Hobokenpix: Need a diaper-scooper law!

8/12/2009:

This post is a long time coming.

$1000 fines please!

Because of the hyper-sensitive sense of smell the Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar has – I’ve (unfortunately) been in tune with a disturbing trend in the mile square lately: CRAP FILLED DIAPERS ON THE STREET.

I should have been snapping pictures all along – but it seems that every other day, we encounter a chunky wrapped doo-doo pouch filled baby diaper somewhere on the streets and sidewalks of Hoboken. It must smell like caviar for my poor pooch – but I find it WORSE than leaving Canine Candy. Baby poop is nastier!

How does this happen? Do people just change their babies on the fly and chuck the refuse? I’m sure I’m not the only one that notices this trend… If I am – please open your eyes.. they’re everywhere!

Am I the only one who finds this disturbing entry, um, hysterical?

I’m sorry. But this kinda stupidity plus laziness from some folks really cracks me up.

Call Sasso from the Hoboken Bd of Health. THis polluting our streets with all the vomit, poop etc by baby humans and caretakers , stoned out men and women who drop trou and take a pee and poop, and of course the dog poop has people getting sick. We walk thru it and bring it into our homes and get major illnesses and not even aware of the origin.

Major fines would be a good start and whip out those camera phones and post it on the web.

I have this unrealistic desire to scrub our floors every time we come home. I don’t want my kid crawling around on floor that has transfer from our city sidewalks.

(And no I don’t leave diapers lying about, we use cloth.)

When I walk my dogs there was one street I called “gross street” because there was always dirty diapers left on the sidewalk or in the street (not to mention a plethora of food and broken glass). It was on 5th between Jefferson and Adams.

…obviously not to say littering is ok if something IS biodegradeable…but you get the point

ew. so gross. people should be fined for leaving sht anywhere, whether its dog poop or baby poop. this should be on top of a decently sized littering fine, because im pretty sure most diapers are not biodegradeable.
