Changing Rules Mid-Sabbath

This is really nothing new – the only thing newsworthy is that it happened on Saturday morning, thereby catching a lot of Hasidim unawares and unable to move their cars. But DOT often changes signs, and the traffic agents always seem to follow the maintenance trucks like a pack of hyenas, ready to scavenge a few more tickets to make their monthly quota. This seems to be a particularly common occurrence in Williamsburg, where parking regulations change more frequently due to commercial changes and, um, “missing” parking signs.
Luckily, if you park your car legally and come to find it to now be parked illegally, you can *usually* get out of the ticket – Jew or Gentile. Unless, you know, its a week later.
