None of the new meters work properly. The signs say 2 hour limit, but you can only put 1 coin in for 1 hour at a time. God forbid you want to go out for lunch or dinner in NP....you have to get up every hour to check the meter to find a meter maid waiting for the second it's up. For a mile long strip of bars and liquor stores there is no where to park over night. So if someone has too much to drink and makes the smart decison to take a cab home... they get towed! $130! down the street! The tow guys are out there at 6am! New Paltz needs to find a better way to make money then harrassing drivers.
