Hoboken robbing drivers?
One Hoboken411 reader – and small business owner – sent in an example of how the City seems desperate to generate revenue to fill the massive budget shortfall – by stealing from local residents and business owners. Not cool! Makes you wonder if city employees have been given a firm objective to issue tickets – even if vehicles are not quite yet in violation!
City of Hoboken desperate for ticket revenue!
“Can you believe the Hoboken Parking Authority meter guy gave me a ticket BEFORE my meter ran out!
I went out to put more money in the meter and I already had a ticket on my windshield, even though there were 4 minutes left on the meter.
I have one picture showing three minutes left and the folded ticket on my windshield. The other picture shows the ticket was timestamped at 7:30 pm… although as you can see from the timestamp on my camera phone it was really 8:30 pm… and still 1 minute was remaining on the meter. Unbelievable!”
