The Montclair Township Council Tuesday considered — and then nixed — a plan to stop ticketing drivers who park at broken meters. Instead, the township plans to combat the increasing number of dead meters by installing payment kiosks at lots throughout town.
Eleven percent of the parking meters throughout Montclair are now out of commission, up from the 4.5% reported in June. And residents have taken to social media to vent their frustration over getting tickets for parking at inoperable meters.
