Illegal Parking Photo Sting – Brooklyn Borough Hall

Every day, tens of thousands of government employees park their cars in front of fire hyrants, bus stops, on the sidewalk and in otherwise illegal places. The practice endangers New Yorkers, and the NYPD refuses to ticket these brazen law-breakers. That's where we come in. Last year, volunteers from Transportation Alternatives busted hundreds of illegal government parkers in two famous studies. This year, we’re keeping up the pressure on permit-abusers with a new website. A team of T.A. staffers and volunteers will document illegal parking patterns with digital cameras (you provide your own) and the pics will be uploaded and geo-coded on the new website, providing a real-time snapshot of the worst illegal parking.
