Their excuse is going to be: it’s a very hard time right now for us financially, we need all the money that we can get…

How does someone park on Eastern Parkway if they are running to a call. Also were there lights flashing?

Apparently you dont live in ch, hatzolah members always park there when they grab the ambulance, and lots of times dont leave their lights flashing as not to drain the cars battery.

If an ambulance is needed, they take their own car to where the ambulance is parked, park their car (with VAS license plates and a EMT placard on the dashboard) there, and jump into the ambulance, which has everything they’ll need to keep the person alive hopefully until they get to the hospital.

When ppl call the police because of minyanim etc. (Which are 100%wrong to make at this time) they dont discriminate and everyone suffers.

The newyork driver manual clearly states that emergency vehicles are allowed to drive the wrong way on a one way street

WRONG. Emergency vehicles are permitted to violate street regulations ONLY when operating on an emergency. Giving out a ticket is NOT an emergency! (Courts have extended this to fire engines and ambulances “returning” to their home base, but only because they need to be ready for the next emergency.)

“You must yield the right-of-way to fire, ambulance, police and other authorized emergency vehicles WHEN THEY RESPOND TO EMERGENCIES.” New York State, Department of Motor Vehicles, Driver’s Manual, p. 34 (emphasis added). See also, NYS motor vehicle law.

Wrong way
Guest
Wrong way

Correct the Sheriff & Road Patrol Vehicles are on the wrong way on Eastern Parkway to give a ticket, which giving a ticket is Not a emergency, Especially its Not a emergency to give a ticket to a EMT or Paramedic on a Emergency Call likely in middle of saving someones life during this Corona Epidemic.

You guys haven’t got a clue 🤷‍♀️ As long as the sheriff got them off the streets to stop the spread I’m happy. Follow the law & they wouldn’t have to be there.

Not condoning the idiots that keep gathering but we are our own worst enemy. This is what happens when you call the city on your own the dont care to tell ppl apart and will punish everyone, you keep your social distancing if others dont dont be holier then thao in other parts of Brooklyn other religions are gathering they just dont tell on one another

to Mr. Illiterate:

What part of LARGE GATHERINGS INCREASE THE SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS don’t you understand? If you want to set up a large minyan or a l’chaim, expect to be reported. The Rabbonim have assured these gatherings and warned everyone to follow the law. If you don’t you deserve to be reported. I don’t want to get sick because you are infected but touch all manner of things that others have to touch (eg a worker in a grocery store.) Yes, it is transmitted that easily. As for this ticketing: rip them up. And consider maybe not attending to these pillars… Read more »

Invalid ticket!
Guest
Invalid ticket!

Technically he’s not parked outside 770,
He’s parked outside 788.
Which makes the ticket invalid, since there’s a mistake on it…

Those low lifes knew exactly what they were doing and were laughing while writing tickets, they should be fired immediately
They are outright jew haters.

Comments like yours don’t help, they only fuel distrust and ignorance.

It is possible the Sheriff Dept. doesn’t have the same understanding of why people rather call Hatzalah services instead of 911. And perhaps they are not informed why all the volunteers are needed. They are not from the 71st Precinct and are doing their jobs.

I’m sure the tickets will be dismissed once the volunteers respond to them.

Designed Parking Area

Designed Parking Area

That area is a Designed Parking area for Emergency EMT Vehicles, There are several Street Signs on the side of the street for about one forth of the block stating that, In that alone the tickets should immediately be dismissed

Perhaps that any NYC Sheriff Officers and Road Patrol Officers that are assigned in the NYPD 71st Precinct area, before Driving the Streets they should all get a quick 5 minutes rundown and explanation of the area etc by 71st Precinct Detective Vinny Martinos (he is amazing and goes above and beyond to help everyone in this community)
If this happens if will Avoid all future problems like this and other problems that may happen,
I would suggest that the 77th Precinct do this as well.

These were not hatzola ambulances

These were not hatzola ambulances

Let’s work with the possibility that this was just a misunderstanding, that they thought these were some regular cars before trying to turn this into some big conspiracy that they are just out to get us
