Blind person crosswalk assistance
Not sure how many have you have noticed the “physically challenged” crosswalk equipment installed (at least) at 14th and Washington Streets.
I recall there being another one or two somewhere else in Hoboken, but it’s nice that the city has made accommodations for those less fortunate that most of us.
This intersection provides audible beeps as to when the signal is about to change, to allow those who lack adequate vision to pick up the pace a bit. Frankly, I find it a bit insulting to the blind, because even people that have vision just walk across the road, break the law, and act like they’re the most important bag of flesh on earth. I have very little respect for those that are so self-entitled and believe the world revolves around them. I mean walking when no car is visible for a distance is one thing, to blatantly (and “slowly”) cross like you’re made of holy water and should take your time, is another. You deserve to meet Mr. Darwin.
