The Journal News says parking tickets are up since Muni Meters were installed but the actual number of paid violations is flat. The Nyack Parking Authority wrote 14% more citations this year than last in 2007, however, many of the initial violations during this transition period were subsequently dismissed due to complaints about insufficient instructions explaining how the new meters work.
|In a typical four week period..||2007||2008||Pct
|Total tickets issued:||2,345||2,744||17%|
|Total tickets paid||2,031||2,005||-1%|
