SEB Travel Tip of the Day: If you plan on visiting New York anytime soon be sure you only use any milk crates you happen to have in a fashion consistent with government regulations. Improper use may result in a ticket and fine.
NEW YORK—It appears the New York City budget crunch has police writing tickets for things that are moving and not moving.
A Bronx man told the Daily News that he was given a ticket for sitting on a milk crate outside the hair salon where he works on the Grand Councourse.
The ticket says “unauthorized use of a milk crate.” The fine was not immediately known.
It would seem that the New York Police Department are serious about cracking down on the rampant incidents of illegally parked asses on milk crates. Remember: Those crates are for milk, not your ass.
