Vehicles Belonging to FBI Agents, Police Aren’t Exempt from New York’s Strict No-Parking Zones

For decades, FBI agents and other law enforcement in New York who were illegally parked faced little to no consequences.

But now the New York Times reports that the city’s police department is beginning to tow hundreds of cars belonging to agencies such as the FBI.

In 2013, the city towed 1,855 cars that were illegally parked but had identifying plaques displayed in their windows. Of those, 311 were federal vehicles; 361 were police vehicles; and 242 were from the Fire Department.

Although fines aren’t paid, it is a time-consuming hassle. Agents must go to Police Headquarters and explain that they were on official business before going to retrieve the car in the tow pound.
