As anyone who owns or drives a car in Hoboken knows, parking has become one of the biggest headaches in our mile square city. To ease pressure off this problem, we would like to request that all those who park their cars on Hoboken streets to please be courteous and aware of their fellow parkers. When parking, please do not leave wasted space between your car and those in front or behind, or wasted space between your car and the edge of the yellow lines marking the intersection. This will allow more cars to park on our city streets. While enjoying the sights of Hoboken by driving around for hours looking for parking can be fun, if we all do our part, we can prevent these headaches from forming. Thank you.

Resident Parking Program is enforced Monday through Saturday, 24 hours a day.

Safe Path to School, Safe Paths Around Hoboken

Now that school is back in session, the city is reinforcing its commitment to the safety program it started back in March. The program has been so successful that it has been adopted city-wide. Safe Path to School, Safe Paths Around Hoboken was developed in collaboration with the Mayor, the Police Department, the Fire Department, the Board of Education, and the Parking Utility. In this safety program, the key enforcement areas consist of:

Keeping Our Crosswalks Clear and Safe
Please don't block the crosswalks or the yellow curbs that are painted next to them. This safe distance around the crosswalks enables much better sight for drivers, which creates safer intersections. It also enables emergency vehicles to make turns, which can save lives. Our intersections have been surveyed and the city will strictly enforce these rules and ticket violators in these areas. For example, when there is a dangerous corner with an SUV or other vehicle blocking sight, or if a vehicle does not move from a crosswalk for an extended period of time, it will be towed.

Keeping Our Bus Stops Clear and Accessible
On our narrow streets, the busses tie up traffic, sometimes for blocks. This poses a dangerous traffic problem. These bus stops need to be clear so that residents, visitors, parents, seniors, and children can go about their business safely and without delay. For these reasons, violators will be both ticketed and towed out of bus stops.

Keeping Fire Hydrants Clear
For obvious reasons, violators will be ticketed and towed out of fire hydrant areas. This will be strictly enforced to ensure safety city-wide.

These measures are all being implemented to enhance the safety of our city, as outlined in the Master Plan. We hope that this safety plan creates a safer feeling for every resident, visitor, senior, bike rider, and child that travels the streets of Hoboken.
