HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 5/12/2014
Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – May 12, 2014
Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category, here’s another “monkey-business as usual” spotting submitted by Hoboken resident Jonathan.
As you see these photos time after time – the only healthy reaction you can have is:
“If these parking zones are illegal solely for the safety of drivers and pedestrians – why are only residents and visitors punished, and not the CITY who violates these same rules on a daily basis? Doesn’t that negate the purpose?”
Ah – then as you further contemplate the hypocrisy – you realize that it’s a TOTAL SHAM that the perceived reason is for “safety.”
No. It’s purely for REVENUE (i.e., theft) for and by the city.
A time long ago, a population would not stand for such double standards, and usually they didn’t last this long, or happen so obviously and consistently. But our citizenry cannot be bothered with stopping the theft, they have apps to play with, gluten-free foods to Instagram, and Zumba classes to feel artificially good about.
Created out of need – this section features the blatant hypocrisy in the Hoboken city government. Get this – Parking “laws” were created under the guise that it is either for “safety of residents, drivers and pedestrians,” or to “make parking more fair for law abiding citizens.”
The city, however – VIOLATES those very same laws. The bottom line is THEY DON’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT SAFETY. They just want your MONEY.
