Some prankster put up "No Parking" signs on a Brooklyn street and then the cops arrived and ticketed the cars and then the tow trucks arrived and took them away.

What does this say about the coordination between the parking, police, and tow services.  You mean to say that when temporary signs go up no one on the police department is notified?  That the cops don’t check somewhere before they write tickets and then have cars towed when temp signs are involved.  One quick phone call could have solved this problem.

The tickets will be dismissed, by the parking department, which is not involved. But I understand to get their cars back, the folks have to pay the $200 towing charge. Who is to say that the towing company didn’t put up the signs…

Not very good form all around.
