This morning, Wednesday, Chol Hamoed Succos, I was on Coney Island Avenue and the corner of Avenue K and saw the license plate of a car in the bus stop light up on the front of the bus. I then learned the newest method being used to issue parking tickets.
You may have noticed the newest fleet of MTA buses, and each of them is now equipped with a camera linked to the Parking Violations Bureau. If a bus pulls into a bus stop and there is a car there – even if the car is running and not in park – the bus camera takes a picture of the license plate and the registered owner of the plate photographed will be sent a parking ticket in the mail. This is a $165 ticket. It uses the same system as the red light cameras located at many intersections.
Save yourself the headache and save yourself the money by never pulling into a bus stop for any reason, even if it is just to drop someone off or pick someone up. The city has found a way to raise more money and with the picture of your plate at the bus stop it will be very difficult to fight this ticket.
Make sure everyone in your family is aware of this.

THIS HAS WHAT TO DO WITH LAKEWOOD …?
Thanks TLS for keepeing us informed of what is happening in our home city which most of use go all the time!
anything to get our money, no matter how poor & how bad the economy gets.
A PURE ACT OF CORRUPTION
Sounds like great technology to me. Someone’s using their head back in the city.
The bus stop sign says “no stopping or standing” It’s about time the city figured out how to get people out of the bus stops.
i thought it waa ok to stop in a bus stop the issue was parking
Has anyone confirmed that this is true? I have not seen this on the mainstream media and this is something they would have before TIS! Sorry TLS lol
#1 stay calm -its not good for u ! Tls is helping “u” when u head in to the shvigger for2nd days don’t park @ a bus stop that’s all
I heard about this idea a while ago. I think Bloomberg picked it up in London, among some of his other mishugassen. I believe they had initially started this in the areas that have designated bus lanes – where you can’t drive in the right lane at all during certain hours.
Welcome to Brooklyn. Thanks for posting this alert so those visiting don’t get caught unnecessarily in something that is avoidable.
So, if I double park next to the first car in the front of the bus, will the camera work?
