Albany's biggest parking ticket scofflaws

Let three of these slip and the city considers you a scofflaw.

So when we were looking up info on the Albany Parking Ticket Amnesty, we noticed a link at the bottom of the Parking Violations page: "CITY OF ALBANY TOP 20 SCOFFLAWS." And what do you know, there are some people who really need amnesty.

The list is after the jump.

The Parking Violations Bureau tells us this is a list of the 20 people (21, actually) with the highest number of outstanding tickets (that's why some who owe more are lower on the list.) And by the way, the city considers anyone with three or more outstanding tickets to be a scofflaw.

Wondering if you're in danger of ending up on the list? The city has posted a list of people with outstanding tickets. But it comes with a catch: Parking Violations Bureau says it doesn't update very often.

I can't believe it! Pantaloons is on that list.... her real name is Janine Philpot.

This is kinda creepy.

I thought that the city booted you after 2 unpaid tickets. Are these people perma-booted, or just really good at hiding their cars?

Of course, I checked the list of outstanding tickets for the names of my friends who exclaim, after being ticketed, "I'm not paying this!" while ripping the ticket into shreds. I was always amazed at their rebellion and lack of fear for the boot. Apparently, they're not so rebellious after all. They so pay.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

Bruce Fence Company came through for me in a big way last spring. Another local fence company gave me a price and a date and then faded away. (Perhaps a bigger job came along, but have the decency to call.) Needless, to say this failure to keep the date as promised created frustration with the neighbor on the other side of the fence. From my first telephone contact with Bruce to my first visit in their office and then through to completion of the job, every interaction was friendly and professional. The entire transaction went like clockwork.
