Curb writing in Hoboken

In Hoboken, maybe we need to explain curbs in writing?

I’ll tell ya – I stumbled upon something interesting recently.

When colors don’t do the trick – why not words?

For one, I noticed some writing on a corner of Washington Street that said “Not a spot.”

My initial thoughts were, “Cool! Instead of confusing fruity yellow, blue and red curbs, why not just put it in plain English that you can’t park here?”

Then I realized as I saw other markings – that it was vendor info for this weekend’s Hoboken Fall Arts & Music Festival. Drat.

But I think this may work – as I spotted another curb marking on Park Ave. – indicting (in plain English) “The curb is here (arrow.)” Maybe this will help stupid parking on the sidewalk tickets?

Who wants to start a petition for written curb advisories?

I have always seen that top photo and assumed it pertained to the numbered stalls/spots for the street fairs held in Washington St.
Though the way some people park around here, I am not sure that even writing on the road would help them.
