Are NYC Sanitation Agents Issuing Bogus Tickets?

Assemblyman Dov Hikind believes that city sanitation workers have issued residents fraudulent tickets and he's been supplied with video evidence to try and prove the charge. At a news conference on Monday, Hikind played three surveillance tapes where sanitation workers allegedly wrote up residents for bogus infractions. One of the videos purportedly shows an agent issue a $100 ticket after merely kicking black garbage cans outside a Brooklyn man's home. But the agent left behind a note detailing the man's complete inability to properly recycle."If it is determined that the summonses were improperly served, appropriate actions will be taken,” said a spokesman for the sanitation agency.
