Reader Mail: Emergency Vehicle Parking
Private car ticketed; Hoboken PD & FD not
Hoboken411 reader bmacqueens brings up the age old question of parking offenses by private citizens vs. city employed emergency workers.
“These were taken last Friday night, around 7:30, within one minute of each other, all at the corner of 12th and Washington. The cop car – obviously parked in the bus stop. The fire dept. SUV – obviously double parked. This poor bastard – on 12th street in a resident-only (green sign) zone. Maybe that was his offense?
But, you can be sure that nobody ticketed the cop or fire dept. truck. Ah, just another day in justice-filled Hoboken.”
Question of the Day: Should on-duty emergency personnel (Police, Fire) be exempt from parking violations? Or should they waste valuable time looking for parking like the rest of us?
