Hoboken Cone-ing

Does “Cone-ing,” a mild act of vandalism – bother you in Hoboken?

Putting traffic cones on top of cars is nothing new in Hoboken – and frankly, it’s not really a big deal (other than if the cones were removed from a dangerous hazard.)

Most of the time, it’s some drunk guy stumbling home from wherever he intoxicated himself – and amuses himself and his friends by relocating a traffic cone on top of a car. It may be some form of OCD, who knows.

But does this act of Cone-ing (courtesy of Urban Dictionary) disturb you in any way, or is it just a minor nuisance?

In a town where on-street parking means bumper rash, mystery dents, side-view mirrors reattached with duct tape, and other routine automotive indignities, I’d say getting
coned ranks pretty low in the risk hierarchy.

Now if I was some pipsqueak girl with an absurdly tall SUV, which put the cone out of reach, I might see a problem.

Doesn’t bother me and it shouldn’t bother the people who does this when I ram one of these things on their head, because, hey man, we’re just having fun.
