Remember when New York was plagued with malparkage by minions on UN duty claiming diplomatic immunity? Apparently the US Postal Service thinks that this was a model worth following:
In a Jan. 22 letter sent to both the city of East Cleveland, Ohio, and the company that operates the city’s photo-enforcement program, Postal Service attorney Jennifer S. Breslin says two school-zone speeding citations and five red-light infractions by postal trucks in December should be ignored… “[A]s you are probably aware, the Postal Service enjoys federal immunity from state and local regulation.”
That company, American Traffic Solutions, shot back a letter to Breslin noting that USPS procedures and case law make postal drivers accountable for their actions, and that future failures to follow traffic laws would result in more tickets.
Slyly, ATS sent two copies of its response: one by fax, the other via FedEx.
