If any part or parts of this chapter are, for any reason, held to be invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this chapter.
All former traffic ordinances of the Borough of Metuchen are hereby repealed, and all ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict with or inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter are hereby repealed, except that this repeal shall not affect or prevent the prosecution or punishment of any person for any act done or committed in violation of any ordinance hereby repealed prior to the taking effect of this chapter.
A. 
When the Borough of Metuchen committee finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur when traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations and utility work, above or below the ground which requires blocking the street and obstructing the normal flow of traffic; and that such obstructions are or can become dangerous when not properly controlled. In order to better promote the public health, safety, peace and welfare, it is necessary to establish controls and regulations directed to the safe and expeditious movement of traffic through and around construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work forces performing these operations.
B. 
The Borough of Metuchen in the County of Middlesex, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways, hereafter known as the MUTCD, except as hereby supplemented and amended, as it controls and regulates whenever construction, maintenance operations or utility work obstructs the normal flow of traffic. Any person, contractor or utility that fails to comply with the provisions of the MUTCD while performing such work is in violation of this section.
C. 
Preconstruction meeting. It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of a public utility as required under the public utility agreement, Section 16:25-9.2, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the street to contact the Police Department of the Borough of Metuchen, in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting and submit plans for the safe movement of traffic during such period of construction or work. Any person, contractor or utility who fails to comply with this section prior to the start of such work or whose plans are not approved by the Police Department of the Borough of Metuchen is in violation of this section.
D. 
Emergency contact telephone numbers. The person, contractor or utility shall provide at least two emergency contact telephone numbers to be called in case of emergency problems at the construction or maintenance site prior to the start of any work. If for any reason, emergency contact cannot be made, or if the emergency contact person does not respond to a call from the Police Department to correct such hazardous condition, the Borough of Metuchen may respond to correct the hazardous condition(s). The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Borough of Metuchen shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility responsible for the condition.
E. 
Hours. There shall be no construction, maintenance, operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Borough before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. The officer in charge of the Borough Police Department may adjust this time limit to permit work prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. If the officer in charge determines that the construction or maintenance operations prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. would substantially delay traffic or cause a safety or health hazard, the work shall then be permitted only between 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m.
F. 
Road closing. Road closings and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the Borough Police Department.
G. 
Traffic directors. Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the Borough Police Department that same is necessary to provide for the safe and expeditious movement of traffic.
H. 
Stop work. The Borough Police Department shall have the authority to stop work, including the removal of equipment and vehicles, stored material within the street right-of-way, backfilling of open excavations and/or related work, in order to abate any nuisance and/or safety hazard or for any violation of this section.
I. 
Site preparation. It is to be expressly understood that no materials, vehicles or equipment are to be placed in the roadway or sidewalk until all construction, signs, light devices and pavement markings are installed.
J. 
Violations and penalties.
(1) 
Any person, contractor or utility who commits a violation of this section shall, upon conviction thereof, for a first offense pay a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $500 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days. For a second offense, upon conviction thereof, pay a fine of not less than $250 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days.
(2) 
A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during or on which violation occurs or continues.
The provisions of this chapter imposing a time limit on parking shall not relieve any person of the duty to observe other more restrictive provisions prohibiting or limiting the stopping or standing or parking of vehicles as set forth in N.J.S.A. 39:4-138, any other New Jersey Statute or as hereinafter provided.
No person shall park a vehicle on streets or parts of streets described in the following section except at the angle designated and only within the painted white stall lines.

A. 
Findings and purposes. Local merchants have reported to the Mayor and Council that their limited private off-street parking facilities designated for their short-term customers and suppliers have become invaded by long-term commuter parkers who have taken spaces necessary for the operation of those businesses. By this section, the Mayor and Council wish to reaffirm existing municipal power to enforce properly posted signs in these private parking areas which advise customers of the business(es) on the premises. Since such public enforcement is in aid of the private merchant, issuance of the summonses delineated herein shall be had primarily at the instance of the merchant identifying vehicles which are parked without the consent of the business owner or for a period in excess of the time for which consent has been given. For these purposes, this section had been adopted pursuant to general municipal power set forth generally in N.J.S.A. 40A:48-2 and, in particular, that authority provided by N.J.S.A. 39:4-56.6 et seq.
