Fugheddaboutit! Cars Block the Box DAILY in Hoboken
We like going to Jersey City every now and then. Whether it’s for the cheap (all cash) gas station outside the Holland Tunnel, picking up some apartment essentials at Home Depot, or visiting the Hamilton Park area.
But almost every time we try to exit town from the south – the two intersections on Monroe Street between Observer and Newark are always in a state of “clusterfuck.”
They’ve tried “block the box” enforcement to no avail. And especially since they installed that traffic light at Jackson and Newark – the backlog up to Monroe is now the chief offender. Cars in the middle of the intersection, and the worst is cars making turns not allowed in their lane in order to sneak ahead of other cars who abide the directions on the signs.
