toxics also contribute to heart
    disease and attacks, as well as higher cancer rates in high traffic
    areas (Source: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency).
  • Asthma is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children under the age of 15 (Source: American Lung Association).
  • Up to 25% of NJ’s school age children are asthmatic-the leading cause of
    school absenteeism and increased visits to the emergency room on hot
    summer days (Source: NJ Department of Environmental Protection).
  • Diesel vehicles emit numerous cancer causing chemicals, including
    benzene and formaldehyde; all vehicle gas emissions account for as many
    as half of all cancers attributed to outdoor air pollution (Source:
    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)

Success Stories

To date, NJEF has helped Red Bank, East Windsor, and numerous other
towns and schools implement idle free campaigns. Read more about NJEF’s
Idle Free New Jersey success stories


NJ Environmental Federation’s Idle Free New Jersey campaign is helping school kids turn education into action.

In Switlick Schools in Jackson, NJ Environmental Federation worked with students on designing a power point presentation on the importance of reducing vehicle and bus idling around the school. They presented it to the school and the town council, explaining the harm idling vehicles create and the benefits of reducing idling. The council agreed to do more to enforce the law and helped inititate an eductional no-idling campaign. As a result of their efforst, the students and teachers were given our “Grassroots Environmental Leadership Award” at our 23rd conference in April 2009.

St Peters studentsNJ Environmental Federation also gave the student council of Saint Peter School an award for their work in promoting an “Idle Free New Jersey” campaign in their schools and their community. The students created a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) with the goal of teaching others to help clean up air pollution by turning off their idling vehicle engines. As a result of the kids work, Ocean County declared April to be “no idling” awareness month.

Also, here’s a link to the 102 page report for the regulations of this nanny state law:

So, the question that you have to ask…Is Governor Christie willing to give up this type of tyrannical control created by Corzine and give the people of Jersey their freedom back?

My answer to the above question:  Hell no he’s not going to give up the power and control over the good people of Jersey, he’s going to lead these people to the slaughter just like the Democrats have been doing for years.

What This Blog Is About

From the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 to the deaths of Founding Fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson on July 4, 1826, we had 50 years to the day of pure, God given freedoms. On July 5, 1826, that all changed.

We need to fight back against tyranny so we can get back to those 50 years of our Republic's birth.
