Hoboken Traffic Armageddon

12/30/2010:

Do not drive in or around Hoboken NJ

Word to the wise: Don’t even think about trying to drive in Hoboken tonight.

Traffic is backed up on each and every street across town. Angry drivers honking as they crawl around at a snails pace. Many residents blame this nightmare on the Hoboken snow plowing incompetence exhibited by Dawn Zimmer and her administration.

One of the reasons it’s backed up on the south end of town is because Observer Highway wasn’t plowed correctly – and is down to one lane of traffic. Uptown is just as bad – as drivers at 15th Street aren’t letting other cars in from the side streets – and it’s backing up into town. Oh well!

on a similar topic, when can we start parking on the main snow routes. Meaning north side of 3rd and south side of 4th. I just drove by both streets, people parking all over the north side of 3rd, and the south side of 4th was empty. Couldn’t find anything on the city website to clarify. Maybe there is a set rule I am not aware of. Thanks again,

Might be a dumb question but does anyone know when the parking free for all ends? Is it Monday morning? Will the city start ticketing those that don’t obey street sweep signs? I haven’t been able to find anything on the internet confirming either (a) continues parking free for all or (b) gotta start honoring the street sweep signs. Any help would be very appreciated! Obviously hoping I don’t have to move my car tomorrow morning….and sure many others are in the same boat…thanks…

I usually call the Department of Environmental Services at (201) 420-2049 to find out if they’re sweeping or not.

The people that think it’s OK to double park when the roads are one lane wide seriously have mental capacity issues.

Cops did a decent job along Willow this week. Shame the towing was 2 days later than it should have been but for the first time I thought they were pretty fair, went along 3 times announcing people would be towed on the west side unless they moved, then tried to call/knock at the owners properties. The only downside was that they gave 2 hrs notice so if you’re at work you have no chance of getting back.[quote comment=”201546″]Because those are the cops’ friends and relatives.[/quote]

As usual, WT – what the hell are you talking about? Do you wait until you are completely drunk before writing? Or is no waiting time required?[quote comment=”201547″]queens and luckey girl but you were seperated at birth??betcha.Turn zelda over she is done on one side…betcha

At first I thought he was a spunky guy. Now that I’ve read more I think he might not speak the same English you and I do. Or he’s drunk. :mrgreen: [quote comment=”201565″]As usual, WT – what the hell are you talking about? Do you wait until you are completely drunk before writing? Or is no waiting time required?

WT, with reference to entry # 19, the word is, “is.” Not “it.” What the fuck is wrong with you? The “s” and the “t” are three letters and one row apart on the keyboard. You couldn’t fuck that up if you were on heroin. I gotta think that you intentionally write poorly, just because you think it’s cool. There’s really no other excuse.[quote comment=”201580″]honey melon please define what spunk it…truth…

I had to drop my car off at the dealership for some work and they wanted to give me a loaner car. I said hell no, just drive me back to NJ Transit. Best decision ever to not have a car here this week.
