Someone Posts Bogus 'No Parking' Sign
NEW YORK (AP) -- Several Brooklyn residents woke up to find their street empty - because someone had posted a No Parking sign and police had towed their rides.
The sign, which bans parking on a street in the DUMBO neighborhood from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, mysteriously appeared Monday or Tuesday, residents said, and then police started ticketing and towing cars parked there.
But the Department of Transportation says there aren't any parking restrictions in the area and it doesn't know who posted the placard, which looks official.
Resident David Bourgeois said he had to pay $205 to retrieve his Mini Cooper, with a $60 ticket on the windshield, from a police pound Wednesday after it was hauled away.
"It's just outrageous," he told the Daily News for Friday editions.
The DOT said it would try to dismiss the ticket - and take down the No Parking sign.

Yea I understand not parking in a no parking sign area, But wtf. You cant post something while people are sleeping and tow their shit. What are people to do stand on the sidewalk and make sure signs dont pop up?

Oh, I bet the sign has been there for quite a while and people are pissed now because something finally happened.
Same thing here, our local business owners always complain about not enough police presence in the downtown shopping district, but then get all pissed when we cite them for parking in the yellow and red zones.
Fuck em', that's what I say...I may have many faults, but being wrong ain't one of them.
