Which of the following statements about highway speed limits is FALSE?

A The minimum speed limit is not enforceable.

On the highway, you should always try to keep up with traffic but without exceeding the maximum speed limit. However, New Jersey law requires you to slow down below the maximum speed limit whenever driving conditions are hazardous. The legal minimum speed limit is enforced. Under New Jersey law, you can be cited for driving so slowly as to block traffic behind you. If vehicle trouble prevents you from keeping up with traffic – especially if you cannot drive at or above the minimum speed limit – exit the highway, turn on your emergency flashers, and seek assistance.
