The primary reason is because both Interstate 78 and the Garden State Parkway, two of the busiest motor vehicle arteries in the New Jersey, run through Hillside. When you combine all of these motorists with those operating along U.S. Route 22 and local roadways, it makes for a thousands of opportunities for traffic ticket issuance by the Hillside Police and state troopers in the township.

There are a slew of penalties and collateral consequences that result from a conviction for a moving traffic offense.

The period of revocation is even worse for possession of drugs in a motor vehicle at two years.
