Parking lines: where’s the common sense?
One Hoboken resident shows how inept our city is on a regular basis. Here is how a section of “road” (if you want to even call it that) looked prior to getting re-striped recently:
After getting the runaround from city hall…
“After the city repaved our street they repainted the parking lines in front of my condo. Unfortunately, they decided to paint parking lines between my neighbor’s driveway and mine.
Historically, they had painted the entire length of our complex as a driveway. The narrow spot between driveways does not fit even the smallest of compact cars, but that is not preventing people from trying to wedge in and as a result blocking portions of our driveways. It’s become a safety concern because of the visibility issues backing out. To make matters worse we are already subject to double parking due to a nearby school.
I wanted to know if there was a minimum size for a street spot in Hoboken or a way to request the lines removed. I can’t seem to get any answers from the city.”
Here is the area in question today:
I guess they’re on a “line painting” high of some kind.
(Note: This spot could “technically” hold a scooter or motorcycle – which are street-legal vehicles – but there should be some signage that indicates a limitation type – or more “paint” that says “motorcycle only?”).
