Peter: I suspect that now that you have raised the issue, there will be more than a trickle of complaints. Just walking around the neighborhood of Middle Village recently, I encountered two citizens disgusted by the broken muni-meters. One woman had parked on Eliot Avenue near 74th street and could not get the meter to accept her coins. She asked me if she was doing something wrong, but the problem was with the meter. Looking around, there weren't any other meters in sight, since this was a single block of metered parking spaces in an otherwise un-metered area. Another case was also on Eliot Avenue at 80th Street, where a man already knew the meter was not working but had no other choice than risk a ticket. I, too, wondered how far one was required to walk to find a meter that works. Thanks for the article. Hope the expose helps to correct the situation.
