Bike Share Blamed for $475 in Parking Tickets
A New York University graduate student was hit with $475 in parking fines after workers moved her car to an illegal spot while clearing space for New York City's new bike-share program. The New York Post reports that Patricia Preston left her car at a legal parking place in Manhattan on April 30. When she went to move it, her car was gone and a Citi Bike rack was in its place. Preston said there was no sign warning her that the bike rack was coming. The city charged her $220 for towing and she got three other tickets, two for $95 and one for $65. She got the charges dismissed in traffic court Friday but is angry she had to fight the tickets. The bike-share program started last week.
