Street Cleaning Thievery?
City ignoring street sign hours for profit?
The street signs on the east side of Washington Street say sweeper hours are 8-9am. One Hoboken411 reader witnessed summonses being issued AFTER that time period:
“I was walking past the Elks Club at exactly 9am (per Verizon Wireless time) today when I saw the sweeper coming up Washington, with the Parking Authority mini-truck ticketing these 2 cars. The sign says no parking 8-9am on that side of Washington.
Generally, once the sweeper passes, you can park there with no problem and it’s usually early in the hour (eg Garden St by 10th is usually plowed by 2:10pm every Monday during the 2-3 no parking hour, and the block is filled up by 2:30).
For those times the sweeper is late, there shouldn’t be any ticketing. But this is a heads up anyway — everyone MAKE SURE the sweeper passed before you park in your regular spot.
The city apparently needs your holiday dough!”
