New Jersey families are taking it one step further than usual in the hope of making it to a car-free winter in 2019.
The state has decided to ban all new vehicles from January 1st, which means that if you want to get your child in the car, it will be hard to get the state’s drivers license.
The state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) says it will ask all drivers to take a test to prove they can drive safely in the vehicle.
In addition, all cars registered in the state will be banned by January 1.
In an effort to make sure the state can maintain an orderly shutdown, all non-emergency vehicles will be limited to 60 miles per hour.
All new vehicle registrations will also be limited, to 60,000 vehicles.
There are some restrictions in place for people who need a temporary vehicle to transport their loved ones, like pregnant women, elderly people, and anyone else who needs to drive safely.
The DMV will also provide a temporary driver license to anyone who needs a temporary transportation, as long as they are registered in New Jersey.
All registrations will be suspended for 24 hours.
