New Jersey state law previously prohibited parking within 25 feet of intersections and 50 feet from stop signs on inbound street sections, however a recent change lets municipalities create parking closer to intersections and stop signs when school is not in session.

As a result, the Hoboken City Council recently amended the City Code to establish “Extended Parking Zones,” permitting residents to park 15 feet from crosswalks on “outbound” street segments and 25 feet from crosswalks on “inbound” street segments during certain times. “Outbound” and “inbound” street segments are the portions of the street that permit a vehicle to drive away from and towards an intersection, respectively.

Parking in “Extended Parking Zones” is not permitted between the hours of 7am and 7pm on days when public schools are in session. To maintain clearance for emergency response vehicles, any vehicle parked closer than 15 feet from a crosswalk is subject to summons and towing if it is determined that it could impact emergency response times. Please refer to the diagram below for examples of parking that is permitted and not permitted (Click here to download a pdf version of the Extended Parking Zone diagram). The complete language from the City code is also included below.

Parking near corners along inbound legs blocks visibility between pedestrians, bicyclists, and oncoming vehicles, posing a serious risk to all.

  • Outbound Leg: The roadway segment connected to an intersection, or portion thereof, that permits a vehicle to be driven away from an intersection in accordance with the legally established direction of traffic.
  • Travel Lane: The section of a roadway’s width that is intended to conduct the flow of moving vehicular traffic.
  • Parking Lane: The section of a roadway’s width, typically no fewer than 7.5 feet, located between a Travel Lane and a curb that is reserved for on-street parking, where designated, and does not interfere with the safe and efficient flow of moving vehicular traffic in a Travel Lane.
  • Crosswalk: That part of a roadway at an intersection, either marked or unmarked existing at each approach of every roadway intersection, included within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the roadway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the shoulder, or, if none, from the edges of the roadway; also, any portion of a roadway at an intersection or elsewhere, including mid-block crossings, distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by lines or other marking on the surface.190-54: Regulations for Extended Parking Zones

A.
