Are Rehoboth Meters A Scam?

As heard on Delaware 1059FM’s Jared Morris and Dan Gaffney Shows…

Jeanie Writes:

Beware!!!! What a rip off!!! We went to Rehoboth tonight and put $5.75 in the meter and when we got back to the van we still had time on our meter as you can see along with this ticket for $30 for overtime parking. We called the meter department while sitting there and they said the ticketing officer had not taken a picture of the meter but didn’t know why. Well I told them why!!! There was still time on the meter. They said we could contest it but it would have to be in middle of week on a weekday which would mean missed work for David for a $30 fine. This is insane when they are already charging .25 for 8 minutes to park. ‪#‎rehobothbeach‬ — with David Morgan and Jared Morris in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

REHOBOTH BEACH METER DEPARTMENT IS A RIP OFF!!!!!! So we called the Rehoboth meter department and spoke to a supervisor and got the same story. We must appeal it on Wednesday at 2:00. They know people won’t take off work for a $30 fine! They are more or less saying they don’t know if we added money before I took the picture of the meter so if we go to court will they say the same thing? How do we prove we didn’t do that? It is our word against theirs and the picture of the meter does not prove anything to them. Stay away from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. They are crooks and thieves!! ‪#‎Rehoboth‬ ‪#‎RehobothBeach‬ ‪#‎ripoff‬ ‪#‎scam‬ ‪#‎parkingviolation‬ ‪#‎stilltimeonmeter‬ ‪#‎RehobothBoardwalk‬ ‪#‎RehobothParkingAuthority‬ — with Dan Gaffney and 3 others at Rehoboth Boardwalk.

More info about appealing parking violations at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. They did not tell us this when we called them on Saturday night about still having time on our parking meter. You must fill out paperwork stating you want to appeal!!! The person I talked to today told me we must come in and fill our paper work for court. After some ranting and raving about them not telling us this on Saturday night he did take the information over the phone. So beware once again that if you get a parking violation in Rehoboth and want to appeal it be sure to fill out paper work while you are there because you may not be as lucky as I was when I called and get someone that will do it over the phone. ‪#‎RehobothBeach‬ ‪#‎RehobothBoardwalk‬ ‪#‎Scam‬ ‪#‎ParkingViolation‬ ‪#‎stilltimeonmeter‬ ‪#‎Rehobothparkingmeter‬ ‪#‎ripoff‬ — with Dan Gaffney and 3 others.

Talked To Jeanie on the Radio in the 6pm Hour:

New Stanton Callin’

Take that ticket to New Stanton
Tell em where to stick it
That ransom that they gave you
was for a big job, in a brand new city
here’s a story ’bout stand ’round, getting stuck or breaking free.

I have a little rabbit in my pocket.
his name is Micheal and he works for the weekly newspaper
I got an alibi
she’s standing on the platform in Charlotte, waving goodbye

She said I was givin’ her the business
it’s a business you don’t want to get in
don’t you hear it’s so old fashioned
they got a lot of brand new toys
to ignite the passions of the midnight cowboys

There used to be a preacher down in Whaleyville
He was on the wrong side of the law
If you take stock, man, of what the Lord done to me
here’s proof that any man can change

He said that you have some money left on your contract
Couldn’t you leave me a loan when you leave for the city

Never thought you’d be a parent
it’s apparent you’re leaving this place
as soon you were told
you’re rubble when you hit the road
gotta make a dollar before this whole place is sold

take the last train out of here
there ain’t a lot of carts left on the rack
I can tell you, true, to watch you that I’m never coming back
if it don’t work out I’ll see you on the wrong side of the track. (Jared Morris/BMI)
