East Hampton Traffic Cops: Scam or Necessity?

This video about the East Hampton Village Police Department’s parking ticket practices went up on YouTube’s TRUTHstreammedia channel on August 1 after the creator received an expensive fine for exceeding parking limits in town. He calls the system, with its multiple dedicated Traffic Control Officers, “The most blatant revenue generation scam ever.”

It seems like a lot of the YouTube commenters agree. What do you think? Is East Hampton Village protecting us from never EVER finding a parking space during the summer season, or is this indeed a scam for generating revenue?
