Williamsburg Jews: The Chosen People For Tickets 

Passover started at sundown Monday night and continues until next Tuesday, but somebody forgot to explain the whole holiday-starting-at-sundown concept to the NYPD. Though the community had arranged for the suspension of parking rules for the first two days of the Jewish holiday, the NYPD got confused and thought that meant Monday and Tuesday. You can see where this is going.

Naturally the police blitzed Williamsburg yesterday, towing more than 41 cars and handing out more than 100 summonses. You'd think after the first few cars somebody would have explained the situation to cops...but then again, what an easy way to make your quotas! We imagine this will make for an entertaining scene at traffic court in a few weeks—or are religious holidays a valid excuse on the city's new hearings by web?
