Honest drivers exist in Hoboken

Hoboken has at least ONE honest driver! Leaves note!

The other day, I spotted this cute Audi TT parked along Hudson Street.

It had a strange note on the windshield that caught my eye (different than parking tickets or windshield spam).

The hand-written note was from a driver who had inflicted some minor damage to the front end of this car. And instead of driving away (like most entitled a-hole Hoboken drivers), he wrote an apology, said he’d pay for the repairs and a phone number to contact him.

Way to go!

Sadly, leaving such a note these days is risky business.

Maybe in pre-1970s suburbia, this kind of thing worked as advertised. But since we’ve been slipping into a low-trust, siloed society, with basic dishonesty as a force multiplier, doing the right thing is very often an invitation for punishment.

IOW, “sorry I dinged your front end, call xxx-xxxx…..” may easily produce a demand to fix the engine and suspension, followed by a small claims action. Or worse.

Not sure what the previous comment has to do with the topic?

My friend in the UK returned to their car to find it had the front fender dented in the corner and a note left under the windshield wiper. He read the note which said ‘I just reversed into your car by accident and there are a bunch of people gathered round watching me write this note thinking I’m leaving my phone number…. Sorry, hope its not too expensive to fix, bye’!

MSTA’s request for endorsements from elected officials on a YES vote for Question 2 October 26, 2012 Mayor and Councilmen and Councilwomen: A YES VOTE ON QUESTION 2 IS RIGHT FOR HOBOKEN As Hoboken’s elected officials, you have heard a lot about the politics of the rent regulation system in Hoboken, but I am concerned that many of you may not have had the time to sit and reflect on the policy issues related to the upcoming election on November 6th. Last year most of you encourage your constituents to vote to reform rent control, and I would ask that those of you who have not made a recommendation do the same this year – Vote YES on Question 2. Some of you already have made comments about Question 2, and you still have time to reconsider your position. To that end, I respectfully submit MSTA’s full position on Question 2. BACKGROUND · in September of 2009 you started hearings in rent control in Hoboken as a result of phantom violations of the rent leveling ordinance. You held 6 meetings · in January of 2011 you introduced amendments to the ordinance meant to cure the problems created by various applications… Read more »
