Parking ticket bills vetoed by Mayor Bloomberg
“Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.” [Erich Fromm]
The following is a list of 6 new laws proposed by the NYC Council. The Bloomberg administration rejected 5-6, as follows:
Proposed New Law
|1. Requiring ticketing agent to photograph a car to prove a violation occurred||Reject|
|2. Suspending ASP Rules when film crew is tying up parking spots||Reject|
|3. Preventing fraud by adding barcodes to parking placards||Reject|
|4. Requiring judges to dismiss ticket upon receipt of valid muni-meter receipt||Reject|
|5. Issuing a 1-day parking permit for residents who are moving||Reject|
|6. Eliminating “late fees” until 30 days after final judgment||Approve|
I’ve listened to a terrific video report by Channel 2 News, and disagree with every reason advanced by the Bloomberg administration for rejecting the new proposed laws. The rationale ranges from the police already carry too much equipment [what about the parking ticket warriors?], to an honest public servant should not be required to submit additional photographic evidence to support his/her sworn statement [Yea, right…and Tinker Bell just became a parking ticket warrior].
I agree with Transportation Committee Chairman, James Vacca, who said:
[alert type=”success” icon-size=”normal”]”If you ask me this entire issue of traffic summonses in this city has become a cash cow that the city wants to continue to perpetuate.”[/alert]
What do you think? C’mon, don’t be shy?
