Ratings and Reviews
It’s ok, responding time is slow
I have a consistent issue of people blocking my driveway on sip ave/Corbin ave. You can submit and issue but they show up 2-3 hours later. By that time the person had already moved their car. I would say 3/9 issues I submitted were done. And I would prefer them to tow the car too so I can get out of my driveway! Imagine you waking up and have to go to work.. but you can’t and I’m stuck calling out of work. Does not make sense and the ticket violation is only $54 (Offense: 39:4-138D - Blocking Driveway).. $54 fine is not equivalent to me missing a whole day of work! I rated 3/5 stars for the app because of the response time of the officers. I wish I can post pictures so I can show proofs
Parking authority is a BUST with this app
This app has good potential but it’s JERSEY CITY. When you submit an issue for a clear parking violation you get unqualified and uninformed person for parking offenses. The parking authority person doesn’t know how to properly do their job. They are lazy and inexperienced. For an example, a persons car is clearing blocking the sidewalk :Offense is 39:4-139f. When the parking authority lady arrives she begins to laugh and then that person mock the person submitting the request to the neighborhood by showing the photo to everyone and saying “you got a rat on this block!” Now, she then states that the truck isn’t in violation when in clear daylight this truck is completely blocking the sidewalk and people have to walk into the street to get around. Now, after her mocking and failure to issue she gets in her little scooter and rides away into the sunset. Meanwhile, parents with strollers are forced to go into the street to get around. Once you took away the police from giving tickets and gave it to this department the quality and knowledge of enforcement quickly went downhill. Good luck with the app but you’re in Jersey City, quality of treatment will never change.
Is the app still being supported?
I only give a 3 because it has work great in the past. But I have tried using it in the last 3 months and my issues are never touched. Last 3 months score would be 0
