Car falls in Automated Garage

5/18/2009:

Millions spent – cars still falling

Just overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel – another car fell from the elevator inside the Automated Parking Garage at 916 Garden Street.

Initially, the person inside the vehicle frantically called police saying the elevator was on top of them, but no serious injuries were reported and the driver was removed from the car without incident. They’re trying to extract the car from the garage now. HPU was called as well.

I wonder what the explanation will be this time? The millions of taxpayer dollars spent to replace Robotics as the operator – and mishaps like this couldn’t be prevented?

Not sure, but Cammarano got a contribution from Corea, so don’t look for any housecleaning at the HPU if he’s elected.

Seriously, this white elephant of a garage should be sold off, with the proceeds used to pay down the bond. A private operator might be able to run it successfully… unlike the city.

How many millions did we hand over to Corea’s buddies at Unitronics, and the garage still is not functioning properly and safely?

So the door was up and the tray for the car was not in place. Nice job reprogramming that monster machine. Perhaps a few more sensors to check to see if the tray is actually in place are needed?

As far as the driver, well some folks need to learn a lesson the hard way at least once. I am sure this driver will check next time before they drive their car into a hole in the ground. 🙂
