The Brooklyn Paper covers parking placard abuse in Downtown Brooklyn and the Bloomberg administration's promise to crack down on it in this week's issue. Also in the mix – similar abuses in Brooklyn Heights. It's deja vu all over again!:
Brooklyn Paper: Placard Crackdown…: Downtown isn’t the only neighborhood crying out for relief. Judy Stanton, executive director of the Brooklyn Heights Association, says parking permit abuse remains rampant in her neighborhood.
“Mayor Bloomberg and police officials are frequently quoted in the news as saying that they don’t tolerate parking placard abuse, but that’s hot air,” Stanton said. “What I see is city cars with placards parking anywhere they please.”
Stanton said that asking the NYPD to ticket other cops is like having the fox guarding the chicken coop.
