Hoboken Cyprus! Street cleaning tickets

This is Hoboken Cyprus – city tickets for sweeper – doesn’t sweep

When a government of any kind takes money for no reason (unconscionable taxes, fees, levies) most people consider it theft.

I’m sure you’ve heard – people with bank accounts in Cyprus woke up this week to news that money might be skimmed from their accounts to fund bank bailouts. This might also be happening now in New Zealand and Spain now as well.

This week, Hoboken411 reader Arseny said that the city summonsed so many cars along Clinton Street – and DID NOT SWEEP THE ROADS! So welcome to Hoboken Cyprus!

Hoboken Cyprus takes money from residents for non street cleaning after snow - Hoboken Cyprus! Street cleaning tickets

Residents nicked – Hertz on Demand cars skate free

“Check this out. After the snow fall literally every car on Clinton Street got ticketed ($45) at 9am and Hoboken parking authority claims they are “cleaning the streets.”

They earn around $900 per block (20 cars at $45) so they brought in around $10,000 of revenue just from Clinton Street! And the street isn’t even cleaned!

Mind you the Hertz on Demand cars don’t get a ticket and are not affected by street cleaning (nor are they clean).”

Question: Has anyone gotten a sweeper ticket – even though no street cleaning happened – and successfully beat it in court? Shouldn’t it be mandatory that the sweeper actually come in order to validate the violation?

I always thought cars needed to be moved regardless of weather. If there is snow on the ground, moving the car allows the plows to come through and clear right up to the curb. So you should move regardless. Parking in this town stinks, but if you break the rules you get ticketed. Don’t cry about it.

I had this happen to my car (parked on Newark & Adams) two winters ago after a huge blizzard when my car was literally covered in snow. I fought the ticket and had it dismissed. BUT, I had to pay the court costs, which were around $30. The city wins either way.

Ever think that maybe they can’t sweep unless people move their cars?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
