Are drivers that afraid of the snow?
New Hoboken Trend: Idiotic Angled Parking
The brutal snowy winter Hoboken has endured brought forth many issues this season. From ineptitude the city administration exhibited when it came to plowing (another example that “learning on the job” is not acceptable with municipal responsibilities), to stroller moms, dog poop and ridiculous
ticketing robbing of hard-working residents – there was certainly no shortage of snow-related incidents.
The next item up is: angled parking on narrow streets.
Apparently, the drivers are so sick of slipping and sliding on the packed snow banks – that they’re afraid to even push the car over the icy surfaces (except for this guy).
Hoboken Police and Fire had to deal with this growing trend all weekend – leaving some streets dangerously narrow – where emergency vehicles would not have been able to pass by safely.
Below is a gallery of just some of the shots (14th Street, Monroe St. and Hudson St.):
It seems the world revolves around each person individually here in Hoboken!
