Holiday Traffic: Car Fire Shuts Down 3 Lane on L.I. Parkway

Out-of-state senior citizens won't get the same discount as New Jersey seniors when New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway tolls increase, unless they get a New Jersey-issued E-ZPass transponder.

As if traveling during the holiday weekend weren't nightmarish enough, drivers now have a car fire to add to their troubles.

Three out of four westbound lanes on the Southern State Parkway on Long Island were closed as of 1:50 p.m. due to a car fire.

State police say the fire is believed to be mechanical, but the cause is under investigation.

There are no injuries to report.
