Still no speedbumps, still dangerous
“The intersection at 13th and Hudson is sick. Drivers ignore the hardly visible pedestrian right of way sign, and the lack of speedbumps allows cars to blaze by at 50mph. I’m getting sick and tired of the lack of responsiveness from town hall. I’ve sent messages with zero response. If our elected, taxpayer funded politicians don’t care about the quality of life in Hoboken, maybe that new Police Chief Falco could intervene? He’s the only one that seems to be making progress in town. Perhaps a daily speed trap? Either way, I want to see those speedbumps come back NOW. It’s dangerous for our children and senior citizens.“

Hudson Street Speedway
Not one, but several readers emailed Hoboken411 wondering what happened to the speed bumps and pedestrian crosswalk signs that were installed at the intersection of 13th and Hudson Streets.
As you might know, this is a rather busy intersection, where commuters walk to and from the ferry, and local residents do much of their shopping. I witnessed it first hand, how cars were literally going at highway speeds down the road.
My suspicion is that this is part of the street paving that’s scheduled for this year – however, no attempt was made by the city to inform residents of the schedule, and expected completion date, etc. As it stands now – the street is hazardous to cross.
