November 1, 2017 D.A. McMahon Launches Awareness Campaign to Lower Number of Illegally Registered Vehicles Parked on Staten Island’s Streets Today, District Attorney Michael E. McMahon launched an awareness campaign to help lower the number of illegally registered vehicles parked on Staten Island’s streets by placing informational “tickets” on the windshields of vehicles registered outside of New York State. The mock tickets do not carry any penalty – just a simple message: “Welcome to Staten Island! If you are just visiting us, we hope you enjoy your stay! If you live on Staten Island, you must register this vehicle in New York State”. The goal of this effort is similarly simple: to remind car owners to properly register their vehicles by instructing them on how to do so and what consequences can come from illegal registration.
