1. You haven’t responded to my last comment. Can you address the points I raised?
2. I just noticed this comment you made 6 months ago, on the below thread, saying you aren’t a member of Hatzalah since you were denied membership. What changed, as you now indicate you are a member?November 20, 2012 3:22 am at 3:22 am #10313572scentsParticipant
1. Will H do anything.
I can’t answer for sure, as these stuff are not disclosed, however understanding the way the organization operates it is very likely that some thing will happen.
Many complaints will definitely have an effect. It’s a disciplined organization, the will take measures to make sure members are disciplined.
Best would be to speak to a coordinator. Call the office and let ask to,speak to a coordinator.
2. Refuse to comment.November 20, 2012 6:11 am at 6:11 am #1031358real-briskerMember

I am not sure if anyone from this post will read this now but since I never used this site until now I want to clarify a few things about this topic.
1) VAS plates do not give you any privilege but yo are correct, traffic officers look the other way for parking, That being said, there are many abuse of parking, mainly in Brooklyn with all sorts of vehicles, that are a major Chillul Hashem(desecration of G-D).
Saying that they are abusing privileges is wrong on this issue since you are allowed to park at most locations with the PLACAD, not the plates. Where abuse DOES come in, is when they turn the placard over and cover the borough the placard covers so they can park in Manhattan or Queens if they are a Brooklyn member. The placards are meant for the volunteer to park close by to go on calls. If you are going into the city for dinner or a show, when you are no going on a call, yes, then you are abusing the privilege and relying on the fact that the police and traffic PD will not issue tickets when they see that. Many cops will though look at placards that are upside down, So beware!
What is being abused or plain stupid, is the ORANGE EZ pass covers. Yes, it is not illegal because it is a cover, but there is no reason to use it unless you are trying to pretend you are a cop. Keep in mind, it is much thicker than the real EZ pass so most cops if they look no it is fake and you open the door for criminal impersonation. Having them and parking at a fire hydrant to run into schul is a big chutzpa because as a first responder, you should understand even more so, that yo put lives at risk if there were to be a fire and your vehicle is blocking the fire hydrant. There is no excuse to be at a fire hydrant. ZERO!
It is however legal to park at a fire hydrant if you are IN your vehicle under the DMV code during the day, so double parking in front of one because you worry about a ticket is plain stupid because double parking is an automatic ticket. Unfortunately, in flatbush and boro park, it is abused by many, not just by VAS plat holders.
As for the lights and sirens, it is an infraction to have them on if you are not authorized in doing so and a crime to use them to commit a crime. If you use them to go through lights, in theory you are not breaking any penal code but an infraction under the VTL code. But a cop can arrest you and make you go through the system just to make you pay.
I hope that clears this up!August 22, 2014 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1031376Francorachel3Participant
No one is asking the wives to take the license plates off. What we are asking them is DO NOT USE THE PLATES TO BREAK THE LAW by parking illegally at No Standing, no parking signs, and not putting money in the muni meters! This is an Aveira and I hope they gets ticketed.they’re taking away spots from real Handicapped people who ad allowed to park there with their legitimate handicapped plates.September 7, 2014 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm #1031378Yonkar (Joseph)Member
If the point being made by some here that VAS plates are nothing more than a vanity plate entitling the bearer no more parking or driving privileges than any other run of the mill driver without any special plate is to be accepted (much like NY Volunteer Firefighter vanity license plates on a private vehicle simply mean the car owner happens to be a volunteer firefighter but that this private vehicle is not necessarily used for that purpose and is entitled to no privileges and the same with Army Veteran plates or Dentist or Physician vanity plates), then by extension that argument can be naturally extended to meaning that there is no objections to someone temporarily joining a tiny volunteer ambulance service for a very short period so he can qualify for VAS plates (which is nothing more than vanity anyways).September 7, 2014 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #10313792scentsParticipant
I am not really sure to what you are responding, the last time i commented here was a while ago..
However of course no one should break the law as it is illegal and is a big chillul hashem.
On the other hand, people should be dan lkaf z’chus. I recently got yelled at for using lights and sirens “just to pass a busy intersection”, someone was cursing and yelling at me through their open window, do I really owe this person an explanation? that the parent of a child choking called back to cancel, so should i keep my lights on? or what else should I have done? What is a different unit responded that he if closer, should I not cancel? This happens quiet often.
I am sure that there are some people that break the law, however they are not the majority, Hatzolah would never tolerate this, Hatzolah is under a lot of scrutiny and there are a lot of people that would pounce on any opportunity to inform and close down hatzolah.
