New York's Scofflaws Mapped For Your Enjoyment

New, 1 comment

Cops wrote 348,851 "pink slip" summons in New York City in 2011—issued for a variety of quality of life infractions like reckless driving, drinking in public, riding a bike on a sidewalk, and making unreasonable noise. Less-publicized infractions: littering of liquids and failure to comply with signs in park. The New York World, a non-profit publication from The Columbia Journalism School, gathered all of the pink slip ticket information and created a cool interactive map that allows visitors to drill down and see the relative number of tickets issued by offense and neighborhood. Throwaway fun fact: Williamsburg had the highest number of tickets for riding bikes on sidewalk and open containers of alcohol. Hipsters!
