City Parking Offenders: 5/1/2014

Hoboken City Parking Offenders at 2nd & Bloomfield

Continuing the ongoing Hoboken City Parking Offenders category – here is a Hoboken Fire Department SUV. This “utility” vehicle is doing what property-taxpayer funded vehicles do best: Park illegally (and dangerously) in the red curb zone.

The Jeep was clearly not on an emergency call (unless you call “stomach grumbling” a “personal” emergency). So once again, how do the “HFD” markings on this SUV make it less dangerous than if it was your car?

It doesn’t – and should carry the same “punishment” that you or I would receive. Maybe out of the offenders paycheck? Or our “competent” Mayor’s paycheck?

About Hoboken Parking: City Offender Zone

The City Offender Zone feature on Hoboken411 was created over six years ago in order to build a historical collection of ridiculous parking circumstances that are somehow connected with the city of Hoboken. Whether it’s Hoboken council people who think they’re “above the law,” city programs that are abused or misused, or just plain hypocrisy in your face.

You see any city parking offenders you want to make public? Send Hoboken411 an email with photo, description and how you’d like to be credited (if at all.)

The traffic light in front of City Hall heading south has an unmistakable sign reading NO TURN ON RED. This sign evidently means NOTHING to the HPU employees driving vehicles. Seen two of them racing around this corner to go down Newark only to again park illegally on the west side of Newark off Bloomfield. All this right under Dawn Zimnuts window. This is a dangerous intersection where seniors make trips to cvs pharmacy. These vehicles ignore this sign on a daily basis.

The driver of a City Parking Utility vehicle almost hit me when he did not yield the right of way when I was already crossing in the intersection. These same PU employees will be giving testimony when you fight a ticket. Should the judge be trusting the testimony of a HPU employee who regularly breaks the law?

I see a couple cars ‘shortening the crossing distance’ by a combined 10+ feet!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
