Port Authority Pizza Parkers!

Port Authority enjoys tasty pizza, but you’d get a ticket!

Hoboken411 readers Dan and Andreas both noticed a massive Port Authority Police SUV parked illegally at Rosario’s Pizza on two different times recently – and think it’s unfair. If they parked there while they ate – they’d receive summonses. However, no action was taken in these instances.

Which brings up age-old questions: Should emergency workers get a pass on illegal parking when they need to eat? Or should they abide by the rules like the rest of us. What about if a big urgent matter happens while on break, and they need to run many blocks to get their “legally” parked car? Would they then be blamed for slow response times?

What is the solution for public safety workers and their vehicles?

Damned if ya do and damned if ya don’t. These guys get no breaks!

We all know how horrible parking is in this town and God forbid if I have an emergency I don’t want the Cops/EMTs/FFs having to run three+ blocks to get to their legally parked vehicle! I don’t know if you’ve seen but some of them are not too light on their feet

Oh… And did you notice in the picture that not only is that humongous SUV parked illegally, it’s also partially parked in the wheelchair accessible spot?

You can almost forgive the curb parking because it’s a large truck and, hey, everyone in Hoboken takes up the ‘yellow’ spots. But to take up someone’s special permit spot is a rude disregard for those who need it.

Does anyone remember when cops were heroes…back in 2001? Or when one is killed protecting a member of the complaining, unthankful public? You people are too funny, do your research, use common sense and shut the eff up already. One more thing, stop calling the police for your petty BS problems you want help with. 😆
I thank the article author for being objective in his presentation.

Remember when Police would say hello and be courteous and have good PR with the public…..Hmmm, maybe you see why the public is a little bitter as it might be due to how they handle themselves towards the public within hoboken and surrounding areas. I have seen on numerous occasions local police be less than polite to avg. person with language that they should be ashamed of using while in a uniform. You only get back what you give so maybe it is due justice that cell phones have cameras and the Blue Code of Silence is broken.[quote comment=”208254″]Does anyone remember when cops were heroes…back in 2001?

Not for nothing, but this seems to come up on the site every few months. If you don’t like where a vehicle is parked, call the police. Just describe it as a white SUV and give the plates — let Hoboken Police take care of the rest.

Of course, THEN people will start complaining that the cops are going on too many silly double parking calls and not patrolling the streets enough.

Or, if you really want to address the situation, walk into the restaurant and tell the cops you don’t like what they are doing.

But for pete’s sake, stop wasting your cell phone battery taking photos of double parked cop cars; we’ve got more than enough of those. Leave these guys to their meal and don’t get upset that a lightbar serves as a parking pass. If you want to enjoy the same privilege, then become a police officer.

EXACTLY. These damn la la’s taking photos seem to think these attemps at intimidation will correct a situation going on long before they arrived and will continue long after they leave. So be it. All that these fools are doing is antagonizing a situation, employing a zero tolerance for everyone, and they will STILL be ticketed for each offence. If you think cops don’t also see these postings, you’re morons. The poor little things think this is unfair, and the judge will proably agree, then tell you to pay the damn summons.[quote comment=”208243″]Not for nothing, but this seems to come up on the site every few months.

Everyone has a first time, no reason not to let them pass just because it was mentioned last year. That’s how you invoke positive change.
