HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 7/11/2014
Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – July 11, 2014
Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category….
A typical scene in Hoboken. Minor parking offense (not having the permit, or going over the limit). We’ve already hammered the point that this does NOT help free up parking for the residents “who deserve it,” it only fills city coffers and makes visitors resent the city (thus hurting small businesses).
The parking director recently said that the booting would be curtailed. But that apparently isn’t the case. Collecting that revenue from these draconian “violations” must be more addictive than heroin.
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.
