Hoboken officials tow cars in effort to remove snow

HOBOKEN - Hoboken officials say the massive snow accumulations we've seen so far have forced cars away from the curb and into the street where they are getting in the way of traffic.

Hoboken City Spokesperson Juan Melli explains that it's important that the streets are cleared. In order to clear the streets, Hoboken police say they towed 15 cars just this morning.

Melli says drivers are given plenty of warning from the signs posted on designated streets in advance of the plowing to the courtesy calls placed to permit parking holders, advising them about the pending towing operations. Towed cars are brought to an impound lot on the other side of town. Residents must get a letter of release from police before they can get their cars back.
