From the NY Post:
A Bronx business owner forced to pay a $115 ticket for parking in a bike lane that doesn’t exist — after losing two appeals — will get a refund, officials told The Post.
After The Post exposed the unfair citation, red-faced officials at the Department of Finance admitted the ticket should never have been written, said City Councilman James Vacca, whose district includes the nonexistent bike lane at 1820 Hone Ave. in Mott Haven.
“They researched it and went back and forth with the Police Department,” said Vacca. “They admitted the ticket was written in error.”
Phyllis Cannon — who paid the ticket on July 2 after five months of fighting to avoid getting hit with late fees — will receive a refund in the mail shortly, said Vacca.
