About Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day
The HPU Hypocrisy of the Day is a photo feature on Hoboken411.com.

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.

You frustrated with the hypocrisy? Caught them on film? Simply email Hoboken411@gmail.com with your photo, location and sorry story!

So you want to be able to ignore the law, and get away with it? So you drove around a town which apparently has a HORRIBLE reputation statewide for barbaric parking restrictions and yet you parked your car and never checked the signs that are every 100 feet or so to see if you were parked legally. And we are supposed to feel bad for you? Really?! Can I offer some advice? If you don’t want to pay a fine, don’t come to hoboken and park illegally. It’s that simple you idiots!!!

I want in on this. I am not a lawyer. Unlike the original poster, I do not have unlimited funds and the ability to take this another step forward. I am a waitress and student. I was unfairly ticketed and booted before 15 minutes of parking in a poorly marked and an absolutely unlit street in Hoboken. It cost me a total of $218 to handle the mess… not to mention the time and gas money it took to take care of the boot. Additionally, my fiancee held a flashlight so I could see the numbers on the boot, and when I had to pull it back quickly, I seriously injured his fingers. How do I handle this injustice with limited health insurance and almost zero time away from work and school? I know what happened last night was wrong, but I feel absolutely powerless. The next two days will especially suck as I spend the holiday weekend working to pay off this ticket rather than spend time with my family.
