    NYC Ticket Says Man Ran Light in Rowboat

    WESTTOWN, N.Y. - According to New York City's traffic office, Russell Falkena ran a red light on Manhattan's West Side, in his rowboat.

    Falkena, 46, of Westtown in upstate Orange County, recently received a $50 traffic ticket in the mail for running a light in December. The notice included photographs of the vehicle and its license plate captured by traffic cameras that monitor Manhattan's intersections.

    It turns out the plate number on the ticket matches those on the registration for Falkena's aluminum rowboat, which he says hadn't left his yard in years.

    Plus, Falkena says, he was returning from a trip out West at the time he was supposedly ignoring the city's traffic laws.


    But this West Side story has a happy ending. A city official told the Middletown Times Herald-Record that the ticket will be dismissed.
