You could be right, in the last many months haven't you noticed the influx of Penna Plates in our area, and they are not visiting. Just take a ride up and down James Street and Walnut Street and look thru the Apartments in our area. Even if they are from this area, isn't it the law that plates have to be changed to NJ plates after a certain amount of time, or is that also a suggestion like many other laws.

PA Plates in neighborhoods usually means drug deals.

PA plates and living in NJ usually means that their insurance(if any) is so much lower than a NJ resident..My neighbor played that trick for years and years..

Those illegals never have insurance

I noticed the same thing and when I notified the state they did not care and would do nothing about it even when I told of people in my neighborhood who had lived there for years, but still had out of state plates.

So wait, we know no more than what we read from what they have reported. Right… The readers decided that Illegal aliens from PA were the ones chased down Rt 37…. They also have invaded James Street and Walnut Street. So were to look through peoples homes and find WHAT? PA Plates in neighborhoods usually means drug deals….. Well you guys should work for the procurators’ office. YOU’RE GOOD….LMAO…..ô¿Ô…..

PS.....Check your car insurance policies and make sure you have "under-insured/un-insured coverage and the coverage is high. Chances are you will eventually be hit by one of these illegal criminals and an accident can financially cripple you.

Well obviously we have Amish in Toms River. Obama personally put them here, and now he's giving them jobs? We need to get our guns and get them out of here, because next thing you know theyre going to start selling quilts on the corner, and our tax dollars are going to pay for apple butter busts!
