Double Parking Crackdown!

You better get used to walking further!

According to communications heard over the Hoboken411 Live Police and Action Channel tonight – The HPD is seriously cracking down on ALL double-parkers in ALL districts citywide.

All patrol officers were advised to ticket AND tow any and all vehicles that are double parked, as ordered by the commanding officer in charge.

My opinion is that it could be one or more of the following:

  • They finally want to put an end to nonsensical driving conditions
  • A desperate effort to massively increase police summons revenue for the city
  • Possible weather related safety concerns
  • To help out the local parking garages

They’re also cracking down on delivery trucks, moving trucks and more. If you’re a regular listener to the Police Scanner – you can obviously hear an overwhelming vigilance in all the officers voices. It appears they had a “pep rally” for this new crackdown – so be advised if you even just want to pick up your dry cleaning – you’re not safe. They don’t even seem to be issuing simple warnings at this time.

No idea whether this is just a temporary situation or not. Don’t say I didn’t warn you all!

Please – let’s not be naive – I will agree with some posters about how safe the city is for the most part – we should be thankful there aren’t gangs – although apparently the bloods are out and about town… Police and fireman are just all bloody gang members – get a clue. They will think nothing of bustin’ trouble makers because they have been given free reign to do so. Is this a bad thing? For the most part no, we like our city to be free of Sh&theads. But try to call a cop out and they will stage a fight and next thing you know your thrown to the ground and hauled off to the station! The only thing to do is befriend the the thugs. And if your a chick it doesn’t hurt to show a little skin! In over a decade of living in this sq mile the approx. 3 occassions I have called them they were more a hindrance than a help. I am a law abiding citizen – however, as one poster admitted, I too park at the corner or hydrant to unload. I say ticket all the offenders you can – it’s a revenue stream – the city needs the money. And if I get a ticket once in a while, so be it – it is better then paying 250+ for a parking spot. 🙂 So, I guess you can say I have a love hate relationship for cops… Hey,… Read more »

I meant to post this the other day but forgot…I was walking to hoboken hot bagels the other morning when there were the usual string of double parked cars all along Washington. I saw a cop car pull up behind the first double parked car and I thought he was going to flash his lights and get the cars moving. Instead the 2 cops got out of the car and walked into the bagel store right ahead of me. Guess breakfast was more important. 😕

Good catch only got them to move. Do you actually think any of the old school Knights are going to be given tickets?

Oh and my dad was a Knight nothing against them but seriously in this town they should not have their own rules.

[quote comment=”132059″]OMG!! For the FIRST time the HPD actually did something about the double parking on Adams between 1st & 2nd. They actually got one car to move and then went into the Knights to the the THREE double parkers in front of the Knights to move their cars. I was soo shocked I just stood there and stared. I’ll bet past Grand Knight John was not too happy.[/quote]

got them to move & issued tickets? or just got them to move?
