I like to urge residents to act on the unfair parking regulation enforcement that goes on in Hoboken. It came to my attention a few weeks ago, when the man who was to do the yearly furnace clean could not park because he had gotten so many tickets and been booted for parking on the “resident only” side of the street. Fortunately I was able to move my car from the other side, provide a space for him, and have my furnace cleaned.

What I did notice, however, is how many contractors and landscapers violate this rule and are never given tickets. They have gone so far as to leave dump trucks parked on resident only sides over the weekend. In this case the parking authority did ask them to move after three phone calls and they were gone the next day. Subsequent calls have not been as successful.

As residents you pay $15 per year for each car for the right to hunt for parking spaces, which private businesses are freely using. Many, myself included, have ended up parking too close to a corner in desperation only to find a hefty ticket on your windshield. I would like to urge all residents who see unfair practices to call the Parking Authority and complain. I feel that if we do it enough out parking rights may be restored and parking regulations will be adhered to.

You can reach the parking authority at 201 653 1921

I’ve seen cops ticket LEGALLY parked cars MANY TIMES and have had them towed. It happened to my sister. When she complained they said “Hey, you want your car back or not? PAY UP!”

I have video of them passing by a car parked ON THE SIDEWALK while they ticketed a car who’s front bummer was just over the yellow line curb from the corner. There are always trucks parked illegally, yet nothing is done about it.. many of the cops grew up there and they seem to have deals in place with their pals and buisnessness they frequent.

I’ve lived in Hoboken for nearly 20 yrs now and I’ve seen some very unstettling changes. It has to be one of NJ’s most corrupt towns. As soon as we find a buyer from our home, we’re out of here and never looking back

I saw 8 cars today with boots on their wheels. They were all non-residents parked on residents only side.

Yeah, zero tolerance, riiiiiight. That must be why there was a van parked at the hydrant in front of my house from 8 AM till 3 PM. Called the cops at noon and they said they would send someone right over. Never did. Owner just moved it on his own, looking like he was in no shape to drive.

Easier to setup than a DUI check. If you listen to the police radio, they are calling in a lot of plates from that area.
