Re: Recycling Ticket/Court Appearance

A security camera covering the front of your house will end the problem. I put mine up due to "neighbors" putting their unsorted recycle/trash with mine. Their bags are left behind during collection for me to deal with. I confronted one of the "neighbors" with vid and it ended.

Camera also helped with litterbugs, dog crap, and vandals. I gave vids to JCPD on more than one occasion to help out. I hate public surveillance BUT I hate having to deal with lowlifes more.

I fish there often and the teens have broken in and vandalized the pump house before. They also sneak in after the gates are locked to drink beer and smoke pot.

Wait til the school across the street opens......

Took almost a month after I mailed in my renewal forms (and some minor correction to the address that I've been living at for 7 years where somehow the JCPA spelled it "Jhersey City.") I made a couple of calls to JCPA over the first three weeks and said they had a "huge pile of mail here" and that they wouldn't be ticketing. Sure enough they didn't ticket, and I just received my new permit over the weekend.


I didn't have such luck....I hit the JCPA wall of BS....

1) I didn't receive a renewal notice

2) I got a ticket for invalid parking sticker less than 24hr after the old permit expired .Technically correct but totally dick move since I didn't get a renewal notice.

3) Took time off from work to pay ticket and go to their PA office to get new permit.

4) Even tho they didn't send a renewal notice, I have to prove my address like I'm applying for the first time, refused permit until I bring IDs.

5) I asked for a temporary permit until I return with my IDs so I wouldn't get another ticket for parking in my neighborhood with expired permit. I walked to my car before realizing she gave me AN EXPIRED TEMP PERMIT. Returned to office to get current temp permit. No apology or even acknowledgement of a mistake.

5) Another trip home for IDs and back to their office to get permit.

When asked about the missing renewal notices, the only answer I got was "since JC took over, the computer system been messed up".

Fun and games....fun and games....

The second amendment was about ensuring a weak federal government that could not exert too much influence over the states, which is why the second amendment so clearly provides that state militias could carry arms. Most of the state legislatures worried about ceding power to a centralized government that without state level militias, the federal government would "oppress" individual states.

The states still saw themselves as individual countries at the time, more similar to the European Union today, than a unified nation with multiple layers of government. This is most obvious in the Articles of Confederation, although the Articles were far too weak to be effective at all.

A lot of this nonsensical debate would be over if the original copies of the constitution had included the comma in the same place. Unfortunately, even among original copies -- there was more than one official document -- the comma indicating that "the people" refers to "state militias" is absent in some versions.

But yeah, rocket propelled grenade launchers for every man, woman and child!


The federalist papers explains "militia" to mean all able bodied men not a government power or agency. Furthermore the concerns layed out in the Federalist papers show that the 2nd amendment was including as the last line of defense against a over powered central government to ensuring the freedom of the people was never taken away.

Why is it that the US has the highest gun related crimes in the world and also the highest gun ownership ? Logic would suggest that we reduce gun ownership, but we increase it - We sure are a dumb nation lacking logic and common-sense !

The link gives statistics on gun related violence / crime - NJ is up there as one of the worse .... yippey !

http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/databl ... jan/10/gun-crime-us-state


NJ is among the top 5 as gun restrictive states....how can it be high in gun crimes?....more gun laws = less gun crimes?....ain't that the magic formula?....

Let clear this up a bit

1) NJ already has a law in the book in regards to ammo capacity of magazines.....15 rounds no more....30 round magazines are already banned in NJ.

2)Tho the federal "assault weapon" ban was not renewed... NJ, NY, CA, and MA has laws on the books controlling them.

Yep the Bergen Ave. PO lost another package for me. Presented the pink notice card and the package is nowhere to be found. The clerk offers no explanation, apology, or help, just "give me your phone number". They lost 6 packages in 5 years....not very a good ratio. I'll just complain to the postmaster and get another form letter for my collection thanking me for bringing this to their attention. Its like a 3rd world postal system.....

Do the schools even teach civil responsibility anymore? I see kids dropping trash on the ground when they are standing next to a trash can. The city can have all the trash cans and litter patrols they want but the litterers outnumber the picker uppers. Some education and public campaign is needed.

Re: towing at shoprite

Thanks croft! I spoke to Fred, he's a nice guy. I emailed the property owners today to see where they stand on this. EZ towing claim the towing request was called in by the property owner's employee. I also asked them what was the standard of proof they use to tow Video?, photo?, or just the word of a mysterious representative that cannot be contacted or called.

I'm liking this forum, I found it researching Metro Plaza towing. I'm just shocked at how long this been happening . Talking to EZ towing made me feel like I took crazy pills, Nothing they said makes any kind of sense.

Thank you! I will be contacting them. I'm going to call the property owners first to find out what their policies are in regard to the mysterious person working for them claimed by EZ towing that's calling the towing request and what is their standard of proof for towing. I have no doubt that EZ realized their mistake in towing my car since they released my car without charging a fine. It won't take a Sherlock Holmes to see me on camera in shoprite .

What irks me most is the lack of accountability. EZ towing say its the property owner's responsibility since they called in the towing request....I'm wondering if the property owner will say they know nothing....nothing at all.....

When I was on the phone with EZ trying to get my car back, I asked where is the accountability in this? The EZ guy said "what accountability?"

I said exactly....had to chuckle at that one....

Re: towing at shoprite

Hi!

I found this forum because I was a victim of EZ towing. It seems they are still doing the same predatory towing . Frankly I don't have a problem with them towing people if they leave the property but I didn't! I went shopping in Shoprite with a neighbor and thought my car was stolen when I couldn't find it.

There I was, standing in the lot with a elderly lady and $300+ of groceries between us defrosting so I hired a car service to take us home . The car service driver said my car was probably towed and not stolen, he told me to call the 2 towing companies. When I called EZ, they admitted to towing my car and said it was because we left the property to go to the mall. We did NO such thing, My neighbor and I have shoprite receipts for that time. EZ stated they are not responsible and that someone working for the property owner called to have my car towed. I asked to speak to this person so the problem could be resolved but EZ said they just get calls from them for towing and can't contact them. I asked for photo or video proof of us going to the mall and EZ said they don't take videos anymore. When I pressed for proof, EZ stated the spotter saw 2 males leaving my car headed to the mall. My neighbor is an elderly lady and when I said this, he quickly said he meant 2 persons, again he could provide no proof other than what the spotter told him.

When I was at the EZ lot to get my car back, a worker showed me a log showing the car parked at 10:30 and was towed at 11:04. the 2 shoprite receipts has the times of 11:31 and 11:34......so it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out we were really in shoprite since we filled 2 shopping carts......EZ also said the receipts was no proof since I could have picked them up, he didn't say more when I said the receipt was paid by debit card and there is a connection. EZ wasn't interested that shoprite cashier was still on duty and could ID me.


Long story short, EZ let me get my car back without paying their fee. They acted like It was all my fault and they did me a huge favor. No apology or any acknowledgment of a mistake or wrong doing of any kind ! In fact their worker at the lot tried to chastise me for being upset!

As I stated earlier, I have no problem of towing on private property , but is EZ the kind of towing Co. that the property owners want to provide service for them? Surely there must be an accountable towing company left in jersey City. I will pursue this matter to seek some answers, I'm appalled this has gone on so long and still continues.
