Slow down!

Slow down in Hoboken, NJ – what’s the hurry?

While I’m no fan of someone else decreeing what is right and wrong for me (under threat of financial penalty), I definitely see no need to speed around like a maniac. Sure, there are places where you want to open up your car a little (like on a highway with little or no traffic), but on craptastic pothole-filled roads like in Hoboken, it just makes no sense.

Apparently, though – some roads are worse than others. Hence, the Hoboken Police recently installed a “warning” message on Hudson Street reminding drivers that the speed limit is 25 miles per hour, and that the law is “radar enforced.”

Perhaps the warning message was enough to curtail the speeders, because I didn’t see any speed traps anywhere.

Do you think people drive too fast in Hoboken? Or is the “Mad Max” like environment just what is needed to get narcissistic people to get off their smart phones?

Maybe the City realizes the risk to vehicles of the craters in the uncared for roads and the council insists on minimizing the risk of lawsuit – rather than repairing the roads.

I don’t think we need the city to tell us how to drive. They just want to show off the toys they buy.
