A desperate state looks to gouge motorist for parking violations

In Uncategorized on October 22, 2008 at 9:50 pm

A Ridgewood resident has found and unpaid parking ticket in Toms River has caused them to have there drivers license privileges suspended! She has been informed that for $100 fee plus payment of the parking fine and her driving privileges will be restored. The resident is not entirely sure where Toms River is and is wondering how, when and where she received at ticket? Perhaps she missed it in the mail, but more likely money hungry state looks for more opportunities to stick to its tax paying residents, seems a little desperate and a bit of an over kill for a parking ticket?

As more and more people and more and more business flee this state this little annoyance maybe just one more reason for people to pick up and leave. Perhaps the state would be better served if it focused on bringing down some of the high costs of doing business and living in this state instead of spending so much energy trying to penalize people for just living there life. Yes the ticket should have been paid ,but I’ll remember this the next time I see a $44million dollar train station renovation or $9 million Village hall renovation or some one asks me to vote yes on and $85 million school budget ,sorry no thanks I pass I am too busy moving and I am taking my business with me .

    Toms River is allowed to turn this over to the state for enforcement. Next time feed the meter.

    The “Arrest” for for contempt of court for failing to answer a summons. This is an age old legal practice that has been around long before you and I were born. The court also notifies the DMV who will suspend you driving privilages until the matter is resolved.

    Many people blow of parking tickets with the attitued of: “what are they going to do arrest me if I don’t pay?”
    The answer is YES!

  9. I think Toms River will be just fine …..even if you do head off to the Hamptons!! You and Muffy enjoy yourselves!

  10. maybe the Toms River cops should get off there duffs and do some real police work

  11. meanwhile the almost ever single 9/11 hijacker lived in new jersey but we’re too busy arresting people for unpaid parking tickets

  12. it must have been in the summer those towns need to make their payroll

  13. “meanwhile the almost ever single 9/11 hijacker lived in new jersey but we’re too busy arresting people for unpaid parking tickets”
    How quickly people forget – A South Hackensack Police Officer had one of the 9/11 hijackers at a Rt. 46 Motel and could do nothing because the FBI did not share information with local police at that time and there were not grounds to arrest him (guess he paid all his parking tickets)

  14. yes it is just so easy to be a coward in this state arresting people for parking tickets but you can arrest a 9/11 suspect ….I think this is the whole point of this post ….

  15. yes it is just so easy to be a coward in this state arresting people for parking tickets but you can arrest a 9/11 suspect ….I think this is the whole point of this post ….
