From Department of Sanitation regulations:

It is illegal for any person to affix any handbill, poster, notice, sign, advertisement, sticker or other printed material upon any tree by any means.  In addition, affixing any handbill, poster, notice, sign, advertisement, sticker or other printed material upon a tree by means of nailing or piercing the tree by any method shall have an additional penalty imposed equal to the amount of the original penalty.  There is a rebuttable presumption that the person whose name, telephone number, or other identifying information appears on any handbill, poster, notice, sign, advertisement, sticker, or other printed material on any item or structure is in violation.  Every handbill, poster, notice, sign, advertisement, sticker or other printed material shall be deemed a separate violation.  Anyone found to have violated this provision, in addition to any penalty imposed, shall be responsible for the cost of the removal of the unauthorized postings.

Illegally parked car on Pacific at 6th Avenue

Location: 
South side of Pacific Street at 6th Avenue
When: 
February 1, 2012 - 7:30pm

A White Escalade is parked on the south side of Pacific at 6th Avenue in a no standing zone.  The same car also regularly parks in the no standing zone on the 6th Avenue Bridge.  
The owner of the vehicle was talking to someone from Turner Construction (perhaps a foreman?) in front of the Barclays Center construction entrance.   I politely asked the owner of the vehicle to move and he refused.  He told me to call the police.
The license plate of the vehicle is BRX-5206.
