NJ Rev Stat § 27:1A-5.14 (2015) What's This?

27:1A-5.14. Defense, indemnification of owner, operator
2. The Commissioner of Transportation, or the commissioner's designee, may agree to defend and indemnify any person, who, pursuant to a written agreement with the commissioner entered into pursuant to subsection c. of section 1 of this amendatory and supplementary act, owns, operates, or maintains an approved park-and-ride lot or facility, against claims, causes of action, demands, costs or judgments against that person arising as a direct result of the operation, ownership or maintenance of that approved park-and-ride lot or facility. The commissioner is authorized to reach an agreement to defend and indemnify a person upon the terms and limitations the commissioner deems reasonable and appropriate.

An agreement to defend and indemnify pursuant to this section does not bar, reduce, limit or affect any remedies which the commissioner may have to enforce the commissioner's agreement or to assert a claim for damages to which the commissioner may be entitled arising out of the person's failure to perform the agreement, or for the recovery of funds expended for the defense of a person if the defense was undertaken in response to a claim or cause of action brought against the person which is proven to have arisen from gross negligence, willful misconduct, fraud, intentional tort, bad faith, or criminal conduct.

No one other than the person owning, operating, or maintaining the approved park-and-ride lot or facility pursuant to an agreement with the commissioner has the right to enforce any agreement for defense or indemnification between that person and the commissioner.
