    NYC Parking/ Traffic Violation Income

    According to The New York Post drivers in New York City are doing good.

    Here's the proof:


    Year: 2010 /2009


    Red-light camera tickets: 1,000,598/ 710,978

    Red-light camera ticket revenue: $ 55.4M/ $ 32.4M

    Parking tickets: 9,284,785 /9,994,849

    Parking ticket revenue: $ 540M /$ 557M

    Cars towed: 125,793 /114,819

    Towing revenue: $ 52M/ $ 51M


    For the first time ever the city ticketed more than 1 million vehicles for running a red light and getting caught on camera. The city's 150 secret cameras (50 were installed in 2009) nabbed on average of 2,741 drivers a day in 2010 (that's 18 vehicles per camera every day).

    In September city marshals were authorized to tow any vehicle with $350 or more owed for any traffic/ parking violations.

    The camera tickets (bus stops, bus lanes, turns from wrong lane) were overseen by The Department of Transportation and are not included in this Department of Finance database.


    For the record - I participated in 2009. Twice.

    You have to support your city, right?

    How many times per year (on average) do you support your city, Mike?

    We dont have traffic cameras and usually the cops here have more on there hands to deal with other than traffic.

    If your participation is via red light camera, keep in mind that this activity could lead to a situation that, contrary to most Internet comments, will not buff out.

    I heard on the radio that some city was selling the future income from parking meters. You pay now, then have the income from your meter(s) sent to you. Chicago???

    I thought New D/A Microfiber Correction System can take care of all car related problems.

    No red-light cameras, parking violations.


    To everybody who comes to New York City - don't park closer than 15 feet from fire hydrant. They meter it now.
