NEW YORK (OCN) — While police were undercover in Chinatown seeking counterfeit goods, they discovered 27-year-old Lawrence Bush alledgedy selling air freshener in the shape of handicap stickers which could be used by drivers to park illegally in handicap zones according to officials.
If that wasn’t enough, Bush has numerous unpaid parking tickets which caused his drivers license to become suspended earlier this year and his van towed by police after his arrest.
What would happen if a buyer installed the airfreshner in their vehicle? While the vehicle is moving, the driver could be pulled over and issued a summons for “obstruction of view” if it is hanging off the rear view mirror. While parked, if this was in a designated handicap spot, the air freshener would be consider a “burglar tool” and a summons issued for theft of services. Along with the summons, the vehicle risk being towed away to make room for those needing the spot.
