Pedestrian struck 11th & Bloomfield

7/19/2008:

The hits keep coming in Hoboken.

Similar to what was overheard last night, more vehicular incidents involving struck pedestrians. This time in broad daylight and perfectly clear weather. The pedestrian that was hit at 11th and Bloomfield Streets didn’t appear to have life-threatening injuries and was carted off to the hospital.

I’ve been here for 11 years and still stop at those yield to pedestrian signs. Heck I even stop at intersections without those signs if someone is crossing or about 2 steps to the corner about to cross.

It’s the person, not the culture. Free will and stuff.

Why do people believe others are the way they are and have no other choice than follow the assumed assholiness paradigm?[/quote]

i’m with you midnight. i stop at every single stop sign (at the stop sign not in the crosswalk), I slow down at non stop sign intersections because I expect pedestrians to pop out of nowhere (even still they manage to surprise me), and I always let peds cross if they are at the corner before I’m rolling through.

granted, we all make mistakes. distractions happen, and no one is a perfect driver. that’s why when I’m a pedestrian I assume that the drivers are not paying attention to me. too many offensive drivers in this state/town, not enough defensive ones. same can be said for pedestrians.

[quote comment=”94040″]How did the world ever work before Blackberry’s?
I actually took them away from my staff 2 months ago, after an internal study found they made our people less productive. 60% of all the messages were non work related.[/quote]

your staff might benefit from a program called Xobni. it’s email management software that helps prioritize emails and targets times of day where you receive “more productive” emails vs. the personal emails. sounds cool, but I haven’t tried it yet myself.

i have read a lot of studies that it actually reduces productivity as well. though they are convenient if they are properly managed. so that doesn’t apply to all users of the device.

During some recent reflection, I have yet another theory on why this accident occurred. The alleged “Hoboken-ite” who “got hit” by the car definitely has only himself to blame. As the pictures depict, he was much too jacked and tan for his own good. If he wasn’t such a stunning human being, the driver, who’s name was Ahk-meeeeeed-yeeckkk-acckkkk, would never have hit him!

Additionally, the Hoboken-ite may have been drinking too many heinekens and jager bombs… skanks, skanks, skanks, skanks. Botato? Botato? I SURE DID DADDYYYYY. TWO PLUS YEARS KIMMMMM ONNNNNNNNNN I LUHHVVVVV HERRR

The real impression I get from all of this is that the d-bag who was stupid enough to get hit by a car was only looking out for himself, and not his friends, and hence deserves it. i have learned that this d-bag has achieved celebrity-status in Hoboken, and may have even met a new female friend as a result. Naturally, this selfish d-bag did not immediately offer her up to his friends, a true selfish act. BE A TEAM PLAYER.
