NEW YORK - It would be an understatement to say traffic agents aren't well-liked on the congested streets of New York.

While they patrol for parking violations and write traffic tickets, they are routinely spit on and yelled at by angry car owners or passers-by, and, at least once, even cracked on the back of the head with a hammer.

This had to be done. I have seen some people go off on them and its only a matter of time before one of them gets seriously hurt. Its also only fair for the city to protect them. They are the ones with the unrealistic demands which forces these officers to nitpick at any little thing.
