Residents in Woodbridge upset over improper parking tickets

WOODBRIDGE - A number of Woodbridge residents are upset after receiving $54 parking tickets for parking on Lafayette Road.

The issue stems from a number of "No Parking" signs placed on the property beside the road.

Sgt. Eric Nelson, of the Woodbridge police, says the signs are actually owned by PSE&G, not the city, and were meant to deter people from parking on the property, not on the road itself.

Nelson blames the incident on the hiring of new ticketing agents who didn't know any better.

Officials say anyone who believes their parking ticket was wrongly issued can contact the Woodbridge Township Municipal Court to seek its dismissal, even if the fine has already been paid.
