Why are some cars just ignored?

Car occupies parking space in Hoboken – yet no action?

unticketed cars in Hoboken NJ take up parking spots - Why are some cars just ignored?You’ve seen this before in Hoboken, where an abandoned car takes up a valuable parking spot, and for whatever reason it’s not towed, ticketed or managed in any way.

One Hoboken411 reader had this to say about it:

“There has been a car parked at the back of Vezzetti Way for literally months! It’s absolutely filthy all around it because it’s never moved for street cleaning, yet I’ve never once seen a ticket on it. How has this car not been towed?! It’s starting to irritate me because this person has literally been monopolizing a space for months with seemingly no penalty.

I’m sick of looking at this car and all its filth. I submitted a complaint to the city, but yet street cleaning days go by with no action…”

The city must not care whether this a precious parking spot since the vehicle has remained (probably since Hurricane Sandy). However, tell that to the residents that may live nearby and covet *any* available space.

My guess it’s someone connected somehow, because that wacky Scooby Doo van gets like a dozen tickets a month it seems.

Why do you think this beat up car isn’t just towed away so others can use the parking spot?

Sorry, posted too soon… Smartphone! Anyway, it’s parked in one of the few spots that does not have street cleaning rules. I doubt it’s ever going to be towed away

I live in the shipyard and during Sandy I watched a car flood and die. It has been parked in the same spot since the hurricane. And there is sill condensation and mud inside the car. It’s parked in one of the few spots tha

For the same reason that the cars with PBA shields in the windows get to double parkfor hours at time.

You should have more important things to worry about than other peoples parking habits.

We do have more to worry about. Like the generations-old corruption, favoritism, back scratching, councilmen parking in cross walks, etc that is endemic to Hoboken. This is probably another example.
