Orange cones have been observed on sidewalks in Downtown Brooklyn and on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights. These, according to the Brooklyn Eagle, mark the spots where the old parking meters will be removed and new Muni-Meters will be installed.
All well and good, but there's just one problem, according to Brooklyn Assemblyman William Colton: the city is ripping people off.
According to DOT, drivers can buy time from a meter on any street and use up the remaining time on another street as long as they keep the receipt. But officers are issuing tickets to people for doing just this, says Colton, and judges are enforcing a non-existent law. See the Brooklyn Eagle for the full story.
