Domino’s dominates illegal parking

Hoboken illegal parking champ: Domino’s Pizza

Hoboken411 reader Scott noticed how Domino’s Pizza downtown “must be making a killing,” due to the number of illegally parked delivery cars they had (five).

Poor Hoboken bike lanes were blocked too, but curiously, even the hard-core bikers in town must be afraid of the rain – because no one was using them.

Funny thing is that this is just a block from Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s house – and considering she’s a huge proponent of said bike lanes, you would think that this racket would be shut down ASAP.

Unless, of course, she has an under-the-table deal for “free pizza for your silence…?”

    I live near here and see it all the time. I never really understood why Domino’s doesn’t find somewhere else to locate. It would be cheaper to have the storefront located in a quieter part of town and easier to park all the delivery cars too.

      Do they even need a storefront??? Not sure how many people actually walk in to order.

      I’ve always wondered why many businesses or government buildings don’t move to the western edge of town. There seems to be plenty of room to build over there (and parking is easier). Why put these things in the prime real estate locations? The local government could get a lot of money by selling some of the properties and relocating them to the western edge.[quote comment=”217485″]I live near here and see it all the time.

    Hoboken promotes double parking:

    “Sacs said that currently, the Hoboken Parking Utility enforces double-parking in a “limited fashion.”

    “At the moment, the resources that we have to enforce parking laws do not allow us to put all our effort into one particular violation,” said Sacs.

    Sacs said that double-parking reduces speeding and slows down traffic.

    “For the most part, double-parking creates temporary physical impediments along the roadway that actually contribute to reduced speeding on corridors,” said Sacs. “Our primary concern [with] double-parking is [when it occurs] too close to intersections, or [when it] blocks fire hydrants or bicycle lanes.”

    The illegal parking looks like it happens even overnight… some cars are even parked in the super-forbidden red curb zones.

    Take a look at this photo Scott sent in this morning.. the street isn’t even wet, indicating they’d been there for a while.

    We should see how many “free” pies are delivered to City Hall in exchange for no enforcement.
