Blocked in Motorists

You’re a “blocked in motorist” – so what would you do?

what would you do if you were a blocked in motorist in Hoboken NJThe phrase “blocked in motorist” in Hoboken has three variations.

  1. A persons driveway is blocked by another car.
  2. Someone is double-parked next to a car trying to leave.
  3. Cars are almost “touching” a car both in front and back (parallel parking streets).

In most instances, people don’t call the police right away. They typically lay on their horns (thus disturbing the neighborhood for their own selfish needs), and a good chunk of the time, the “offending” driver moves their car (circumstance #1 and #2 above).

However, when you’re “squeezed in” by two parked cars – the drivers are more often than not nowhere nearby. Either they’re home, at work, or not in ear-shot of your obnoxious horn-honking.

So what would you do, or what have you done in the past?

Man up? Or cop out and cry for “help?”

Below is a photo of some incompetent wimp who actually called the police because his precious car was in a bit tight. I checked it out, and with maybe a handful of back and forths, I could have gotten out. And sure enough, that’s exactly what this Hoboken motorcycle cop did.

He helped the sad sack maneuver his way out of the spot without scratching his prized possession (which he most likely he didn’t have “title” of anyway).

What if you were in a tight spot like that? Would you call for help? Or would you figure out a way to get out?

Even if you’re very careful, your bumpers will get scratched by some other driver. So we’ve given up trying to preserve, and don’t want to be bothered with the hassle of bumper badgers. So we just push on the cars blocking us. Screw it! A concession you have to realistically make in order to be content with having a city car.
