Is the shore a good hotspot all hours, or only on weekends?
I'm headed down this week for a couple days, and thinking of going online for those in between beach/boardwalk down time's.
I'm going to Ortley beach. Also headed to manasquan a few times next month.
On July 4th weekend i was Manasquan numerous times (Osprey, Legguts) with no probs with copsIf you're going to be down in Ortley, you might see some early and mid-evening action for people going out to dinner or starting off a night of drinking in Seaside or Point Beach. But really, the peak times down there are more in line with the typical 9pm-3am drinking crowds. The good thing is the fares are significantly higher than in the rest of Jersey, so it can't hurt to just go online for an hour or two if you're bored.
During the week, though, it's probably pretty dead.
I would absolutely stay away from driving in Manasquan though. As far as I've heard, the cops there are turning Uber into a major money-maker, ticketing anyone they catch with Illegal Omnibus tickets and occasionally towing cars.
If someone has a real problem, not just heard that someone has, so there is a problem, and you can be the next. Our famous Mike had few stories for tickets, threatening and some other things. Last summer some towns had an order to look for uber drivers and ticket them. I have been pulled over too, because they saw the app open. I had no pax, the officer asked if I am uber, I said yes I have an account with them. I have OL plates and I didn't fall in any ticket rewards category, so they let me go. I didn't see anything like that yet.On July 4th weekend i was Manasquan numerous times (Osprey, Legguts) with no probs with cops
