Temporary No Parking Sign FAQs

1) What is the purpose of temporary no parking signs?  

Temporary no parking (TNP) signs are used as a means of reserving temporary curbside access in a safe and orderly manner for functions including moving in or out of Hoboken, clearing streets for construction, emergencies, or community events, accommodating high-volume loading activity for special events, staging for home improvement contractors, and more. In densely urbanized areas that permit on-street parking, such as Hoboken, a temporary no parking sign program is essential for public safety and for city life to function. Thousands of cities across the country (including many in New Jersey) that permit on-street parking also have temporary/emergency no parking sign programs.  

2) What are the eligible functions in which I can purchase temporary no parking signs?

TNP signs may be purchased to help safely accommodate moving, construction, special events, dumpsters, television and film production, large deliveries, official City business, and any other purpose which implicates public safety, health or welfare as determined by the Director of Transportation and Parking or his/her designee.  

3) How do I purchase temporary no parking signs?

TNP signs may be purchased through HPU Online or at the HPU customer service window Monday-Friday, 8:00am-4:00pm and Saturdays, 9:00am-1:00pm.  

4) What information do I need to have when purchasing temporary no parking signs?

Purchasers of TNP signs must know the metes and bounds of the curbside space they wish to reserve. The simplest way to do this is provide two street addresses that bracket the desired location of the TNP signs. For example, 122-124 Bloomfield St.  

5) How many days in advance do I need to purchase temporary no parking signs?  

Beginning Monday, July 22, TNP signs for any function other than construction activity, official City business, public safety, or emergencies must be purchased a minimum of eight days in advance (for permit parking zones) in person at the HPU customer service window or a minimum of 10 days in advance through HPU Online so that they can be posted by HPU seven days before the TNP signs go into effect. TNP signs for construction activity and official City business must be purchased a minimum of three days in advance (for permit parking zones) at the HPU customer service window or seven days in advance through HPU online. TNP signs for public safety purposes or emergencies may be posted without prior notice when there is an imminent need to protect the health, safety, or general welfare of the community.  

6) What is the minimum number of temporary no parking signs that I can purchase per transaction?  

There is a two-sign minimum for all TNP sign transactions.  

7) How many feet of curbside space does each TNP sign cover?

Each posted TNP sign covers a distance of approximately 18 feet.

8) Who is responsible for posting TNP signs?

HPU is responsible for posting all TNP signs. After a customer purchases a TNP sign through HPU Online or at the HPU customer service window, a parking enforcement officer will be responsible for posting that customer's TNP signs.  

9) Who is responsible for removing TNP signs after they expire?

Purchasers of TNP signs are responsible for removing their TNP signs after they expire. TNP sign purchasers who do not remove their TNP signs within two hours of the expiration of their TNP signs may be served with a $45 fine per TNP sign.  

10) Is there a way to find out where temporary no parking signs are posted in Hoboken?

Yes, please visit https://hpuvp.hobokennj.gov/parking for a real-time map of all posted TNP signs and all purchased TNP signs up to 14 days in advance.  

11) Can TNP signs be purchased for private property?  

No, TNP signs may not be purchased for use on private property.  

12) Do TNP signs exempt vehicles from moving for street cleaning?   

No, street cleaning regulations supersede temporary no parking regulations. For example, if TNP signs are purchased for moving during a window of time that overlaps with street cleaning, the purchaser must ensure that their moving truck is not parked in front of the temporary no parking sign during a time that street cleaning is in effect. To avoid street cleaning/temporary no parking conflicts, it is recommended that customers check the City's street cleaning schedule (https://www.hobokennj.gov/resources/street-cleaning-schedule) before purchasing TNP signs.  

13) Can I purchase TNP signs for my personal vehicle?  

TNP signs are intended for reserving access for commercial vehicles. Non-commercial vehicles may be parked in temporary no parking zones only after approval from the Director of Transportation and Parking or his/her designee.  

14) What is the process I need to go through to purchase TNP signs for dumpsters?  

Contractors/individuals requesting TNP signs for a dumpster must have a permit from the City Engineer with them at the time of purchase. The address on the dumpster permit and address(es) of the TNP signs must match exactly, especially on narrow streets (typically numbered – 1st St, 2nd St, 3rd St, etc.). The purchaser of TNP signs for dumpsters may be required to also purchase TNP signs across the street from the dumpster location in order to ensure adequate right-of-way for emergency vehicles to pass. A maximum of three TNP signs may be purchased per dumpster location. Please note that TNP signs are not provided for dumpsters on weekends.  

15) What happens if I travel and a temporary no parking sign is posted next to my vehicle after I leave Hoboken?

The Hoboken Parking Utility offers steeply discounted "vacation parking" ($5/day) to resident permit holders in Garage B for up to 14 days per calendar year. Taking advantage of vacation parking while you're out of town guarantees that your vehicle will not be towed because of a temporary or emergency parking regulation.  

16) What do I do if I purchase TNP signs and during the window of time that they are active the parking spaces are occupied by another vehicle?

Please call HPU dispatch at 201-653-1919 (option 2) and a parking enforcement officer will be dispatched to the scene as soon as possible to initiate a tow of the illegally parked vehicle.  

17) Who do I contact if I see expired TNP signs still posted?

Please call HPU dispatch at 201-653-1919 (option 2) and action will be taken to remove the expired TNP signs.  

18) What happens if TNP signs I purchased are damaged before they are become active?

Please call HPU dispatch at 201-653-1919 (option 2) as soon as you notice that the TNP signs have been damaged so that a parking enforcement officer can repost the TNP signs.
