Westfield Police Chief Wayman Violates Motor Vehicle Law

     Westfield Police Chief David Wayman has the luxury of the free use of a town owned vehicle 24 hours a day.  His "company" vehicle, an SUV, is paid for by the Westfield taxpayers including costs for maintenance and repairs, insurance, vehicle registration, and fuel. This "freebie" is worth thousands of dollars a year in savings for Chief Wayman.
     While Wayman primarily drives his "company" vehicle, he does utilize his own personal pickup truck to haul debris to the town dump but refuses to have the vehicle inspected as per state statute.
     The inspection sticker displayed in the windshield of Chief Wayman's personal pickup truck expired years ago while he continues to encourage his own subordinates in the police department to enforce this NJ motor vehicle statute during their patrol duties.
     It appears that Westfield Police Chief David Wayman is "above the law" while preaching "Do as I say and not as I do."

  1. thats nothing new...when he had his jeep that was never inspected

  2. Does he park on public property? If so, where? I would definately call the local PD and insist it be ticketed. If they did not want to do so, I would snap a picture and send it to the Star Ledger.

  3. It's parked at police headquarters on the weekend sometimes.

  4. What color? If I see it there, I will make an issue out of it.

  5. Just another example of his arrogance.

  6. I saw it over the weekend and it's still expired.

  7. How about Daveys numerous criminal acts and civil rights violations he has committed over the years, how come that doesn't get press?

  8. I remember when TT would walk the lot and check on the stickers...also had to show your license from time to time

  9. has the Almighty One gotten his truck inspected or does he continue to think he is above the law?
