Bernardsville, NJ Train Station Parking:
After four years of successfully parking at the Bernardsville train station for free a couple of times per week, Bernardsville has decided to implement a serious parking system. There's a new meter for daily parking that costs 50 cents per hour (about $5 per day) and ONLY TAKES DOLLAR BILLS! What better way to guarantee I'll get a ticket?
