QotD: Worst intersections in Hoboken?

Hoboken has some bad intersections – what are the worst?

Hoboken411 reader “OlderThanGod” suggested today’s Hoboken Question of the Day.

“Hoboken traffic accidents – which is the most dangerous intersection in Hoboken? How long has it been a problem? Why has the city ignored the problem? Accidents at intersections are almost always the result of a design flaw. So who should we sue?

My vote for the worst intersection is – 16th Street and Park Avenue. All it requires to fix it is a sign @ $100 – NO LEFT TURN from 16th Street on to Park Ave going North and over the bridge.”

Some other intersections that are bad include both Bloomfield at Newark and 1st Streets. This is right next to city hall, and there are accidents here every week due to improperly parked vehicles, and bad parking enforcement by HPU.

What do you think is the worst Hoboken intersection?

      15th and Hudson is horrible. I can’t tell you how many times I have been driving east on 15th street past Hudson to and people refuse to stop at that stop sign. There is going to be a horrible accident there one day.[quote comment=”208166″]By the Hoboken Beer & soda outlet. Always jammed with morons turning from the wrong lane.[/quote]

        THANK YOU.

        15th & Hudson is absolutely horrible if you’re heading east (towards NYC for those with directional issues). At best, people come to a rolling stop; at worst, they blast through the STOP sign with a hand firmly on their horn.[quote comment=”208170″]15th and Hudson is horrible.

    Hoboken appears to be a design flaw…..Everyone goes through Stop Signs & Nobody Stops at the Stop signs they are supposed to…..Maybe society has the design flaw & needs to get back to the basics……..
