Windshield Tweet: Handicapped Hater

10/12/2010:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Windshield Twittering” series…]

Get out of my blue spot!

This car, who is fortunate enough to have a handicapped spot in Hoboken, seems to have a “system” of handling “blind” drivers who cannot seem to obey the blue lines on the pavement.

The theory here is, that discourteous drivers have done this many times in the past – and the driver actually has pre-made printouts of this warning about his “big” Cadillac, and how hard it is to park.

No offense to the handicapped Caddy driver – but c’mon – your spot already has tons of room! If you can’t park your car there – then maybe it’s time to “hang the keys up,” and find alternative ways to get around. Because frankly, I’d be nervous driving within 100 feet of you!

[Stay tuned for the next Windshield Twittering entry!Note: Feel free to share your wiper-spottings – just email Hoboken411 with a clear photo or two, where you spotted it and how you’d like to be credited… ]

“…fortunate enough to have a handicapped spot…”

Yeah, what a fortunate guy. I can’t wait to have a heart condition so I can park right in front of my building.

The owner is requesting you honor this lawful boundary. Nothing wrong with that. He wasn’t requesting you give him further room to park his car.

Anyone with a handicapped spot in Hoboken has to pay a couple hundred a year for it. Why shouldn’t he have left a note requesting the car owner to respect a space he pays for?

Where is this written down that they have to pay “a couple hundred a year for it”. I would think there wouldn’t be that many if it was true. Alot of them belong to seniors on fixed incomes. Also, there are some in front of the subsidized “Applied” buildings. I would think that’s a large sum for someone living there to come up with. A parking permit is alot cheaper.

At least 65% of the HC spots on the street in town are held by fully capable parties that knew someone to get the spot. I’ve seen many people that legitimately need the spot denied while others handed it and keep their car parked all day long and walk around town.

Some even place cones in the spots in front and back of their car taking up two or three spots at times……..

Where did you get “65%”? If it was from the source I believe it is from, no need to show me.

The gentleman is too kind. He should just have the ticket for impeding on handicap parking issued.