B. 
Parking illegally on private property without permission. No person shall park or leave unattended a vehicle on private property without the consent of the owner or other person in control or possession of the property or for a period in excess of the limited time for which consent had been given by prominent written signs displayed in the parking lot, except in case of emergency or disablement of the vehicle, in which case the owner or operator shall arrange for the expeditious removal of the vehicle. In the event of disablement, it is the responsibility of the owner or person in control of the vehicle to notify the property owner.
C. 
Enforcement of violation by municipal police. Any municipal police officer, specific policeman or duly authorized Parking Authority person may, upon request of the property owner wherein a vehicle is parked in violation of the preceding subsection, enter upon the property and issue a summons for its violation. Persons violating this section shall be subject to a fine of $26. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any vehicle parked or left standing in violation of the provisions of this section may also be subject to all removal and impounding remedies provided in this chapter or by law.
D. 
Private remedies of the property owner. Nothing contained in this section shall be construed to limit or restrict in any way the private remedies of the owner or possessor of the property upon which the illegal vehicle is left as provided for in N.J.S.A. 39:4-56.6.
A. 
Upon the declaration of an emergency, there shall be no parking upon the streets where temporary EMERGENCY NO PARKING signs are displayed. The Chief of Police or, in his absence, the ranking police officer is authorized to declare an emergency and to direct the posting of EMERGENCY NO PARKING signs when weather conditions, accidents, road construction, fire or public celebrations dictate or require avoidance of hazards or other conditions which interfere with the free flow of traffic. Notification that EMERGENCY NO PARKING signs are being or will be posted shall be given to the operator or owner of any vehicle which has been parked prior to the posting of the signs.
B. 
The effectiveness of this subsection is contingent upon the signs being erected as required by law.
A. 
Removal. Whenever snow has fallen and the accumulation is such that it covers the streets and highways, an emergency shall exist and no vehicle shall be parked on the streets or highways or portions thereof indicated. The above parking prohibitions shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased until the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic.
B. 
Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation shall be deemed a nuisance and a menace to the safe and proper regulation of traffic and any police officer may provide for the removal of such vehicle. The owner shall pay the reasonable costs of the removal and storage which may result from such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.

C. 
Designation of parking spaces. The Borough Council is authorized to provide for the marking off of individual parking spaces in the parking meter zones, said parking spaces to be designated by lines painted or marked on the curbing or surface of the street or lot. At each space so marked off, it shall be unlawful to park any vehicle in such a way that said vehicle shall not be entirely within the limits of the space so designated.
D. 
Installation of parking meters. In said parking meter zones, the Parking Authority shall cause parking meters to be installed upon the curb, sidewalk or area immediately adjacent to the parking spaces provided in this section. No parking meters shall be installed in areas where parking is prohibited pursuant to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 39:4-138. The Parking Authority shall be responsible for the regulation, control, operation, maintenance and use of such parking meters. Each device shall be so set as to display a signal showing legal parking upon the deposit of the appropriate coin or currency, lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable method of payment as determined by the Parking Authority, for the period of time prescribed in this section. Each device shall be so arranged that upon the expiration of the lawful time limit, it will indicate by a proper, visible signal that the lawful parking period has expired, and in such case the right of such vehicle to occupy such space shall cease, and the operator, owner, possessor or manager thereof shall be subject to the penalties provided.
[Amended 7-16-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-17]
E. 
