If you made the mistake of not watching the debate between Brooklyn Councilman, Simcha Felder and the Director of Transportation Alternative, Paul White, you can correct your error today. Watch the debate on Larry’s Blog. Two diametrically opposed perspectives on parking tickets, NYC meet in a head-on clash. The main topic, Felder’s proposed NYC parking ticket law creating a five-minute grace period following a new parking rule going into effect, before a parking ticket warrior can issue an NYC parking ticket.
Felder cited an alarming statistic that 300,000 drivers were given a parking ticket last year within the first five minutes of a new parking rule going into effect. Paul White fires back by saying, if you add five minutes, then the fight will be over the 6th minute when a ticket is issued.
Felder called the parking ticket warriors vultures, standing at a meter that was about to expire with a ticket in hand. White took offense at that characterization. Instead, he described the warriors as hard-working New Yorkers trying to earn a living.
Get all the facts about the “grace period” and other important NYC parking ticket issues straight from the horse’s mouth. Let’s continue our discussion after you view the debate.
Who is the winner? Or, is the driving public the losers, again?
