Parking makes people angry

5/21/2008:

10 minutes in the past, a report came over the Live Hoboken police and fire scanner that “someone attacked a parking meter with a sledgehammer.”

I missed the location, but it doesn’t matter, just sounds funny. Here’s what it might look like:

Do parking tickets make residents so angry that they’d be willing to risk $100’s in fines, and possible jail time?

Because the cops won’t do it.[/quote] This is plain and simple Police negligence of their duties as the civil service law enforcement employees of our community. You need to get the officers names time of arrival. Then document any action taken by the officers. Witness accounts are very helpful in such matters.

Sad but true Police officers are people just like us and there are great ones and slackers. If there is an easy way out of doing their job the slacker will take it. It’s only when superiors get involved does the slacker make an effort. The only reason… Read more »

I don’t know how big your Uhaul is, but I had a 14 footer and I got 2 signs adjacent to a fire hydrant, so it was more than enough room.
