Hoboken Parking Hypocrisy!
Hoboken Parking Hypocrisy continues 4 years later!
This city loves creating all sorts of tiny rules in order to justify pickpocketing residents and visitors for their own salaries, taxpayer funded healthcare plans and crony contractor friends. Presenting the ongoing Hoboken Parking Hypocrisy saga, brought to you in full – by your “Mayor” Dawn Zimmer.
Since the last update to this post four years ago – the parking “do’s and don’ts” continue to be more like parking “haves and have nots.” In this case – take a look at this car on Hudson Street. In NO WAY harming anyone, causing cars or trucks difficulty in turning, nada. It’s about a foot over this fantasy red line on the curb. They get whacked with a $75 ticket.
Zimmer administration parks illegally. No problem (for them)
Here we have a fancy Mercedes parked clearly illegally near the intersection of Newark & Bloomfield near city hall. I take a look at the dashboard, and the car proudly displayed a “City of Hoboken Administration” placard. What? That is the “Dawn Zimmer Administration,” to be more specific.
Translation? We steal from YOU – and we break the rules we force up your ass (and out of your wallet.)
Parking thugs park illegally to steal from residents
Lastly – here’s one of the worst kind of offenders. An HPU money van, clearly parked in the red (like the poor guy above). No problem.
Translation? We park illegally so we can rob you for parking illegally.
If you’ve received a ticket in the past four years – why would you vote for someone to CONTINUE STEALING from you? You must LOVE abuse!
They want your money to fill budget shortfalls!
The number of complaints received by Hoboken411 regarding parking in Hoboken has skyrocketed immensely in the past few weeks!
I have so many photos from angry residents, I don’t even have the time to process them all. So I took the most recent gallery of a completely arbitrary violation. It’s apparent that the city is WAY short money, and have now enacted a citywide “pickpocketing” of their own residents. An uptown resident was so upset at getting this ticket – it begs the question: “What in God’s name are these so-called white-lines for?”
I’ve sent an email to the Parking Czar Ian Sacs for an OFFICIAL EXPLANATION to finally set the story straight. Since Hoboken411 gets over 2 million pageviews per month – the city would be doing a disservice to the residents if they do not respond in a timely manner. But then again, they only pander to those who kiss you know what!
“I was at the White Line! Right at it. $54.00 for what? So now I am supposed to take off a day of work to argue an inch with the judge?”
But commit the SAME violations!
This ought to piss you off even more. Here’s a gallery of a couple city vehicles – even MORE in violation of the ambiguous parking laws! No tickets, no regard, no enforcement. HPU employees walked by these two vehicles without issuing a summons! What gives, city-friggin-hall?
You voted her in!
