Same thing going on with the VA Governor, most people don't give a crap about something tasteless a guy did 35 years ago, but the loudest and most "virtue demanding" are hounding him out of office.


Somehow our Spartacus has ignored the NJ gal in the Alvarez mess, (after attacking Judge Kavanaugh), but has gone after the VA folks. Go figure.

Dude, you are making a fool out of yourself: those two specific examples (Mazda CX5 and Acura RDX) are VERY short by SUV standards. In fact, they are both shorter than the average mid size sedan, certainly shorter than a Ford Fusion.

I am not trying to argue or defend the ownership of SUVs (people can own whatever they choose!) but your stance just comes across as petty and misguided when your justifications are based on misconceptions.

You can keep spouting your crank, but it is nothing more than shaking your fist at the sky: you will accomplish nothing because your argument and logic are not based on facts, just feelings and misconceptions.


Maplewood? No overnight street parking in Maplewood.

Sorry, but if parking spaces are in short supply, as you suggest, a $15 a year residential permit does not help. Make the permit $1,500/year and surely demand will not exceed supply.


Punish local car owners while developers are getting zoning variances allowing them to provide less onsite parking, forcing more people to park on the street? That's ass backwards.

JC gives out zoning variances allowing builders to short parking in their new structures, then JC residents complain about lack of street parking.

A solution is available, don't give out those types of variances.

Wrong. The $1,000 is for non residents to park in municipal lots. Residents get a car sticker, for free, allowing them to park on their own residential block. The non resident fees are directed to out of towners who commute via NJ Transit trains and need to park their cars somewhere.

The original point is JC's very low parking fees are not helpful with respect to parking or having to constantly navigate around double parked cars.


Other than Front or Broad Streets there is no parking issue in Red Bank; like many suburban towns people complain if they have to walk a half block to a store or restaurant. Comparing JC parking to Red Bank parking is absurd.



Uuuuhhh yeah...and why is that? Put your thinking cap on. Like I mentioned before, compare the costs of acquiring a residential permit. If Jersey City charged what Red Bank does, it would not have the parking issues it has today.

Free or nearly free parking isn't really free if you spend a lot of time looking for a space or are sitting in traffic, taboot. That is, if you consciously valie your time, like I do.


By the way, Red Bank offers residents FREE on street parking on their own block, they just have to show their license and registration to verify. FREE is quite a bit lower than JC resident parking costs.

Registration costs are more expensive for heavyweight cars, so big SUV’s are paying more. And because they use more gas they’re paying more in gas tax. Force them off street? Not going to happen.

I sense a 'tax the rich' sentiment here, but plenty of middle and lower class people drive SUV's. It'd be hugely regressive.

The financial support is huge, JC spends 25% more per student than the state average, which itself is among the highest in the country. If JC needs more school funding it can raise the local tax rate, which is far below the state average.

Women love to drive them. They feel safe, sit high, and carry a ton of stuff.

At the same time, urban density has also changed, and social engineering has led to developers being encouraged to underbuild on site parking, impacting street parking.

Of course it’s possible. But Murphy’s response to the questions about his administrations reaction (how can they not tell us who hired the alleged rapist?) points to a true cover up. Non disclosure forms signed by everyone, down apparently to the food truck operator?

A meaningless statistic without their percentage of NJ income earned.


Not sure, but given NJ’s income tax is very progressive I’m sure it’s even worse. Top earners pay quite a higher % than low earners.
