“No Parking” sign invasion

Why so many “no parking” regulations in Hoboken?

Hoboken411 reader Amber had a headache of a time the other day – and recounts her experiences with parking in Hoboken.

“I know that parking is ALWAYS going to be bad in Hoboken… but I live near 12th & Bloomfield and this morning I had to move my car for street cleaning (I had it parked on Hudson) and it took me 25 minutes just to find a spot within an 8 block radius…. MOSTLY because of the “No Parking” signs… due to all of the construction going on in this area. I was so frustrated but I finally found a parking spot further down on Bloomfield… and as I started walking to the PATH, I noticed that MOST of the “No Parking” signs were OUTDATED…..

Hoboken NJ Parking Utility signs expired Bloomfield Street

Most were from last week ending Friday May 13… I saw at least 4 of them alone on the block between 10th & 11th on Bloomfield on my way home…. I just called the parking authority to ask them what the rule was for taking down the outdated signs and apparently, their office is in charge of taking down all outdated signs…. and I told them which blocks I saw them on. HOW IRRITATING!

You can’t always read those signs when you are in your car trying to park! You just ASSUME that the signs are recent…. and I KNOW I saw more on Garden Street that were outdated. It would be interesting to see how many signs there are out there right now that are outdated…. especially with all of the construction going on just on Bloomfield St…. these “No Parking” signs are getting a little EXCESSIVE.

Maybe part of the parking solution in Hoboken is to NOT release so many “No Parking” signs????”

If you can’t read the sign just half-ass park there. Get out read the sign and if you have to move your car just move it. A little due dilligence and 2 minutes of time can save you more in the long run.

I think Ian Sacs is too busy with legal problems to effectively run the parking utility.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
