Hoboken GPS – Making people dumber?

Common Sense with Hoboken GPS units - Hoboken GPS spottings September 2013Continuing the monthly “PSA Photo Gallery,” 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!

Remember, never makes sense to leave valuables in plain sight. And this goes for the brackets – and even the suction cup marks they leave behind. “Hiding” your junk in the car won’t prevent damage.

Probably in 10 years or so, all cars on the road will probably have built-in GPS – so this trend can finally die down.

Then again, are you confident that things will be the same 10 years from now? Hmmm…

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?

You realize the irony of telling people to hide their GSP devices and then you post photos of GPS devices with giant arrows. You’re basically giving criminals a map to easy pickings. You know, “perhaps we can provide fewer opportunities for petty criminals to get away with an easy grab.”

Nearly every smart phone has at least one reliable maps app. Why is anyone buying a dedicated GPS?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
