HPU does it again!

Hoboken Parking Utility continually acts hypocritical

Sick how many times a Hoboken Parking Utility money van is spotted parked illegally for the exact same thing they rob residents and visitors for. Below are a few recent examples of what happens multiple times daily in the mile square city.

One Hoboken411 reader likened this situation to “a preacher who teaches the good ways of Lord Jesus, only to molest children when no one is looking.” What ever happened to leading by example?

This department – rather than emitting pollution, adding to the traffic flow, and creating dangerous conditions – should get out on foot and “be green” about stealing money from the local economy.

But then again, I’m sure it would put a dent in Mayor Zimmer’s projected pay raises for herself and her staff.

How anyone tolerates the hypocrisy in this city is beyond me. Unless you’re the type easily indoctrinated, of course.

Hoboken Parking Utility – double parked (in front of fire hydrant too!)

12/6/2011:

I wonder what the penalty is if you impeded a fire hydrant during an actual emergency – and maybe someone was injured as a result?

The penalty for a Hoboken Parking Utility vehicle in the photo below is: Zero.

HPU is atrocious! I wasted over an hour and a half in court yesterday to fight a ticket I received for parking in RESIDENT spot, even though I have a residential permit! HPU should be fined for all their hypocritical acts!

The HPU is a criminal organization.

WT- considering how you love to wax nostalgic about the old times, all you have to do is scroll down one story on H411 for your answer. HPU was brought under more city hall control and oversight because back in the day they ACTUALLY did steal from taxpayers. Not “steal” because they aggressively enforced parking regs (and as noted in 411 sometimes fining or no offense at all).
Jeez. Current mayor is thick and is done next election, but more oversight on the HPU is a good thing. The entitlement culture of the HPU employees and many city hall employees in general does need to be changed.

They will run over your grandmother to put more money in city coffers for Ian Sacs business trips.
