Fire Zone Blockers at Hudson Tea

10/26/2009:

Today’s photo gallery submission from Hoboken411 reader bmacqueens is not only a photo of the day post, but also an offenders on film entry as well!

Why even bother painting the curb yellow?

“Here’s some new parking violations for you. This is the traffic circle in front of the Hudson Tea Building.

Mind you — this entire place is a fire zone, as marked by the yellow curb. Yet, every weekend, this place is parked up like this all afternoon long. It seems like a handful of cars are being honest, like the guy with the luggage cart (unloading) and the one with the blinking hazards. However, most of them seem to just park … and park. Realtors? Too lazy to park honestly? Taking advantage of the (non-enforcement) system?

Yes — this is the FIRE ZONE for an apartment complex with hundreds of apartments.

So, what’s the answer? Ticket the hell out of all of these people? Tow them? Or just let them park like this every weekend?”

I live there and it’s like that day and night. The only time it’s empty is after 1am. If people need to unload their cars or run up to their condo real quick, what’s the big deal? I have seen the HPD giving out tickets, but it’s rare. I have more of a problem with the constant traffic on 15th, people use it as a short-cut and drive like animals down it.

15th Street is now a public thoroughfare so people can legally use it as they please.

maybe they got some pull in town and don’t get tickets. This is life, get used to it.

Either those snooty little drivers think their life is a fire emergency, or they perhaps are waiting for valet service.

Speaking of fire zone blockers, this past weekend, someone parked in the fire zone in front of the hydrant – but wait it gets worst – then someone else double parked by the illegally parked car blocking the fire zone and hydrant.
