Cars ignore Road Closed sign at Sinatra
[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]
Cars still endanger pedestrians on Sundays
On more than a dozen occasions, I’ve personally witnessed cars driving beyond the “Road Closed” sign at 11th and Sinatra. As you know, Hoboken closed most of Sinatra Drive on Sundays – to allow residents and visitors to use the pavement parkland for practically anything.
In this particular incident, the driver almost went head-on into oncoming traffic, then nearly hit a person crossing the street further down the road.
Why don’t they have a traffic detail there to ensure that non-common-sensical drivers don’t endanger pedestrians or other drivers? Oh – wait, the city is jettisoning 18 cops from the force. Whoops.
