So much about this sign just makes me want to park beyond it. Enjoying the view of the bay from Long Beach Island, N.J., I also can’t help but wonder about all sorts of legal issues, beginning with ordinances on signage and leading me to wonder about selective enforcement (are these signs on every street, or just the ones with really good views?) and about going to trial over a parking ticket.
From there, I contemplate visual detritus and the impact of just so much writing on my enjoyment of the view. Then I do a bit of quick research and learn that all sorts of limitations on parking exist in Long Beach Township, from prohibitions on parking beyond signed street-ends near the ocean or bay to restrictions on parking near town-owned tennis courts to prohibitions on parking at specified culs-de-sac.
Legal research can be fun. Parking restrictions, however, aren’t quite as enjoyable.
