Policeman parks motorcycle and…
Hoboken411 reader Kevin submitted this picture (to put in the “City Offender Zone” category) and said: “You have to love when the police park in a handicap zone… taken at 1:30pm on Nov. 17, 2008”
Not a big deal, IMO
I looked at this picture – and while it was parked in the “blue striped” area adjacent to the actual handicap parking spot – I think the policeman went out of his way to make parking in that spot trouble-free. The striped area is just in case a wheelchair needs to be used… and in this case, the cop parked at the END of the spot as to not get in the way of any doors opening. And he was probably there for just a few minutes.
Now the question is: Should we “look the other way” just the same way cops can let us get away with “warnings” if we commit a moving violation? Or should public servants be held to the utmost letter of the laws they enforce?
