Parking ticket agents found to be illegally parking in NYC

According to PIX11, local business owners and truck drivers complained to PIX Investigates a few weeks ago about the lack of parking spaces available on 38th Street between 8th & 9th Avenue.  The cause of the parking problems?  New York City traffic enforcement agents (the same agents that issue parking tickets) were illegally parking their own private cars on this particular block.  

Agents were apparently displaying parking permits in their vehicles to avoid being ticketed.  However, business owners claimed those cars were creating problems by causing extra congestion and forcing their trucks to double park when making pick ups and deliveries.  

PIX11 contacted the NYPD about the situation, and they issued a statement stating that particular block of West 38th Street is not an authorized parking area for traffic agents to park personal vehicles and that the agents would be reminded as such.
