The warning’s use of the words “it’s our time again” hints that cops don’t expect the crackdown to last forever. Parking placard abuse is a long-standing issue in the city, and previous efforts to deal with the problem have fizzled.

“Due to new laws passed by the city council on placard abuse, multiple units are tasked to enforce and document the abusers by taking photos of cars, plates and placards to record and submit to DOI!” the message continues.

The email goes on to warn cops that they face separate tickets for parking violations and misuse of city-issued placards if they’re caught.

“Cant [sic] stress this enough for you to tell your personnel that this will commence on Monday 1/6/2020! Be Safe!” the e-mail concludes.

The crackdown includes introducing a new windshield decal that cannot be transferred from vehicle to vehicle. There are more than 125,000 parking placards across New York City . However, on Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a crackdown on those who abuse the placard system.

In November, the City Council passed a package of bills aimed at cracking down on drivers who abuse the power of the placard to park in bike lanes and ignore other rules of the road.

“Neighborhoods across the city are plagued with cars that park with impunity, blocking sidewalks and bike lanes, in front of hydrants, double-parking," Council Speaker Corey Johnson said when the bills were passed. “We’ve tolerated it for years as one of those unchangeable facts of life in New York City, but those days are hopefully over.”

The NYPD was empowered to do sweeps targeting illegal use of placards at 50 of the sites that get the most complaints and summonses in the city. The sweeps are set to come once a week for six months, starting this month.

The warning email circulating among cops includes a list of addresses and intersections in every borough except Staten Island that might be targeted Monday.

As part of the Council’s placard abuse crackdown, official city vehicles were barred from obstructing cycling lanes and fire hydrants, the fine for unauthorized or fraudulent parking permits was doubled and the NYPD was ordered to electronically track placards.

Asked for comment about the cops’ email, Corey Johnson’s spokeswoman Jennifer Fermino said, “The Council is proud of passing tough legislation to stop the flouting of our laws."
