Mismanaged Parking in Hoboken

Mismanaged Parking (and lack thereof) in Hoboken, NJ

We get it. In regards to the antiquated “infrastructure” that lays beneath our roads and sidewalks – there comes a time in which cars should be removed in order to facilitate necessary work. Such as water mains, gas lines, and sewerage outlets. It’s a way of life in the city.

mismanaged parking restrictions Hoboken NJ

But the crime syndicate known as the Hoboken Parking Utility is just so bad at managing parking arrangements in town – it’s sickening.

Like the photo above – entire blocks were restricted for parking. Signs plastering every vertical surface. HPU robbing residents ticketing and towing cars to make way for…. (drum roll)

Work that did NOT happen. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Not one minute of work took place, and was not going to for the rest of the day.

What should be happening is continual updates between the city and whomever is doing the work (PSE&G, United Water, etc.) If at 11am, it is determined that NO work will be done – the city should REMOVE those restrictions (and the signs) to allow residents to park again, and for local businesses to benefit from the nearby parking spaces. Even half a day of “recovered” parking is GOLD.

But will they ever strive to improve? Nah, because they already received money for the permits – as well as for the summonses issued. Why in God’s name would they want to make your life easier? Ha!

Here’s an HPU guy killing rain forests one “no parking” sign at a time. Give him a promotion!

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 2/20/2015

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – February 20, 2015

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category….

Here at 14th & Washington are two vehicles that are clearly parked illegally.

One is a Hoboken “environmental services” SUV, doing what – no one knows.

The other is a Budweiser minivan, probably ensuring that the local bars are fully stocked with fresh beer.

Who got the ticket? The Budweiser van. How frickin’ criminal is that?

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 2/18/2015

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – February 18, 2015

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category….

Today’s entry depicts a daily occurrence in Hoboken. An HPU “money van” illegally parked adjacent to City Hall. If you parked there because you wanted to down a few shots at Marty O’Brien’s before heading to work – you’d get ticketed, booted or towed!

Proof again that parking “rules” are not for “safety,” but PURELY for money for Don Zimmer’s psychiatric appointments and meds coffers.

The “mayor” herself recently bragged admitted that all these new parking thefts taxes fines fees are imposed to generate revenue. Which is why they “look the other way” when an obvious “safety” violation has taken place by “one of her own.”

Too bad people are overly fixated on fakebook to “starve the beast.” You know you all have the power to do so – but will never, ever do it until you allow all of your money to be siphoned away from you.

NOT okay for you!

Only for city hypocrites – NOT okay for you!

Adding to the city parking offender file here in Hoboken is yet another one of the daily examples of “it’s okay for US – but not okay for YOU.”

Here, a city utility vehicle parks in a forbidden zone for whatever reason.

If you parked there (say to drop off medicine for an elderly resident), you’d get ticketed, booted and robbed.

Reminder: The “laws” are (supposedly) for the sake of “public safety.” How does it being a city vehicle make it that much LESS of a “public safety” hazard?

Answer: It doesn’t, and the laws are complete BS only designed to steal money from you.

Useless parking meter trivia

Useless parking meter trivia in Hoboken NJ

Those economy-draining robotic pickpockets are bad in enough in Hoboken. Most visitors stand there and fiddle with the machines (most often putting in too much money). While I find the machines easy enough to use, the average idiot needs all the help they can get. And have you seen those useless “trivia facts” on the parking meters?

When the meter should have only the bare minimum “verbiage” on how to operate it – and absolutely NO clutter, the city decided to squeeze in the MOST useless “trivia” about Hoboken! (probably confusing dopey people that much more).

“Welcome to Hoboken – “The Mile Square City.” The Birthplace of Baseball, the Zipper, the first Steam Powered Ferry and much more!”

I bet the geniuses at City Hall said: “You know what? If we tell those idiot visitors coming to Hoboken that they’re in the birthplace of “The Zipper” – they’ll forget about the parking tickets and boots! Yeah!”

Earth to Hoboken: A happy historical message on a parking meter will NOT change the sentiment among those who you’ve robbed.

HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 1/7/2015

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – January 7, 2015

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category….

In today’s entry – a city pickup truck labeled Hoboken “Environmental Services” (euphemism for “outside janitor”) was illegally parked near Stevens Park at 4th & River. A HPU van drove by without slowing down even. Proof that the city laws are not for safety – but purely for PROFIT.

This is the same “Environmental Services” pickup that blatantly endangered drivers last week by driving up the wrong side of the road. I guess we’ll just have to wait for an innocent pedestrian to get injured before something is done.
