Hoboken parking is dangerous!
Are there any “safe” parking spots left in town?
The hits keep on coming
Here is another cautionary tale of how parking your car on a Hoboken street can lead to it’s early demise.
Imagine getting ready for dinner and hearing a tremendous crash outside your home. You look out the window to find a bulbous ambulance has just rammed your precious fuel-efficient Honda. Damnit!
That was the scene on Park Avenue yesterday evening when an Amb-U-Care
(or as Hoboken Police Dispatchers call “AmCare”) driver rammed the parked Accord, jamming it into the curb and the car in front of it. The impact totaled the little Honda, but luckily no injuries were reported. The ambulance had apparently just turned on to Park from Observer (at probably a pretty high rate of speed for the area) when an attempt to squeeze in between a Fresh Direct truck and parked cars turned into this mess. Something to think twice about next time you try to get into your car on a crowded Hoboken street. The driver was overheard to have said he “lost his brakes”. Riiiiight.
