Hobokenpix: Dumpy city car

5/1/2009:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 5/1/2009

Conspiracy theorists out there think I (Hoboken411) have some kind of grand master plan as to what gets published here on a daily basis… oh boy – furthest from the truth. If you want a teeny insight into what has shaped me to this point – check out A. C. Ping’s line of books “Be,” “Do,” and “Faith.” Not the best books ever written – but somewhat inspirational to me at some point.

Oh – anyway – here’s a shot of a dumpy Hoboken “Human Services” car parked uptown near the Hudson Tea Building. It’s all banged up – and sits there for days at a time. I have no idea why. Nor no I care. Just wondered if anyone else did.

PS – if you have images collecting dust on your camera or hard drive – send them in for eventual inclusion on Hoboken411! Please state how you’d like to be credited in your email, and a description – if desired!!

what happened to the HPD Segways? 25 mile range between charges, 12mph max speed, $10k purchase price, cannot be used on the city streets, cannot be used on most hoboken sidewalks. one of the dumbest ideas ever for HPD…and yet the horses are gone! the new 2 yr old fleet of police crusers were supposed to last 7+yrs…how’s that working?

Lyndhurst and North Arlington have these kinds of electric police cars:comment image

seems like that would make sense for Hoboken.

The offset to get some electric vehicles for local use is an excellent one Tom. My friend said he’s supporting you and I watched you with the other candidates on the mayor’s forum. I was very pleased to see someone come in and talk about innovating government as you did from “the bottom up.”

You made a number of excellent points and your comments on development which of late has meant expansion without the supporting infrastructure impressed.

Giving serious thought to your candidacy now. I just want to say thanks.

[quote comment=”152911″]good idea Tom. I’m assuming that would be a gradual replacement, as current vehicles in the fleet come to the end of their useful life?[/quote]
Actually, no. I’d like to sell what we can to offset the cost of the electric vehicles. That is if we own them, they might be leased in which case it would have to be phased.

And I’d get Mo’s input as well. Smart cars start at $12,000 and could replace vehicles that need to travel out of town.

Great Idea Tom, Moe DeGennaro as a $1 advisor has given a lot of information on ‘smart’ vehicles to the administration with none of it being accepted.
