Indecency At NJ Rest Stops?

Posted: Updated:

A scenic overlook overlooking the Delaware River is being used more as a location for men to meet up to engage in sexual acts than to catch a glimpse of nature.

The overlook is on interstate 295 northbound between exits 57 and 60.  A retired state trooper alerted Chasing New Jersey about the problem and says that indecency at the rest area is a problem.

James Smith says,"There's a 100 cars in the parking lot and no one looking at the river."

On a recent day there was a parade of men emerging from the woods.  A check of the woods by the Chasing New Jersey team showed dirty tissues and latex gloves strewn about.

The New Jersey State Police says men performing sex acts is a problem at rest stops statewide and they have patrols that try to keep rest areas "family friendly."

The state police wouldn't comment specifically on the overlook in question but did issue a statement.  SFC Brian Polite with the state police says:  "We're vigilant in these patrols because we want to make sure these rest areas are enjoyed by everyone who travels the highways across the state."

Chasing New Jersey did report that between 2011 and 2012, arrests for lewd acts actually decreased in New Jersey.
