Hoboken Reverse Angle Parking Posing Problems For Residents

Posted: Updated:
Hoboken, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Some of the folks on Willow Avenue in Hoboken, New Jersey are bent out of shape over new parking rules on the city's street.

“Please do something about this, this is ridiculous, this is dangerous,” one resident complained.

She's talking about the new reverse angle parking spots designated on Willow's busy two-way street that now has both drivers and residents up in arms.

“It's hard to back in. When you want to back in there's only one lane and the people don't want to stop and let you back in,” Hoboken resident Michelle Dubreuil explained.

City Hall says there were 64 vehicle collisions on that two block stretch from 2008 to 2013 and they say that adding these improvements address that. Reverse angle parking may take some getting used to, but city officials call it easier than parallel parking. They add that many cities report fewer parking-related accidents after switching to reverse-angle parking.

However, as far as Hoboken goes, not one resident could be found that approved of the reverse angle parking spots along Willow.

In addition, if you pull in forward into these spots, you'll get written up for it. And Hoboken's never been a town that shies away from writing parking tickets or for putting a boot on your vehicle. So beware!
