Yang, Adams feud over placard abuse


Mayoral hopeful Andrew Yang rolled out a plan to combat placard abuse on Thursday, while taking a not-so-subtle dig at his rival, Borough President Eric Adams. 

The eccentric candidate promised to crack down on illegal parking during a press conference at Cadman Plaza — where the Beep has been criticized for printing parking placards that allow his employees to leave their private vehicles in the park. The practice of placard abuse has long been a topic of ire among transit advocates, who bemoan city workers using the signs to park in illegal spots — such as fire hydrants, bike lanes, bus stops, and more — without receiving a ticket.
