NEW JERSEY- Get ready to pay more to travel the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike. A 50% toll hike will take effect New Year’s Day. The average car toll on the Parkway will jump from 70 cents up to $1.05. Turnpike tolls could hit as high as $3.30. The increase was proposed during former Governor John Corzine’s administration.

WALL- A Tinton Falls man is being charged with DWI after ramming his car into a utility pole late Friday evening. 43-year-old Sung Choi was driving on Brighton Ave in Wall, when his car left the road and struck the pole, causing downed wires on adjacent Gully Rd. Police say Choi was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. No road closures were reported and power was restored to the area.

BRICK- A little more drama than usual at the Brick Recycling Center Friday.  Reports say a car, having fluids drained near a gasoline storage tank, caused a fire at around 10:30 a.m. The fire was declared under control by 11 a.m. Township police closed area roadways for 45 min. as a result.

LAKEWOOD- Mayor Menashe Miller could be using internet-based technology to attend the Township’s reorganization meeting. Miller, who’s an Air Force major and chaplain, was deployed to Qatar and is due back Sunday. However, officials say if he’s unable to return by the meeting, he could be participating via Skype.
