HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – 5/6/2014

Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day – May 6, 2014

Continuing the “HPU Hypocrisy of the Day” category, here’s a TRIPLE WHAMMY – submitted by Hoboken resident Eric.

In today’s entry – the HPU (“Hoboken Pickpocketing Underworld”) parks illegally – But not in the red curb zones. Nope. But in a BIKE LANE that the Mayor loves so much. So what make’s this a three-bagger?

  1. The idled the van for 20 minutes with engine running (pollution).
  2. Bikers were “endangered” (legal liability)
  3. And Eric says ANOTHER HPU van pulled up later, and blocked traffic for 5 minutes! (Quality of life issues)

Your property tax dollars hardly at work.

About Hoboken HPU Hypocrisy of the Day
The HPU Hypocrisy of the Day is a photo feature on Hoboken411.com.

Created out of need – this section features the blatant hypocrisy in the Hoboken city government. Get this – Parking “laws” were created under the guise that it is either for “safety of residents, drivers and pedestrians,” or to “make parking more fair for law abiding citizens.”

The city, however – VIOLATES those very same laws. The bottom line is THEY DON’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT SAFETY. They just want your MONEY.

You frustrated with the hypocrisy? Caught them on film? Simply email Hoboken411@gmail.com with your photo, location and sorry story!

For a good dose of hypocrisy, check out the crosswalk by the Stevens Park LL field–someone removed a pylon that was there to protect pedestrians, so that city vehicles can park in the crosswalk.


Nothing to see here! All clerical errors! Far be it for a Director or elected official to shape up their behavior. As long as the budget padding continues, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
