New York City Declares A Towing "Blitz" Against Its Own Citizens photo

You would think a career politician like NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly would be a little more skillful at choosing his words, unless the New York Post actually placed words in Kelly's mouth in its recent article...

But according to the New York Post, "about 150 cops and several tow trucks" were set to begin a "ticketing and towing blitz" on June 18, 2008, in lower Manhattan. Furthermore, this was the second blitz in three months.

Acting as though fake placards were common (I highly doubt it) Commissioner Kelly used a radio address to warn residents against using the fake parking credentials. defines "blitz" as follows:


1.) An overwhelming all-out attack, especially a swift ground attack using armored units and air support.

2.) An intensive aerial bombing.

3.) Any swift, vigorous attack, barrage....

OK, yeah, you get the idea. So New York City is launching a "blitz" against its citizens struggling to find places to park their cars, and trying to justify it with wild-eyed talk of some citizens who supposedly use "fake placards."

Commissioner Ray Kelly says "blitz."

I say "abuse and predatory towing practices."
