New York, NY - With records showing a 32% reduction in moving violations being written in Williamsburg’s Hasidic neighborhoods over the first nine months of the de Blasio administration, a former city Liaison claims it’s because the new mayor is “pandering” to the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community to keep its vote.

NTPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1ZNYH6d) reports that NYPD records show 7,077 tickets have been written so far in 2015 in the 90th Precinct, a marked decrease from the the 10,365 handed out during the same period in 2013 when Mayor Bloomberg was still in office.

The former Liaison says that the reduction is no accident, and that’s it’s because de Blasio wants to hold onto the 70,000 ultra-Orthodox Jewish block that resides the neighborhoods.

“They pander and he gives them a lot of what they want,” a former mayoral liaison said. “De Blasio is known to have tight ties to the Hasidic community.”

The “NYPD issues tickets . . . without regard to neighborhoods,” said de Blasio spokeswoman Karen Hinton.

This report might be accurate but the real reason why tickets are down is because 35% drivers do more walking because of the parking problem in New Wmsbg. and now with Skillman St. loosing another few hundres spaces due to new NO Parking signs the tickets will be reduced even more.
Its very simple MATH...Less driving= Less Tickets

Before listening to one word this muckraker says, if like to know his name and why he is a 'former'.
No-name statements carry as much weight as unsigned pashkevilin.

On the contrary Bloomberg was out to harass the Orthodox Jews, constantly with the ticket blitz and gotchya tactics and many other regulations.

When it went up 32% under Bloomberg it wasn't anti-semitism, so when it adjusts back to prior stats its not because of pandering. Based on my personal experience, quotas went down in general.

Does anyone know the statistics...there are more yuppies in wmsbg now than Chasidic jews. Just another anti-Semite baring his fangs.
Tickets are down because parkinghas become so difficult it's easier to just walk and/or use the train to get around.
