From the Daily News:
The hot dog vendor who served Mayor Bloomberg and the British prime minister had some frank words for City Hall Thursday.
Abdus Salam, 41, bad-mouthed the mayor and city agencies for slapping vendors with frivolous fines that eat up profits.
"A lot of people get tickets for $1,000," Salam griped to the Daily News. "You get a $1,000 ticket, you can't work anymore."
The Brooklyn resident, who sells $2 wieners outside Penn Station, said he had to pay $400 for three tickets in the past year.
The city Health Department issued him one for not having wet wipes. The police gave him one for stacking his soda cans too high and another for stationing his cart too far from the curb.
