Trucks (still) cause problems in Hoboken
Trucks are a Hoboken problem; something should be done!
Seems that these tractor trailers are getting stuck in Hoboken more and more frequently. Time to fix the problem, designate very specific truck routes, or better yet – restrict the size of trucks that are permitted on sides streets in this city. Just because Hoboken has 50,000 residents – doesn’t mean we need these king size rigs roughing up our streets and cars.
Hoboken411 readers Richard and Amanda sent in photos of the latest incidents to disrupt the mile square – sometimes upwards of an hour or more. Imagine if there was an emergency at the same time?
These took place on Madison & Monroe Streets in the last 24 hours:

Did you know Hoboken had a truck stop?
According to many residents I’ve spoken with – tractor trailers in Hoboken get stuck at this intersection of 9th and Adams Streets all the time. Here’s a photo and message from Hoboken411 reader Chris:
“This has happened two nights in a row. But it happens all the time. Big trucks get stuck on 9th and Adams due to cars parked in no parking zones. But what has made it happen three times in the last week, is the large pile of snow that was plowed onto the street by the town. They can’t get around it and the cops have to come.”
What do you think the solution for this problem is? How to you prevent the big rigs from trying to traverse Hoboken’s narrow streets?
