Snagging loud cars & motorcycles in Hoboken

Would Noise Snare put an end to obnoxious vehicles in Hoboken?

A must-have product in Hoboken: Noise Snare.

The Noise Snare system snaps photos of all the loud, obnoxious motorcycles or cars that violate tolerable noise levels – so that summonses can be sent via mail. I like the fact that it’s vehicle mounted, and can be located anywhere in town.

This, along with clear signs in prominent locations throughout the city announcing that the Noise Snare system is in use – would certainly cut back on the number of offenses over time.

Considering this is a frequent complaint from residents – it would be prudent for the city to take this suggestion seriously.

A town that issues permits to multiple jack hammers in the same neighborhood on the same day- operating 8 hours a day, is not going to give a D about passing noise.

The aural raping was probably the memorial drive bys that have taken place after the collision above. I say “collision” because as one police officer said, most crashes are not accidents because better driving would prevent them.

Not all motorcyclists are d-bags, but anyone in town, and especially the area of the crash (and Washington St.) know there are plenty of reckless sport bike drivers. I have seen them wind it up in packs and tear ass down Jackson St. right where this happened. Not saying any of them were the same guys or affiliates, but it’s not a rarity.

While I am not callous to loss of life, if the fatal accident was due to recklessness by the operator (as the investigators stated) then it is better he pay price than an innocent bystander. Still a tragedy to his family and friends.

Curious as to why I didn’t see any coverage of this by 411 (unless I missed it). No blotter coverage that day? Seems like a fatal accident would warrant an entry.

Sounds like the Sturgis chopper rally out there tonight. Only we’re in a town of 50K people per square mile … not in the middle of goddamned South Dakota. Good thing nobody uptown needs any sleep tonight. It’s not like we have lives or jobs or anything like that. It’d be a shame if the cops had to do anything like keep some public order around here.

There must be some more memorializing via high RPM. Not really doing anything to enhance the image of sport bikes.[quote comment=”207369″]Sounds like the Sturgis chopper rally out there tonight.

Having SOME POLICE presence on the street would be a good place to begin…..Anyone who visits this town knows that there are NO POLICE present anywhere in the evening hours. I have heard kids say this and they know they can get away with anything without any repercussions….so sad that the town can’t even police itself.

The problem is not that Hoboken “can’t” police itself. The problem is that Hoboken “won’t” police itself. Any half-conscious nitwit can see the problems we have every night in this town. Whether the cops will do anything serious about those problems is an entirely different matter.

For the most part, our problems are one of two flavors — opportunistic thefts or drunken mayhem.

The thefts require real police work. For example, actually checking for fingerprints when someone gets burgled – that might help. (I speak from first-hand experience.)

The drunken mayhem mostly requires choking off the problem at the source … going after the bars that feed the drunks. A few months-long shut-downs, for violating Dram Shop laws, would get the attention of the bar owners very quickly.

Of course, so would that pig that just few across the sky in my little fantasy world. Or not.[quote comment=”207366″]Having SOME POLICE presence on the street would be a good place to begin…..Anyone who visits this town knows that there are NO POLICE present anywhere in the evening hours.

A few people told me that Eric posted on facebook that earlier that day he was stopped doing 145 MPH. His cousin said that he blames the cop that stopped him doing 146 MPH.
