Tremitiedi and Tickets

3/23/2009:

I’m sure many of you have seen this maneuver on Washington Street (and other side streets for that matter) each time there’s street cleaning: The cars sort of do a invisible mini “double park,” where they leave enough room for the sweeper as well as cars – then pull into a spot once the it passes by. Personally – I don’t find it a big deal, as long as traffic isn’t blocked.

However, Richard Tremitiedi (City Council Candidate) feels otherwise:

Double park OK, in spot – No good

“Last week, went to Tucker’s to p/u my meds. and parked in spot… when I left, the alt. parking util. guy had just given me a ticket OK, (just doing his job, which is to provide a path for the sweeper) but then I noticed all the double parked cars who did not get tickets… Of course, the guy was correct in giving me the ticket but the double parked cars which are practically in the middle of the street due to the parallel parking and are posing a hazard did not…. so much for safety and common sense…just some ‘ironics’ in this strange (city) world”

411 says: This is just an example of why it might make sense to give the Hoboken Parking Authority some additional power to be able to issue tickets for other parking offenses besides meters, permits and sweepers.

However, I can almost guarantee if that’s the case – we’d have THOUSANDS more lost and found parking tickets. Have you seen how horribly lazy they are with placing them on cars? I was mystified witnessing this earlier in the week – they must think stepping out of the money cart will give them a coronary or something… gosh.

The tickets are a way to make up for the councils fiscal mistakes. The joke is it doesn’t even get on your windshield and then the first you hear of it is of course the letter telling you it has gone up. It is all part of the same problem which is too high expenses. This town doesn’t know how to cut, so they will do anything they can (no matter how cheap) to make up for their mistakes. Just another thing to thank mayor Roberts for.

Just like everything else if you are a new person(defined as someone not born in town) or
you don’t have any connections You always get a tickets . If you are a city employee or city council member you get your tickets torn up (remember the parking employee that got fired for giving tickets to the “Wrong People”
Not only do you get tickets – You have to pay for obscure licenses for turning off the water and have to do $25,000 studies before you redo your roof .If you don’t use a in town contractor that will pay kick backs ,you get projects turned down.
If you have inside connection –you can break federal laws –state laws , city laws and get any project oked. You can dig up the street ,ruin the water ,gas, and sewer pipes and the rest of us have to pay for it.
Not one department operates legally and one has to sue like crazy to get them to follow the law.
Most of the police have an attitude and get paid a fortune for doing low level security guard work. They tell you they are Hero’s and most of them ran out of town during 911 even when they were on duty.But Tommy Molta and his free Emergency volunteers were down there helping wounded from The Towers nonstop . DePalma went to Iraq so I can’t say anything about him.
That’s Hoboken- Time to kick the Bums out

“i really agree that the parking authority must look into the
vehicles and boot the those that do not have any rsidential parking permit especially those that are pretending to be from other staes. they should boot them as often as possible”.

They boot residents too. If you’re Hoboken parking decal is expired they’ll boot and/or tow your car.[/quote]

Seems like about 50% of the boots I have seen in the past couple weeks had Hoboken permits.[/quote]

They probably didn’t pay the $25 fee that is how I got booted and it was around this time 2 years ago. Actually I did pay there was a mess up at HPU and they had to remove the boot but whatever I remember getting booted on 3/15 and getting it removed days later.
