    Oh noes!! One less reason to go to NJ!! What will I do??

    I'm fine with this. Please be sure to update Waze with road closure alerts around your entire state so that Waze never accidentally tries to plot a course for me across your craphole state.

    Hell, why stop at that?
    Just wall them off from the outside and shut their power off.
    Shoot anyone who tries to get out.

    Someone should call Somerville, I am sure they would be all over this. Probably tack on an exemption for cyclists and electric cars.

    There is support for something similar for Manhattan - allow residents, cabs, livery, delivery trucks... and that's it during the week. Build huge parking lots outside the island where commuters can park and take public transit into the city. I think there's some decent logic behind the idea, although it sure has it's cons too. But a little 1.5 square mile pimple in NJ, wtf?

    Well if they institute that they can solve both problems. Raze the town and make it a parking lot for people entering Manhattan!

    Ridiculous.

    " No person shall operate a vehicle on those streets or parts of streets as described in Schedule XVIII (§194-49) attached to and made a part of this Chapter during the times of the days indicated in said Schedule unless that person is a resident of the said street needing access to his home or can demonstrate or document a need to access a residence on the street or parts of streets as described."

    Good luck with that. It's like banning people in the town from using the Interwebs from 8p to 1a every night. (And not forcing Comsplat and AT&T to shut it down.)

    How will you enforce this?? Quintuple your police force??? Hahahahahahahaha!

    This is so not a problem....inundate the town with traffic and the cops become ineffective...

    "Walling off the town to through-traffic presents some pretty startling civil liberties implications. The new ordinance says any nonresidents found driving on the borough's streets during prohibited hours will have to be ready to "demonstrate or document a need to access a residence on the street." Any nonresidents stopped by police will have to explain their reason for being in the town, and what business or resident they plan on visiting while there, or risk fines and court summons."

    How do they even know who is not a resident if they have in state plates? So they will stop everyone just to be sure? Normally I would suggest locals would get pissed by that. But this is NJ.... They probably love it.

    Wanna bet those stickers somehow get tied to something like parking tickets, property taxes, etc? Registration leads to confiscation.

    I'd love to see the interstates close the on and off ramps in Leonia. Make the residents drive an extra hour or so, through back roads, to get onto the highway to get to NYC.

    Sounds like an excellent opportunity for revenue generation, just start writing tickets sufficient to support the number of additional positions you need.

    I am pretty sure the town already knows who owns what property in the limits and what cars are registered in the town.

    Maybe they should just charge a toll, but it would have to be for everyone. Maybe $20 each time you enter the town ... that is right in line with typical tolls that NY'ers are used to. Everyone there has transponders so deployment would be relatively easy.

    that's awesome! Between CA MA and NJ, it's like retard olympics in who can out dumbass each other and every time you think that you'd heard it all, one of these states comes out and completely blows your mind away.

    It's NJ someone will be counterfeiting these stickers within an hour of issue and selling them for $10.00 each.

    I'm sure they do. I'm just speculating that they'll tie your ability to renew to other unrelated things like overdue library books, delinquent water bills, etc. Freedom to drive on their roads is a privilege that can be revoked. Just my guess, but that's how these things tend to get treated.

    Is anyone actually surprised that another progressive state did something that borders on utterly retarded and will cost them dearly in legal costs at taxpayer expense?
