Strollers clog sidewalks

Should permits be required to park strollers in Hoboken?

First off – most people I know (who are awake), don’t really approve of the majority of “permits” required to live your daily lives in any city. They consider them nothing more that “hidden taxes” and simply just redirect money from people to the various (and bloated) government agencies – and don’t necessarily add any value to this world.

But seeing how practically everything in Hoboken demands permits (parking, sidewalk cafes, dogs, etc.) – why not just add these monstrosities to the list? Now that baby strollers approaching the size of hybrid cars, they look like they’re becoming nuisances when gathered en masse, sort of like at this daycare facility uptown. The stroller SUV’s plus the construction scaffolding make the path narrow, and cause disruptions. Shouldn’t all of these facilities be required to have room inside for them?

    Good grief…more with the strollers.

    Look, those of us who get it, make the effort to be considerate. Those parents who don’t–putting these stories on the site is doing nothing. They aren’t considerate, and will continue to be the same self-serving entitled brats that they were raised to be. Posting these stories does nothing, and requiring permits? Really? You would have more luck pursuing business to post no stroller policies.

      That is a cogent, well-reasoned point.

    We get it you hate strollers.

    Guess what, the same type of people who are inconsiderate about their strollers, are the same type that are inconsiderate about their dogs, their loud music, smoking, double parking.

    They care about no one other than themselves. They are even sometimes caught complaining about someone be inconsiderate in a different way, the flip side of their own coin. Parents that hate dog owners. Dog owners that hate parents.

    It is all about them.

    I would much rather deal with strollers than the obnoxious dog owners and their dog’s “business” (on the floor or tossed over a fence missing the garbage can).

    Have them towed & removed to the impound….I bet a hefty ticket would stop them from doing it…….Just like random bikes chained to town property, gone!
