Hoboken GPS spottings December 2013

Hoboken GPS spottings trended down in 2013

Wrapping up the monthly “PSA Photo Gallery” for 2013 – 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!

Luckily – I believe the trend of people leaving GPS units in their cars will eventually go away as more and more cars have this feature built-in, along with powerful phones have eliminated the need for a separate device. I wonder what petty thieves will pick for their quick grabs next?

And one benefit for snow in Hoboken, is that they completely hide the GPS units! Thieves are typically too lazy to wipe the snow off the windshield of each car they’re casing.

About Hoboken GPS spottings

The Hoboken GPS Spotting feature exists, not for the purpose of publicly “shaming” 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?
