According to The New York Post, Jewish locals were shocked to discover notices on their cars which read "NO PARKING, FILM SHOOT" on the holy day, when driving is forbidden.

The notices bore the insignia of the New York Police Department, and they were placed on windshields of cars after the start of Rosh Hashana.

The locals feared that their vehicles would be towed, but they were happy to discover that this did not materialize.
