Reader says New parking system is not too hard to figure out . . . it’s too damn inconvenient to warrant my using it

New parking system is not too hard to figure out . . . it’s too damn inconvenient to warrant my using it. I’ve kept dimes and quarters in my car for the past 30 years so, no, I am not toting around rolls of quarters in my pockets . Grab a quarter, drop it into the meter and go. Easy. I don’t have to memorize my five license plates or kept that information stored on my phone. My trips to the CBD are short in nature . . . run into Rite-Aid, go the the ATM, post office, etc. I’d spend more time going to the meter and inputting my information than it takes my to run an average errand. And there is no way in hell I’m parking in a garage at the far end of the CBD to run a 5 minute errand. This system might work for diners and strollers but it’s not going to work for the bulk of Ridgewoodians who are conducting their every day lives. We will simply be taking our business elsewhere.


And FYI – the article says you can put quarters into the muni-meter so there will still be a guy walking around town collecting quarters.

  1. Now Now calm down. This morning I needed to shop at Rite Aid. Soooooo I parked on Union Street for free tweedly de de. I got some exercise out of it too with the short walk. Short walks are my secret to a bikini bod. Short and fast, easy quickies and free.

  2. I like many shop at Stop and Shop every day for small errands milk paper goods
    Frozen items vegetables etc and run quick errands around that lot never using more than 30 to 45 minutes in that convenient lot with a good management that understands
    this accomodation to loyal customers each week and for many working from home each day or two.A great store loyal to customers and the town should take a lesson from their management.Kings is great as well but lot is restricted by a monitor
