Yield to pedestrians? Yeah, right!
Common sense losing ground in Hoboken!
Today’s Hoboken Photo of the Day entry serves a couple purposes:
- First, where is this this in Hoboken?
- Next, I’ll repeat what I’ve always been saying. So many people get struck by motor vehicles each year in Hoboken, it’s ridiculous. And despite this “yield to pedestrians” state law – I put most of the blame these days on pedestrians. Not because they’re right or wrong, nope. It’s because they lack self-preservation (and have an over-abundance of self-importance). Regardless if you have the right of way or not – use fuggin common sense, please! Pedestrian vs. two-ton vehicle always turns out bad for the pedestrian. Capeesh?
- Lastly – everyone put down the damn gadgets and phones. Absolutely nothing happening there is more important than your own well being. Got it?
This has been a friendly Hoboken411 Public Service Announcement…
