Selective Hoboken Parking Enforcement

Residents miffed by selective Hoboken parking enforcement in snow

You’ve heard of “selective Hoboken parking enforcement,” haven’t you? We’ve seen it before, whether it’s special treatment handed out to “insiders,” or the Hoboken Parking Utility breaking parking laws to “enforce” them. But what about during the snow? Maybe HPU employees just don’t want to get their hands cold & wet? See what “Mark on Bloomfield” has to say about that:

“So last week, I was unsure whether to move my car – it was in a Thursday spot, hemmed in by snow in 17 degree weather. Surely, the city couldn’t clean streets. I cleaned the snow off my car and left it. I got a ticket. But the cars around me – both piled with snow – did not get tickets. I looked closely. Maybe the enforcement in officer had no where to put the ticket. So it cost me $45 for cleaning off my car. Yeah Zimmer maybe accusing our asinine Governor, but she’s still milking residents with these ridiculous parking policies.”

    I also had a run in with the parking authority. The girl with red hair who has a attitude that all of Hoboken knows, she gave me a ticket for being 3ft into the yellow but yet 3 car had been fully into the yellow. I ran after her and she brushed me off and said call and make a compliant. I see that our Mayor hires anyone with a high school diploma and no brains 👿 .

    es you can not fight selective enforcement in court. That don’t want to see the picture that show every car surrounding you w no ticket. It has to be fought through city council or state assembly.

    The city did make an announcement last Wed via different channels: “Street cleaning rules will be in effect tomorrow, Thurs, Jan 23. Plows will be used instead of sweepers to clear parking lanes of snow.” So it seems they gave fair warning…

      I just received a summons in the mail for a ticket for street cleaning 1/23 (that was never on my car).
      I was parked on 3rd St by McDonalds, when I called to complain they told me
      it was because they were doing snow removal. I passed by the same area on Sunday 2/16,
      3 weeks later & there is no way that they ever even attempted to remove any snow.
      I only hope that they repair the streets with all the money that they are making & not padding their pockets.

    Classy, you at being off subject again? Fair warning to ticketing. The issue is “selective” ticketing.

    • YouStayCl@ssyHoboken says:

      If you want to talk selective ticketing, there are much better stories around town, and real examples of people who get special VIP treatment, daily. Just like there are people who get preferential treatment in deploying and enforcing temporary no-parking signs. The above is more of a one-off story about unfortunate misjudgment but some people who took a gamble and lost.[quote comment=”222508″]Classy, you at being off subject again?
