Bogus No Parking Signs Result in Towed Cars

NEW YORK - Several Brooklyn residents woke up to find their street empty — because someone had posted a No Parking sign and police had towed their rides.

The sign, which bans parking on a street in the DUMBO neighborhood from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, mysteriously appeared Monday or Tuesday, residents said, and then police started ticketing and towing cars parked there.

But the Department of Transportation says there aren't any parking restrictions in the area and it doesn't know who posted the placard, which looks official. (Associated Press) Stats for No Parking Prank Trending: Older & Warm
