Readerpix: A new contest idea?
Not sure if I can make this into an official contest yet – but Hoboken411 reader Bwat gets the Readerpix entry today with a great idea!
How many offenses can you get in one photo?
“I was so inspired by that picture of a cop car parked in the handicapped zone, when I saw this scene while waiting for a bus at Washington St & 3rd yesterday, I had to take a photo. How many violations can H411 readers spot? Worse, how much money did the city of Hoboken lose by not enforcing these violations? — signed, just wondering
(On the attached photo, you’ll see 5 possible ticketable offenses: the car in the foreground was parked for who knows how long in front of a bus stop AND the front of his car was in the bank driveway. Buses pulling in and out had to go around him, while negotiating the ice and snow. Nice guy. The middle car, was the slacker of the bunch, he just ran into Starbucks for a minute, something we all do now and then. The champion of the block was the double-parker in the back of the picture. Not only did he double park and disappear, but the person he was blocking came back to their car and couldn’t pull out. The legally parked car, the one with the headlights on, was blowing the horn for over 10 minutes without relief.)”
My guess is – that you might find the most offenses near the double parking zones – like Fiore’s Deli – or Benny Tudino’s (remember that Memorial Day “double parker super-highway” picture I took earlier this year?)
So far we have five offenses – break the record by sending more in!
What do you think the maximum number you can cram into one photo is?
