We at ivalueSafety.com want to raise the awareness of a lesser known law pertaining to Stop for Frozen Dessert Trucks per the following:
When approaching or overtaking an ice cream or frozen dessert truck from either direction, and the truck is flashing red lights and posting a stop signal arm, a motorist must:
– Yield the right-of-way to any person who is crossing the roadway to or from the truck.
– Watch out for children and be prepared to stop.
– Stop, then drive past the truck at a slow speed of no more than 15 mph.
A motorist need not stop on a dual highway if he/she is on the other side of a safety island or raised median.
The laws above apply to the State of NJ. However, you should familiarize yourself with the applicable laws in your personal state.
