Parking Rules Resume Monday Nov. 19, Damaged Cars Must be Towed
If your car was damaged in the flood it must be towed by Monday Nov. 19.
For one more week, enforcement of permit parking regulations and alternate side parking for street cleaning will remain suspended, according to an announcement from the city.
Partial enforcement resumes on Tuesday at 12:01 a.m., the city announced. If you park east of Bloomfield Street, you'll have to feed the meter starting Tuesday.
All other non-permit and non-street cleaning parking enforcement is in effect startin Tuesday. (For example: parking too close to a crosswalk, stop sign, fire hyrdrant, in a bus stop, driveway, car-sharing space, handicapped space, temporary "No Parking" signs, and parking on the sidewalk.)
Any vehicle that was stranded and damaged in the flood caused by Sandy will have to be towed by Monday Nov. 19. A car without plates will be considered abandoned.

For those taking a Hoboken taxi to a tow yard, the City is now offsetting the full cost of the fare, so long as a receipt is provided by the taxi driver. The taxi fare must be paid to the taxi driver, after which a receipt should be requested. The receipt must indicate the date, time, cost, taxi number and driver name. The City will then deduct the fare amount from the towing fee after a receipt has been provided to the tow yard contractor. Regular taxi fares to the four towing companies are: Mile Square Towing: $5, John's Main Auto Body: $17, Logan Towing: $21, Truchan Brothers: $23.
