Guest dave S. Posted February 27, 2009 Report Share Posted February 27, 2009 I have a quick comment about the letter, i guess from the editor in the observer this week about parking at your own risk . I think the writer is totally out of bounds on this one. What would the writer want the parking authority people to do? not write tickets? its their job to write tickets for expired meters. Thats there one and only job, thats what they are looking for , expired meters...so if they see a meter that has expired, they are told to write a ticket. Now, i have gotten many many many parking tickets for not moving my vehicle for the sweeper and a couple for time running out. And yeah, it stinks, but i pay my fine because i know i was wrong. the fact that the the writer of the article states, "the meter just expired like 5 minutes ago" doesn't matter. that means she should have put a quarter in the meter 6 minutes prior and she wouldn't have a ticket. She tells people in the article to write the judge if they feel they have been wrongly given a parking ticket. The only way you should write the judge a letter is if the meter was broken. This idea that it was only 5 minutes expired is insane. She sounds like a crybaby to me. Nobody wants to hear you couldn't find a quarter. We all have to put money in the meter and so should she. She also makes it a point that the parking authority car was parking in the yellow. Well NJ law allows government vehicles to be in violation of title 39 while on duty. With parking being hard to find, i dont want a spot being taken up by a violations car when i could put my car there. Plus it would be rediculous for one of the officers to have to look for parking every time they were to get out to issue summonses. It sounds petty, but im sick of liberal media outlets complaining about everything. Its time americans stop thinking of themselves as victims and start standing up and taking responsiblity for ones actions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
