NYC has embedded sensors throughout the streets of midtown in order to monitor and control the flow of traffic.

In an only-in-New-York kind of story, the plague of parking placards continues unabated.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with the phenomenon, parking placards let people park in places where you’re not supposed to park.

In a place like Manhattan, where legitimate street parking is in short supply, placards can save you literally hundreds of dollars a month on tickets and garage parking.

The Daily News and Transportation Alternatives have found that a fake placard, created in under 30 minutes in Photoshop and laminated, was good enough to pass muster and get parking all over town.
