"Yonkers City Council Approves Traffic Cameras"
by Associated Press

PTF: "Watch out! My fellow NY drivers outside NYC. Traffic cameras will be watching your every move. Gov. Spitzer needs your dollars to fill his estimated budget deficit of $384 million. Source: Feb. 11, 2008, 'New York's Budget Deficit Deepens' by Michael Gormley."

"Says Queens Parking Tickets Bogus"
by Elizabeth Hays, Daily News Staff Writer

PTF: "Mayor Mike and his thugs can't be expected to police themselves properly. When the fox is guarding the hen house, the chickens are in big trouble. And the chickens are us, unfortunately. The assistant manager at my day job last year got a bogus parking ticket. He has NJ plates. Allegedly, he was parked at a 'No Standing' zone. But doesn't recollect ever having parked outside. Or getting a parking ticket. So, it's definitely not only one or only four or only a dozen dirty traffic agents. My guess is that, at least, 50% or more of NYC's traffic agents write bogus tickets some of the time. In order to fill their 'illegeal' ticket quotas."
