Another Snow Emergency

The City has declared a snow emergency beginning Tuesday, February 1, at 8 p.m. and ending Thursday, February 3, at 8 p.m. Vehicles should remain parked on the odd side of the street until 8 p.m. tonight, at which time they must be moved to the even side of the street, where they should remain for 24 hours, until 8 p.m. on Wednesday. Beginning at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, vehicles should be moved to the odd side of the side of the street.

Common Council President Don Moore warns that the fine for parking on the wrong side of the street during a snow emergency is $25. An additional administrative fee of $25 will be charged if the owner moves the vehicle after a tow truck has arrived. Cars can be towed at any time from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m., the period during which DPW carries out snow removal.

For more information, check the City of Hudson website.


  1. I would also note that they append an additional 10 dollar ticket for parking in a no parking zone, so its really 35 dollars. Oye. Snow Emergencies in Hudson NY: Gross misinformation coupled with a ticketing blitz, followed by our boys in blue spending more time monitoring the tow trucks making a gold coin for the city then the accidents the snow actually causes!

    While we're at it, lets Abolish alternate side parking in Hudson and smash the regressive curb taxation without representation. For alternate street parking alone, over two hundred thousand dollars a year is budgeted to be squeezed from your pocket without any debate.

    Revenue masquerading as Regulation.

    These are taxes, not tickets. For what? For the three times a year they drive that obnoxiously loud and ineffective street cleaner? No. Its for the money honey. Enough is Enough.

  2. Check out the NEW rules for snow emergency parking stapled to the orange sticks.

    It's all phrased - in RED - NO this and NO that -
    instead of simply saying do park on this side during these days and hours and do park on the other side blah blah blah

    it's all so f'ing confusing as we tried to figure out the NO's vs do you read it from left to right or top to bottom???

    This communication - as all others - is retarded and a fine opportunity for confusion = fill those coffers to overflowing !!!

  3. During the last storm, I got one of those $25 fines, followed 2 minutes later by the $10 one to add insult to injury. I've worked in Hudson over 25 years, yet drove around Warren twice trying to understand that new sign. I ended up "following the pack" & parked where others were, only to come out later to those two fines. Grrr.
