narrowly legal massive parking ticket blitz in woodhaven

Posted in: Queens NY

At least 10 cars have been given tickets for parking on 91st avenue and on 89 streets in Woodhaven between 89th avenue and Atlantic Avenues.  Despite the fact that there is no construction happening today and it’s a national holiday alternate side parking rules are suspended today 1/17/2011.   The metal signs were posted the regulation 36 hours before but as there was no construction.  I would take a picture of no construction work being done and get a letter from the contractors asking for dismissal of the tickets on the grounds that there was no interference with ongoing work as they took off for the holiday too. 

The site engineer is a very nice guy and will do all he can to help but it must be a coordinated action by all the affected ticketed parties and homeowners.  It is also dangerous to cross Atlantic Avenue to park with all the snow and ice around not being cleaned up.  No mercy is being given to residents who have no cut away or garages that are just being ticketed!  


With special chagrin I note that a car with a police placard is not ever ticketed for being in a corner no standing zone every morning on 88th street and 91st avenue.  


There are also several out of state plated cars which are not ticketed and towed which is in the purview of the city and state to do if they stay in the same spot more than a few days or here for more than 90 days(which they all are). 

These cars are owned by residents who own homes in Woodhaven and pay no New York City or New York State vehicle taxes or insurance and make all our rates go up.  Notwithstanding them stay parked for weeks in the same spot.  I hope the city wakes up and realizes that we of Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the Bronx make up the largest tax and voter base and not Manhattan!
