Hoboken GPS: People leave in plain sight

Common Sense with Hoboken GPS unitsContinuing the monthly “public service announcement,” Hoboken GPS Spottings (a reminder that it is completely moronic to EVER leave your GPS units behind in your vehicles.) No matter what time of day or night, it’s just not a good idea. Like leaving money on the dash!

If you recently had yours stolen – check out some of the top selling GPS units you can buy to replace yours. Just remember to remove it! Doesn’t matter how cheap they are now!

Again, not doing this to publicly “shame” anyone, but rather to raise awareness that it’s not in your best interest to leave items of value in plain sight. If people chose common sense over convenience or carelessness, perhaps we can provide fewer opportunities for petty criminals to get away with an easy grab.

If this feature just saves one person from being victimized, then it’s worth it to me.

What do you prefer? The hassle of filing a police report and fixing your car? Or taking a few seconds of extra time to prevent it?

Reality stepping up and slapping the faces of the naive and sheltered isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Those of us who know better were probably mugged by reality at least once.

it’s hard for people who move to, or visit Hoboken from the ‘burbs to understand that Hoboken is not Wonderland where bad things dont happen. People need to understand that as safe as Hoboken may be, crime does occur. It amazes me that people leave their cars running, while unattended thinking that they will not be stolen because “this is Hoboken”.

Things have never changed the past few hundred years.For those in transit guess it’s not that bad..For home owners it’s a real mess..regard taxes and parking along with thieves that lurk the city..Many decided to come to Hoboken,in hopes of raising familys ,changing the school system,and trying to save the world..How does one cram all these idealistic people into a mile and half square that’s a bit larger than central park.? mass transit does not always work out due to weather and such..Many need a vehicle but the question is where to park it? It seems to be the same in the entire county with all the development that is begun..everyone has to put aside 100.00 per month for pkg violations..btw the town needs affordable parking space more than parks with dog walks..Happy Easter @Passover to all of yea. 😉 [quote comment=”220086″]it’s hard for people who move to, or visit Hoboken from the ‘burbs to understand that Hoboken is not Wonderland where bad things dont happen.
