Privileged Moving

An astute reader sent these photos in from his camera phone.

He thinks someone ‘important’ is moving in or out of Hoboken near 109 Grand Street because yesterday the official police “no parking” signs went up. He was aggravated at the fact that they gave only one day notice – but even more so when he saw a moving van pull up.

A local beat cop said it wasn’t the police responsible for the signs but the parking utility. The signs are signed by John Correa. These signs are intended for construction, block parties, etc: things you need a permit for – NOT for someone moving in or out. They do have ‘courtesy’ no parking signs for that.

The same rules should apply for everyone. Not just those that don’t know the right people.

Do you think it’s fair someone gets their car towed because of a moving van?

While a major PITA, what about taking a quick, time/dated pic when you park on the street? Not sure about cell-phone capabilities to document time/date, but I usually have my camera with me anyway.

That way, worst case scenario of a tow w/out proper signage w/48-hrs. notice, you have some recourse to challenge the hefty fines.

I have a construction buisness and get the signs all the time. It would be pretty tough to get anything done without them. This year alone I’ve probably spent close to $3000 on signs. I hate requesting the tow truck, but sometimes its unavoidable. I’ve gotten ticketed and towed a number of times myself for signs that were never there when I parked. Here’s why…. If the HPA post signs 3 days before and in that time someone rips them down, or the wind or rain takes them, they are still enforceable even though there are no signs there. The HPA will put up the signs again as they are towing you.

my opinion is, when you need to move an entire household, you need to move. you need the truck right outside your place, so i think its good that you can get the spots cleared. i was told by police i cannot under any circumstance have a moving truck double parked on the street. i didn’t know i had to get the signs 48 hrs in advance so the parking utility said i could buy the signs and hope people will be courteous and not park there, but the police would not enforce. So i bought the signs, and took my chances. Sure enough, courtesy was not extended to me by my neighbors and the spots outside were taken by cars anyway. my moving truck had to park on a corner, half a block away. i pleaded with the police to pls call the cars’ owners and see if they would move but they said no. warm welcome to the new hood.
