Hoboken issues handicap parking spots – no one parks there
Recently – the city of Hoboken issued a dedicated handicap parking spot along Hudson Street uptown. Permit #243 for license plate HW8846.
Several residents in the area are a bit miffed. Because they say that this spot – for the past six weeks – has remained completely unoccupied with the exception of just a few hours during one single day since it was implemented.
People don’t know how or why a spot could be reserved for someone who doesn’t regularly use it. Some think it might be for a disabled visitor or family member, while others think the car is garaged somewhere else. They generally think it’s a complete waste of a perfectly good spot.
Do you think some minimum conditions should be required before issuing handicap spots?
