Since seen recently in this news, 30-year-old NYPD traffic observance agent Nivea Cloud has resigned after allegedly sloshing bogus parking tickets on dozens of legally left cars. NYC Parking Professional and author of “The Feder Guide” series of parking books had this to say, “It’s a difficult enough situation since it is – striving to park in NEW YORK CITY – without a traffic agent rendering it worse. I use no idea if the girl made it happen or not, but I recognize that We have heard from many people on PARKAZINE – my NYC parking e-newsletter, complaining of similar things. They’ve told me that they are getting auto parking tickets when they’ve recently been parked legally, as well as ‘phantom’ tickets, when they were nowhere nearby the areas in question. I actually can’t help thinking that if she actually is guilty, this traffic agent was striving to meet a solution quota”. apostila detran sp
Cloud has recently been arraigned on several charges – the most
blatant of which being giving over two-dozen parking seats at seven
different A queen locations within a three-hour time frame. She was
discovered being placed in her car (in a handicapped parking space on 43rd
Street in Long Island City) during the precise time that Cloud listed on
half a dozen summonses she issued to vehicles supposedly parked at 37-06
The invisible motive – parking ticketed quotas?
Although no objective was given, NYPD references have explained that Damage
thought it was much easier to ticket legally parked automobiles than to be sent and
search for illegally parked automobiles. But is laziness really the whole answer?
An additional line of thinking keeps that Cloud was attempting to fulfill parking
solution quotas. Although Mayor Bloomberg has denied their presence,
preferring to call the quotas “performance standards”, previously this year
an arbitrator named Bonnie Siber Weinstock did in fact realize that these
quotas can be found and this officers who concern less than 35 car parking
summonses per quarter are at risk of facing disciplinary action. Feder says, “People have long diagnosed that police and traffic officers in NYC have quotas of parking and other tickets that they need to meet. If the traffic enforcement agent is in fact guilty of knowingly ticketing cars that were parked legally, it would be a very small step to conclude that she was trying to fulfill a parking priced quota”.
Whether Ms. Impair was aiming to fulfill a parking ticket quota, the
NYPD reports that every parking ticket issued by Nivea Cloud within the last
three years will be voided. If guilty of the fees brought up
against her, Cloud encounters up to four years in prison.
