School Safety Agents Victims of Ticket Blitz - Floyd Gets Action.
For decades, School Safety Agents at Curtis High School on Staten Island were allowed to park on the street in areas designated “no standing school days” using NYPD issued placards. That tradition recently ended when 8 Agents received $115 parking tickets. Teachers have been allowed to park in the school lot and on the sidewalk.
With the Mayor issuing 50,000 new parking permits for teachers and principals without identifying new parking spots, the Agents felt they were targeted. Local 237 President alerted CBS-TV reporter Marcia Kramer to the double standard and she spoke on camera to an Agent–whose identification was concealed. The parking tickets were rescinded.