Operation of parking meters. Except in a period of emergency determined by an officer of the Police or Fire Department, or in compliance with the directions of a police officer or traffic control sign or signal, when any vehicle shall be parked in any parking space alongside or next to which a parking meter is located, the operator of such vehicle shall, upon entering said parking meter space, immediately deposit or cause to be deposited in said meter such proper coin or currency, lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable method of payment as determined by the Parking Authority as is required for such parking meter and as is designated by proper directions on the meter, and when required by the directions on the meter, the operator of such vehicle, after the deposit of the proper coin, or currency, or lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable payment methods as determined by the Parking Authority shall also set in operation the timing mechanism on such meter in accordance with directions properly appearing thereon, and failure to deposit such proper coin, currency, or lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable payment method as determined by the Parking Authority and to set the timing mechanism in operation when so required shall constitute a violation of this chapter. Upon the deposit of such coin, currency, lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable payment method as determined by the Parking Authority (and the setting of the timing mechanism in operation when so required), the parking space may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of time which has been prescribed for the part of the street in which said parking space is located, provided that any person placing a vehicle in a parking meter space adjacent to a meter which indicates that unused time has been left in the meter by the previous occupant of the space shall not be required to deposit a coin, currency or other method of payment so long as his occupancy of said space does not exceed the indicated unused parking time. If said vehicle shall remain parked in any such parking space beyond the parking time limit set for such parking space and if the meter shall indicate such illegal parking, then and in that event such vehicle shall be considered as parking overtime and beyond the period of legal parking time, and such parking shall be deemed a violation of this chapter.
[Amended 7-16-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-17]
F. 
Manner of parking. When a parking meter space is parallel with the adjacent curb or sidewalk, no person shall park or permit the parking of any vehicle in such parking space in any other position than with the foremost part of such vehicle nearest to the parking meter; when a parking meter space is diagonal to the curb or sidewalk, no person shall park or permit the parking of any vehicle in such parking space in any other position than with the foremost part of such vehicle nearest to the parking meter; when a parking meter shall have been installed at the head of and immediately adjacent to any parking space on a municipal off-street parking lot, no person shall park or permit the parking of any vehicle in such parking space in any other position than with the foremost part of such vehicle nearest to the parking meter; provided, however, that in municipal off-street parking lots, signs shall be erected indicating that head-on parking only is permitted. In any event, a vehicle shall be parked within the lines marked on the pavement measuring such parking space.
G. 
Tampering with parking meter. It shall be unlawful and a violation of the provisions of this chapter for any person to deface, injure, tamper with, open or willfully break, destroy or impair the usefulness of any parking meter installed under the provisions of this chapter.
H. 
Slugs. It shall be unlawful and a violation of the provisions of this chapter for any person to deposit or cause to be deposited in any parking meter any slug, device or metal substance or other substitute for lawful coins.
I. 
Purpose of meter deposits. The coins, currency, lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable payments required to be deposited in parking meters as provided herein are hereby levied and assessed as fees to provide for the proper regulation and control of traffic upon the public streets and also the cost of supervising and regulating the parking of vehicles in the parking meter zones created thereby, and to cover the cost of the purchase, supervision, protection, inspection, installation, operation, maintenance, control and use of the parking meters described herein.
[Amended 7-16-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-17]
J. 
Collection of coins, currency, lawful money of the United States of America, credit or debit card or other acceptable payments from meters; disposition thereof. It shall be the duty of the Borough Council to designate some proper person or persons to make regular collections of the moneys deposited in said meters and/or other methods of payments received, and to verify and record the same. It shall also be the duty of such person or persons so designated to remove from the parking meters the locked containers therein containing the coins, currency, lawful money of the United States or other necessary payment method information so deposited or entered in said meters and to deliver such locked containers to the Treasurer, or his/her designee, who shall unlock them, count and record the funds so collected and arrange for the proper deposit of said funds in the appropriate depository as approved by the Borough Council. In addition, said person or persons as designated by the Borough Council shall also verify and record the credit or debit card payment information or other approved payment method by the Parking Authority from the meters with the amount of funds deposited into the appropriate depository, as well as those retained by such Parking Authority approved third parties and to provide such record and accounting to the Treasurer, or his/her designee in the usual manner provided by law.
[Amended 7-16-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-17]
K. 
For purposes of clarification, to the extent the term "coin" and/or "coins" is referenced in this section of the Code as it relates to the deposit of monies in parking meters, the term shall include payments by coins or currency of the United States of America, credit or debit card payments or other payments as determined by the Parking Authority described on the parking meter.
