Mismanaged Parking (and lack thereof) in Hoboken, NJ
We get it. In regards to the antiquated “infrastructure” that lays beneath our roads and sidewalks – there comes a time in which cars should be removed in order to facilitate necessary work. Such as water mains, gas lines, and sewerage outlets. It’s a way of life in the city.
the crime syndicate known as the Hoboken Parking Utility is just so bad at managing parking arrangements in town – it’s sickening.
Like the photo above – entire blocks were restricted for parking. Signs plastering every vertical surface. HPU
robbing residents ticketing and towing cars to make way for…. (drum roll)
Work that did NOT happen. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Not one minute of work took place, and was not going to for the rest of the day.
What should be happening is continual updates between the city and whomever is doing the work (PSE&G, United Water, etc.) If at 11am, it is determined that NO work will be done – the city should REMOVE those restrictions (and the signs) to allow residents to park again, and for local businesses to benefit from the nearby parking spaces. Even half a day of “recovered” parking is GOLD.
But will they ever strive to improve? Nah, because they already received money for the permits – as well as for the summonses issued. Why in God’s name would they want to make your life easier? Ha!
Here’s an HPU guy killing rain forests one “no parking” sign at a time. Give him a promotion!
