No one has the right to think that what they are doing is more important than someone else. Maybe the person you blocked in needed to go to chemo? I don't think nurses should be exempt is my point. In our society there are rules, we all need to follow them to prevent chaos. Parking is annoying, I grew up in the city, but you need to plan for that.MJB2010 you have a right to your own opinion...my point is only that nurses should be exempt while ON DUTY and visiting patients.

- 3Aug 4, '12 by Rose_Queen GuideNurses are not above the law. Ambulances have rights over private citizens because they are responding to emergencies. You may be a nurse providing care, but generally home care is not emergency care. Public transportation is plentiful in NYC, take advantage of it if you can't find parking on a routine base. Your poll is a bit biased, but I picked the last option anyway.

If I had access to the NYC public transit system, I'd sell my car for scrap.
- 1Aug 4, '12 by MomRN0913I just got my first ticket as a visiting nurse. Street cleaning rules. My option was to get out of the house by a certain time, or park really far in the ghetto with shady characters on the street corners. I got out 20 min past the parking time, and 5 minutes before that was when I was issued the ticket. I think it sucks. I believe in certain circumstances if we had a plaque or sticker of some sort, we should not get ticketed. However, I am glad I risked the ticket instead of my safety.
