Broken Parking Meters
This always bugged me. Because a parking meter is broken, cities (not just Hoboken) prohibit you from parking there because they cannot collect their 25 cents. I’m sure there is some “logistical” (people hate that word) reason for it (to avoid argument in court if the meter is fixed while a car is parked there).
Can’t they replace these with a different system? Like a “park at your own risk” type bag? If meter is fixed while parked here, “you have 60 minutes to put money in the meter” or face summons? Why waste a valuable spot for a few quarters?
