What can the City do? We all look alike to them.

Jefl

How foolish of the city to not include the date on the receipt. How else can one fight meter disputes?

Sarek

? The city didn't think of this work-around when they implemented the Muni-meter system?

Shmarya, please do not allow frum trolls to imitate names of established contributors here on FM.

I am referring to 'Jefl' above.

The trolls, consumed by hate of those who point out their stupidity, combined with lack of imagination, sometimes try to use monikers similar to those of us who are usually of the opposition.

"The trolls, consumed by hate of those who point out their stupidity"

Thank goodness that Shmarya, you and the others on thie blog have no hate.

never mind

Apparently, Shmarya's righteous ire comes from the likely fact that he has never personally owned and paid for a car in a major metropolitan area like New York. Mommy's free car and basement parking space don't count.

That such a scheme occurs in the open without fear of rabbinic reproach, is a sad commentary on the Orthodox community. Where are the rabbis?

What is needed is to have people register to post. The login/sign in process will preclude duplicate handles.

Simple, like the inclusion of the date on the muni-meter receipt.

Oh, like all the ticketing blitzes this city provides is so kosher, there are hundreds of NY citizens who just get slapped with all kinds of fines, whether guilty or not, they don't have the time or money to fight it, they just pay it, and Bloomy just rakes in millions a day. And the Traffic Cop is pretty much aware of that fact, all they are concerned is filling in their quotes!

Ticketing have simply become part of a revenue NOT to discourage traffic violations.

Towing someone's vehicle for just 2 fines and late fees are neither nothing short of a "scam". Yes, if its the "city" committing it then its all fine, but the average hard working citizen has to be tormented by the DOT.

Moshe-A hypocrite like you should talk.

Moshe-MEANT SHOULDNT TALK

StickItToTheMan

Well done!

Bassy the Haredi Slayer

All their lifestyle and livelihood from Pell grants to section 8 through welfare is based on fraud.

The Haredim always find ways to defend and rationalize it. Then they wonder why they are being despised by everybody.

Shoshi

How are there any people to donate receipts? Do some people pay and others don't? Is it, like, poor rabbinic families who don't pay the parking meters?

jancsibacsi

BASSY---MY NEXT DOOR HASSIDISHE NEIGHBOR IS PROUD HE GOT AN EXTRA $600 OF FOOD STAMPS BECAUSE OF THE HUIRRICANE BUT HE HAS NOTHING DESTROYED OR ANY HARDSHIP SINCE HE WASNT EFFECTED BY THE HURRICANE I AM SURE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS ALSO GOT IT THE EXTRA BUCK INSTEAD OF 12 HUNDERD HE GOT 1800.

Pluto

I dunno, man. It's a brilliant way of fighting the system, if you ask me.

Eli, what me messiah?

Isn't there a simpler solution if you're haredi in Brooklyn? Just go to Hynes' office and have them drop the charge.

Can anyone heading over there pick me up 4 or 5 Section 8 application forms? I need some extra cash this month.

chutzpah

"Where are the Rabbis?" Ha! They are praying for the gemach's prosperity and a 10% of the money each person saves on the ticket.

Moshele

The city is beginning to take pictures when they give tickets......
It may not be righteous yet the extreme the city tickets people's is almost impossible to get around.
