Reader Mail: Pimped out cop cars
Hoboken411 reader “nacholibre” was curious about one particular police vehicle today. I happened to see the same SUV and snapped this pic during my afternoon walk around town…
What’s with the plate cover?
“Here is something interesting I noticed. Today I was behind the black HPD Jeep Liberty #145. I thought something looked odd, and I realized it was the tinted license plate cover on the back tag.
Not sure why HPD (or anyone for that matter) feels the need to cover up and obscure their tag, but it is a violation of the vehicle code: “No frames or covers can obscure any letters on a New Jersey license plate.”
Even if it only cost $10 at AutoZone, it seems pretty ridiculous to be pimping police rides.”
Sure, not the biggest of our problems, but is this just another example of Hoboken waste?
