Hoboken Police and Fire Blotter: 4/25/2011

Hoboken crime and fire action: April 25, 2011

Various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls for Monday, April 25, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.

  • 12:35am (4/26/2011): Car Break-in
    Reports of a “group of juveniles” who broke into a white Toyota Prius at the intersection of 10th & Hudson Streets. The alleged actors fled westbound on 10th, and HPD is actively searching for them. Smart car or not – still a target for petty criminals.
  • 12:10am (4/26/2011): Our beds are burning!
    Reports of a “bed on fire” at 310 Jackson Street. I doubt very highly they were listening to Midnight Oil.
    12:30am – fire was extinguished.. great job, HFD!
  • 6:45pm: Another Pedestrian Struck!
    A pedestrian was struck by auto at 15th and Bloomfield Streets. This is the same intersection that Transportation Czar Ian Sacs said was much safer now.

More updates to come…

I walk through this intersection every day – most cars refuse to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk at 15/Bloom. How can they say it’s safer now?

Living around 15th and Bloomfield I can say that the crosswalk in this area are all incredibly dangerous. People rarely stop and even honk at you. I hear yelling matched between pedestrians and drivers out my window all weekend long. Is there a reason that 15th and Bloomfield and 14th and Park do not have stop signs or traffic lights? If we as a town are so willing to rip off visitors on St. Drunk’s day why don’t we protect those of us that live here with 5000$ fines for running a crosswalk with a pedestrian in it?

6:45pm: Another Pedestrian Struck!

Not a surprise. 15/Wash has been improved by the 4-way stop, but the drivers largely disregard the cross-walk at 15/Bloomfield. It’s also pretty tough to get across 15/Hudson. Kinda frustrating, considering there’s 500 units on the north side of 15th. That’s an entire neighborhood that has to dodge the in-and-out flow along 15th.

The misbehavior on 15th is almost entirely by cars zooming in/out of town. Mostly, they finally clear the backups on Wash. and are eager to finally get moving, or have fought their way in from the suburbs and are still hyped-up from the rugby scrum near the Lincoln Tunnel.
