Where are the “bike warnings?”

No bike warnings in Hoboken – but dog poop warnings galore!

Every single block in Hoboken has “pick up after your dog” signs – along with a reminder that you can receive a whopping $500 fine.

Should people get fined if they purposely choose not to clean up after their dog? Sure. Does it warrant a half a grand? Absolutely not.

Dog Poop Fine Hoboken NJ 500 dollars

Asshole bikers deserve MORE warning signs and stiffer fines

If Hoboken keeps the asinine $500 fines for dog poop offenders (and doesn’t lower it to something that “fits the crime” – say a $15 penalty), then those entitled bicyclists who ride into oncoming traffic on already narrow and hazardous roads should receive a fine of upwards of $2000 per offense.

Heck, having an open beverage containing alcohol is the same fine – and it’s pretty much a “victimless” crime! So then bikers should receive MORE! Make it $3,000!

IMPORTANT TIP! If you drive in Hoboken be SURE you use a decent DASH CAM at all times. Even if you just drive to Shoprite. Because if you hit one of these dopes going the wrong way and have no hard core evidence, you can BET they will claim you didn’t give them enough room (and probably win because of the pathetic sympathy they undeservedly get.)

Not only will that dash cam accident footage sufficiently “cover your ass,” you’ll have a hilarious video to share with friends that could even go viral on YouTube!

I find it funny how one sided 411 is on both the bike issue and the dog poop.

Yes the bike lanes are ridiculous but complaining about curbing your dog signs and fines for not cleaning up doog poop. C’mon man.

#1 dog poop in the street is disgusting when not cleaned up. If you own a dog take care of it, its your responsibility. You don’t live in on a farm, you live in Hoboken…

#2 the signs people put on their personal yards about not using their grass as a personal bathroom for your pet are put there for a reason. Condo buildings pay good money from owners pockets to make their landscaping look nice and a place where kids can play without having to worry about your pet, especially a pet who doesn’t live there or pay for upkeep. It keeps the yard more germ free and stops big yellow spots of dead grass caused by dogs.

Sphynx, so do you think that you might handle the local enforcement end with the Hoboken police. Getting the City to cooperate without being compelled by the state or the Feds is next to impossible at least for me. It is appropriate that the City enforce the state regulations.

You will have to track it as it matures. Write to your Senator and Assemblymen asking for their support. [quote comment=”223743″]What is the name of this bill? i would like to read it.[/quote]

What have you done but complain?

I have contacted police with location and times when they can nail a lot of violators. They said they stationed an officer there.

Local police need to have the commitment from the Chief and given that Zimmer believes everyone will eventually “acclimate” – it has been four years and it is only worse – then the police will just “yes” residents without actually doing anything. I wish I had a video sports camera to show that hardly any cyclist follows the law. You could be one of the rare few Sphynx and I am not being sarcastic in asking for assistance it is frustrating and dangerous to try to navigate street crossing in either a car, bike or as a pedestrian because of the lawlessness.[quote comment=”223740″]What have you done but complain?I have contacted police with location and times when they can nail a lot of violators.

I have Bill sponsors at the state level and working now at the Federal level. Someone could use to address the enforcement aspect of street riders. I am addressing the safety of the sidewalks first.[quote comment=”223740″]What have you done but complain?I have contacted police with location and times when they can nail a lot of violators.

Bill sponsors at the Federal level? I saw a unicorn galloping down Washington the other day. Fantasy land is a nice place.

Maybe if drivers learned to drive more cyclists would obey the law. [quote comment=”223741″]I have Bill sponsors at the state level and working now at the Federal level. Someone could use to address the enforcement aspect of street riders. I am addressing the safety of the sidewalks first.[/quote]

Some streets are painted as sharrows.

A shared-lane marking or sharrow[1] is a street marking installed at locations in Australia, Canada, and the United States. This marking is placed in the center of a travel lane to indicate that a bicyclist may use the full lane.

If you don’t believe me google it for yourself.

That doesn’t mean they can ride the opposite direction of traffic.[quote comment=”223724″]Some streets are painted as sharrows.A shared-lane marking or sharrow[1] is a street marking installed at locations in Australia, Canada, and the United States.

You are 100% correct.

I bike. I also daydream about karma dealing with the riders that give us a bad name.

They piss me off. There are rules that bike riders must follow but nothing that forces them to even learn to begin with. With the violations I witness drivers make, I wish they had to retake the written and driving test every few years. I wish their was some way to test bikers.

but I will take the center of a lane with shadow makings. I don’t ride on the sidewalk unless the street is unsafe. I do not pass pedestrians. I stop for stop signs and red lights, wishing each time I had hand brakes instead of coasters, but I stop.[quote comment=”223725″]That doesn’t mean they can ride the opposite direction of traffic.[/quote]

Sphynx, I wish you would stop wishing and take up the charge of pushing for enforcement in the City of Hoboken. It is ridiculous that conservatively 75% of Hoboken bikers are in violation of the law.[quote comment=”223729″]You are 100% correct.I bike.
