NYPD slowdown ends; cost NYC $5 million in parking ticket revenue
According to Slate, the alleged NYC ticket writing slowdown has come to an end and the city lost approximately $5 million in parking tickets alone. This figure is only the estimate for parking tickets - it does not include the other areas where revenue was lost due to unwritten tickets, such as moving violations and petty crimes. The City Comptroller's Office has not yet issued a statement on how much the city lost to the slowdown.
