From CBS New York:
Nobody likes getting parking ticket. But it’s especially infuriating when the rules are changed right before your eyes.Watch the video:
[...]It happened on West 15th Street at Seventh Avenue, where bike racks now stand. But on Saturday morning, as surveillance video shows, cars were parked there and were legal. The tape shows a city transportation crew changing “alternate side, Monday and Thursday” signs to “No Standing Anytime.”
Then, within 25 minutes of the signs going up, traffic agents were swiping registration stickers and issuing tickets to five or six cars parked there. One building manager watched it happen.
[...]The fine: $115. The only notice: paper signs that warned of towing if cars were not out by 6 p.m. Saturday, but what happened to the motorists Slattery spoke to happened six hours before.
[...]“They don’t care. They just want to collect money for Mr. Bloomberg — from my pocket,” Cherrez said.
Who wants to bet these predators planned this out?
