Rules don’t apply to everyone
Hoboken411 reader “Freewheelin” felt the need to share this “typical Hoboken story” with us today:
No turn on red (unless you know the cop)
“Typical Hoboken story.
A big black SUV is all the way past the crosswalk on 1st Street by City Hall and Washington. Cop pulls up right behind him as he ignores the no turn on red sign and turns right onto Washington. Cop puts on his lights and siren and pulls the SUV over in front of City Hall.
Cop gets out of his car and walks over to the SUV. Recognizes the driver. “Hey, how ya doin’?!” says the cop. Both flash big smiles and laugh. Cop walks back to his car and drives away.
In Hoboken, it’s all about who you know.”
