Turnpike Announcement on Vehicle Using Emergency Break

From DOT Rep: 

"Traffic Operations has notified me that there are numerous instances where the Emergency Use Only break in the median is used to make a U Turn. If a Survey/SUE firm does this, evidence of the offender will be submitted to the Highway Patrol and the subject firm will lose the privilege of working on any Turnpike Contracts. Even if the vehicle has no markings, ownership can be obtained through the tag number."
"Also remember there is a strict adherence to MOT Standards: signs, cones, approved reflective safety vests, proper footwear and flashers/strobes on the vehicles are mandatory. Driving or walking across the paved surface, wrong way driving or backing along the side of the pavement is strictly forbidden."
