Sign overload on Newark St.
Here’s a simple example more than seven months after this “death row” of signs was installed on Newark Street…
This bus went back and forth for 5 minutes as it tried to negotiate this corner – due to a illegally parked car on the northwest part of the intersection. However if this crazy row of excessive signs wasn’t there, the bus could have slightly traversed the curb to make the turn – instead, there was a long line of angry parked cars behind him….

This are of Hoboken is beginning to look like a demented carnival.
Here’s what one Hoboken411 reader had to say:
“Why is it so hard for this city NOT to execute a simple sign install without looking like 5th grade idiots?
Seriously, who is in charge of making these decisions and what are their qualifications? Also, I had predicted that the installation of the traffic light on Hudson/Newark would result in a much more dangerous situation as drivers attempt to catch the yellow light. Yes, I see it every day now. They probably reach 40mph now as they speed up heading towards the SINGLE MOST ACTIVE PEDESTRIAN CROSSING in all of Hoboken. Great job city hall, thanks! Sad that the HPD cannot control speeding traffic right in front of police HQ!”
