Aggressive Parking Enforcement Asbury Park’s Latest Complaint
First shootings and now over aggressive parking enforcement. Asbury Park visitors are complaining that the 1.4 mile city is driving visitors away by issuing tickets minutes after they expire.
According to the Asbury Park Press, Police Chief Mark Kinmon has reportedly dismissed the criticism saying that it’s not so unusual to address parking-related issues when parking is so limited.
He hasn’t addressed criticism from the Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor who accuses the police for not being aggressive enough when it comes to preventing the gun violence that has plagued the city since the beginning of the year.
Asbury Park has reportedly made $2 million in parking revenue in 2012 and over $600,000 since June of this year.
