Parking ticket onslaught continues

Hoboken now issuing tickets for legal parking spots

Hoboken411 reader Suzette brought the latest HPU fiasco to our attention this past weekend – tickets in loading zones after hours.

“I’ve been an avid reader of Hoboken 411 since I moved to Hoboken over a year ago. I can say that some of the things HPU tickets for is unfair but this one has made the list for absolutely ridiculous!

In the 15 months I’ve lived in Hoboken, I have parked in the loading zone on 1st & Park over the weekends and after 6 pm without worry of ticketing. This morning I was greeted by a ticket on both my car and the vehicle parked behind me in the two space loading zone that is ONLY prohibited M-F from 8am-6pm. I was parked there from 6 pm last night to this morning and was not ticketed until 9:18 in the morning! A sure sign that some HPU associates are ticketing unfairly. If I were parking without a meter payment I would have surely received a ticket last night.

This department is out of line and assumes that if they give a minimal fee of $30 people will just shut up and pay up!”

I honestly just view tickets like this as payback for the 10 times I parked illegally and didnt get a ticket.

The city should have a process for administrative review of parking ticket disputes.. it’s commonplace for PEOs to commit errors–they’re human after all–and there is a disproportionate penalty assigned to the person who has to show up in court to defend themselves vs. a bogus summons. The review should be conducted outside of HPU, for obvious reasons.

Ok, that would mean she just didnt write this clearly. It doesn’t mention over what night she parked her car in that spot. If it was a friday night and the ticket was issued saturday morning then the HPU has move to be embarassed about. This will never end until heads start rolling, and i would start with people on the street.

I think the point is she got the ticket on the weekend, not M-F 8-6pm.

I also got a parking ticket while legally parked in a loading zone. I took pictures and fought it in court, and the ticket got tossed out. It just took about 2 hours of sitting in the court room.[quote comment=”214207″]I think the point is she got the ticket on the weekend, not M-F 8-6pm.[/quote]

Let me get this straight. No parking from 8am until 6pm and you received a ticket at 9:18am? So what is the issue? You were parked illegally. Stop complaining.
