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.

Arrogance on Display in Hoboken

Screw the law! Arrogance on Display in Hoboken

Wow, was coming back from getting (sub-$2/gallon) gas the other day – and was patiently waiting at the light near Jackson & Newark Streets.

Then out of nowhere – this CITY OF HOBOKEN “Environmental Services” pickup truck blasts left on Harrison Street – up Newark – on the WRONG SIDE OF THE STREET in order to not have to “wait” at the light like the rest of us. Not only was that illegal and dangerous – it was also a dickhead maneuver – as that blocked westbound traffic as well.

Is that arrogance on display in Hoboken or what?

The law or rules don’t apply to city workers because they have some kind of “official” designation?

What’s the point of parking laws if Hoboken breaks them? Here’s a dopey scooter cart parked in the yellow uptown for half an hour – no driver present.

And it doesn’t matter whether this was an HPU vehicle or not – it is still a vehicle that parks illegally without repercussions. You’d get robbed.

Miracle Parking Job

Hard to believe, but true: Miracle Parking Job in Hoboken

Wow, I did a double-take the other day when I noticed this pickup truck parked near the Hoboken High School. A true miracle parking job that’s for sure.

At first glance at this “legally” parked vehicle, I thought it had to be some kind of private business. But no! It was a Hoboken Board of Education vehicle. Not double parked, not parked on the red curb – but pretty much where cars are supposed to park.

While it’s crappy that a city vehicle took a space away from a resident who may have been able to use it – it is still astounding to witness this rare event (sort of like a blue moon).

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – September 8, 2014

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

Reader Michael spotted this common occurrence near 3rd & Adams. A city vehicle not only double parked while they tended to personal business – but also blocking that moronic bike lane.

“Small yet classic example of the abuse of power committed every day by Hoboken Municipal workers…”

Every day. Day in and day out. Multiple times a day – these HPU “money vans” double park to issue tickets.

Bottom line – YOU get harassed when you double park to pick up your dry cleaning. They just collect money for city coffers. If it were only the other way around!
