If you've been here more than a second, you surely know that road construction is never-ending in New Jersey. The constant jackhammering of our highways and byways takes a toll on both our emotional stability and the health of our cars -- so we've come up with a list of must-haves to survive New Jersey's never-ending road construction:
BUMPER GUARD (Amazon)
Because most of your fellow NJ drivers don’t know how to slow down in time to not rear-end you. Make sure when you purchase one of these that you're buying the correct size, of course.
SCRATCH REMOVER (Amazon)
Because let’s be real some of those construction trucks throw rocks at us on purpose. Hopefully, purchasing this will keep the scratches away (especially if you've leased your car).
FLASHING RED LIGHT (Amazon)
If you buy this, it will totally help you bypass all of the traffic... Probably not though because the lanes are so tight a single car can barely fit through, to begin with. Of course, this isn't totally legal, but we can have a little fun, right?
SAFETY EARMUFFS (Amazon)
If you buy these, you may actually be able to hear yourself think over the obnoxious construction sounds.
ANTI-GLARE SAFETY GLASSES (Amazon)
Buying these glasses may help to prevent you from crashing because you are blinded by the spotlights. After all, we know that an accident will only cause more roadwork.
ROAD WORK POPSOCKET (Amazon)
Having the chance to use this popsocket, may help to bring you a little laugh throughout this painful, never-ending process.
ROAD-WORK: A CHILDREN'S BOOK (Amazon)
Buy this book to teach your kids what all of the road workers are supposed to be doing instead of just standing around.
... In all seriousness, we do appreciate these individuals’ hard work on our roads, we just wish "the man" would speed up the process just a tad.
