State park lands rules

State park lands rules

A printed page reads the riot act of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission. The PIPC is a unique hybrid entity authorized by both New York and New Jersey to enforce their own park laws. The PIPC laws are exceptionally vague, especially with regard to authority to enforce traffic and parking laws. Once I got a $10 ticket for parking on Collyer Ave in Rockland Lake State Park. However, Collyer Ave is actually a town road, not a park road, although it is completely surrounded by the state park. I beat the ticket because the cop didn't show, but I was prepared to show that the PIPC did not have authority to enforce a parking rule on a road outside of its control, despite that the road was inaccessible except by the park. Indeed, the PIPC's authority is only to enforce its own rules on land which it controls.
