NYPD cracking down on officers, officials who are parking illegally in the Bronx

The NYPD is cracking down on members of the force and government officials who they say are using police permits to park illegally.

NYPD officials say the illegal parking is causing major traffic tie-ups near the Bronx Criminal Courthouse. Complaints from the community prompted the NYPD to begin taking the matter seriously.

Cars with permits blocking crosswalks, bus stops and no standing zones will be towed.
