Public service announcements:

When traveling on the Route 52 causeway, New Jersey state law requires vehicles to keep right and pass left. The speed limit on the bridge is 45 mph.

Bicycle riders must obey all motor vehicle laws similar to the driver of a motor vehicle. They must stop at stop signs, traffic lights and ride with the flow of traffic. Riders are not pedestrians and do not have the same right of way as a pedestrian when crossing the street at an intersection.

It is a violation of a city ordinance to have dogs on the boardwalk at any time of the year.
