UncivilServants.org shut down

UncivilServants.org has been shut down.

Thank you for your efforts in combating placard abuse -- we wouldn't have been able to make such progress without you!

We, in partnership with Streetsblog, are fighting the problem by asking New Yorkers to submit photos of parking placard abuse. Submit your photos to tips@streetsblog.

Your photo(s) must include:

  1. the violation in context (i.e. car parked on sidewalk)
  2. any signs and placards

Use your best judgment -- people get sensitive about their car being photographed, especially when they are caught breaking the law. Stay safe.
