Here’s a message we’re not used to seeing from NYPD: Double-parking is dangerous.
Reader Brendan Gray reports spotting this flyer in the window of a Dunkin’ Donuts on Eighth Avenue in Midtown a few days ago. NYPD tweeted it out  yesterday afternoon.
It’s just a flyer, and yeah, you could probably spot a few double-parked squad cars on your lunch break today. But this is also a huge step up from, say, the “safety tips for pedestrian” flyer  that 1 Police Plaza was distributing a few months ago. Things are changing at NYPD.
We’ll know NYPD has really turned the corner when police take on the scourge of double-parking by going to community boards and making the case for Park Smart metering .
