How many double parkers?
[Reminiscing Hoboken411’s Five Year Anniversary…]
Will double parking ever improve in Hoboken?
Shot this video experiment a few years ago – do you think double parking has gotten worse or better? Perhaps if we had more residential-only parking garages, things would improve.
How many double parkers are there in Hoboken?
I always wondered how many cars were double parked in Hoboken at a given point in time. Unless you have satellite surveillance technology, it’s kind of hard to figure out.
So yesterday, I drove up and down various streets in town to see what I could whip together on video. Did the major streets (Wash, Bloom, Hudson, Willow, and parts of a few others). This footage is from between 2:15 – 2:45pm.
I sort of screwed up the “count” of how many.. but it was close to 80 double parked cars driven by in just half an hour. And it was mid-day during the week! Some of the hot spots (like by Fiore’s) were oddly missing the usual suspects. Other people even double parked when there were many available spots nearby!
No wonder it’s an ongoing problem, there are just too many of them to handle!
