Trucks already in New Jersey are encouraged to use truck stops or rest areas during the ban.  In order for road crews to effectively plow, drivers should not park on shoulders. 

“Residents and motorists should avoid driving unless you are an essential employee needed for emergency response, Callahan said in the release. “If you do not have to be on the roads during the storm, please stay home. If you must go out, drive slowly, fill your gas tank, charge your phone, pack blankets, water and non-perishable food items.”
