Diplomats Owe NYC $16M in Unpaid Parking Tickets

Tuesday, 23 Sep 2014 07:38 AM

New York City is owed over $16 million in unpaid parking tickets issued to foreign diplomatic vehicles.

The Department of Finance says Egypt tops the list of more than 180 countries with nearly $2 million in outstanding debt as of this summer.

The Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/1rkS7nr ) says five countries owe more than $500,000: Nigeria, Indonesia, Brazil, Morocco and Pakistan.

Most of the debt is from tickets issued before 2002. Since then, the amount has been drastically reduced due to a city crackdown of unpaid parking tickets.

Egypt's U.N. mission spokesman tells the Journal he didn't have details about the issue.

Officials for Indonesia, Morocco and Pakistan declined to comment. A spokesman for Brazil says it asked the city for more information. A message left at Nigeria's U.N. mission wasn't returned.
