When you're tired, it's best to use a pillow and blanket at home for sleeping, and not the front seat of a car while on the road.

Two people were arrested in East Brunswick, not for sleeping, although that's how they were found at a stop sign on Suydam Street near Kennedy Boulevard around 11:04 pm on Saturday night, but for drugs and alcohol.

East Brunswick Police said one of their patrol officers pulled up to a vehicle idling in the road at a stop sign and when he approached the vehicle, saw both people inside sleeping.
