Easton voided 3,534 parking tickets last year, but has no record of the appeals that were denied. I filed a Right-to-Know with Easton, seeking the identity of the persons who won their appeals. If I see one person has 10 or 15 tickets voided, that would tell me we have a problem. Unfortunately, the City responded to tell me it has no record of these voided tickets by name.
But the City does have records by license plate, and I got them yesterday.All 89 pages, which you can read yourself here if your suffer from insomnia .
It's too early for me to tell for sure if certain people are getting special favors, but it's beginning to look that way in these cases.
- A person driving a Toyota with plate number GPG2729 had 13 tickets voided in 2014.
- A dude driving an Accura with MA plate number KRATEST had 11 tickets forgiven.
- Another person driving a Chevy with NJ plate X6113C was able to poof 8 tickets.
In order to determine how many tickets were voided for a given plate number, I am going to go through the pdf file supplied. If any of you know of any program that will allow me to search words like GPG2729 within a pdf file, let me know. I am aware of the search feature in the Adobe reader, but it does not work.
