On E39 driving towards to Lexington Ave, green light with more than 25 Sec left, it seemed a little crowed in the fornt, but was still moving.
Passed the Lexington Ave, and got jamed on the crosswalk with front wheels, traffic was still slowly moving, light turned red, two rear wheels
was on the crosswalk. at the very same second, one police and one traffic police (traffic agent-formerly known as "brownies") showed up from the right
corner, the traffice police walked to the front of my vehicle scanned my registeration with her scanner and telling me you are getting a summon at the
same time. 5 seconds later a summon was printed and dispalyed on my windshield. Under parking violation 4-08(e)(12), 115$ with no points.
The car behind mine got stopped by the police, Dude was asked to pull over, I saw he was getting his driver license out.
The whole process took less than 2 minute !

I love this city !

Rule is you never enter the intersection unless you can clearly see that you can safely cross to the other side and not block cross traffic. Always stay on he other side until you have room. Even if you have to wait 15 lights. That’s how you gotta play the traffic game.
