HOBOKEN - Two state lawmakers have proposed a bill that would tighten the rules concerning the “booting” of vehicles in towns across the state.

The bipartisan legislation is sponsored by Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia (D-33) and Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R-13).

Under the proposed measure, municipalities won’t be able to immobilize your vehicle unless there is an outstanding warrant against it. 

The proposal comes amid an outcry from Hoboken residents over the city’s parking policies. Many say the city’s policies on booting are overly aggressive and harm drivers and businesses.   

The bill, A-3225, is expected to be considered by a legislative committee in the coming weeks.
