City vehicles endanger pedestrians & pets
Double intersection offenders @ 8th & Hudson
Yesterday, while walking around Hoboken, I tried crossing the street eastbound at 8th and Hudson – only to be impeded by a giant Hoboken “carpentry” van. And since the county paved the roads earlier this year – Hudson Street should be re-named Hudson Highway since drivers go 50mph or faster down these residential corridors.
What happened to those speed bumps on Hudson uptown anyway? Shouldn’t there be more on highly trafficked roads like this? Especially with school in session at Stevens?
Anyway, my dog was nearly hit – and once we finally got across the street, noticed yet another vehicle violating the intersection parking with various Hoboken permits in the windshield. This made it harder for cars coming west on 8th to see southbound Hudson St. traffic. I suppose like the dangerous intersection at Observer and Paterson – someone has to die before any corrective action is taken.
What city property is near 8th and Hudson that needs the city carpentry van there anyway?
