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.

Trees got butchered in Hoboken. Why?

Can you guess why some trees got butchered in Hoboken?

Doesn’t matter if you’re a tree-hugging activist, or just an ordinary easy-go-lucky metro-citizen. Seeing trees get destroyed for no good reason should bother you. Care to wonder why some trees got butchered in Hoboken recently?

Killing mother nature for more Hoboken parking robots!

Yep. “Clearing the way” for more “automated pickpocketing systems” (parking meters, or “robotic thieves” or whatever you want to call them. And this street had NO parking meters before!

It’s becoming so painfully obvious that you can’t even walk a block anymore without money vanishing from your purse strings. And to top it all off – after all this “revenue” (thievery) gets funneled into city coffers, we have more roads than ever that are worse that rocky hiking paths. What the F are they doing?

Are they making it easier or harder for small businesses to survive?

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.

Boot = Theft

Parking boots in Hoboken have to stop!

So much for the city stopping the tyrannical process of STEALING your property and holding it ransom. Take a look at this recently booted car.

Booting with Hoboken residential stickers (and no temp tags!)

What’s worse about this particular boot – is that the person had a residential parking sticker too. That means they’ve previously voluntarily gave the city money for this stupid “privilege” of parking on the street.

Couldn’t they call the resident? Why literally STEAL hundreds of dollars?

Oh, and even if the sticker was “expired,” the resident wouldn’t have been able to buy one of those “scratch off” hang tags eitherbecause the city of Hoboken RAN OUT of them. How do you run out of hang tags? How are people going to park “temporarily?”

Our guess is that they don’t have a sufficient “inventory system” and someone was helping themselves to many of them. Wonder who it was?

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!
