Bad enough paying 70 bucks to park at a one of Bronx Parking Development Company's taxpayer-subsidized garages around Yankee Stadium. Now it seems that the Quik Park run car parks are holding up fans and forcing them to pay twice...or they can't leave.“It’s not right,” said Manny Adamita, a Staten Island restaurateur who was recently forced to pay twice after a rain-shortened July 23 night game. “I’m never coming back to Yankee Stadium again. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth.”...When a [New York Post] reporter tried to validate his ticket Thursday in the same garage, the machine didn’t return the ticket until an attendant intervened. When he tried to leave with just a receipt, an attendant balked: “You cannot leave this garage without your ticket.”...When Adamita pulled into the River Avenue Quik Park across from Gate 8 for a game against the Texas Rangers, he took the ticket from an attendant, parked his car and then went to a validation machine. He said he fed his ticket and credit card into the machine, which returned his card and spit out a receipt — but not the original validation ticket.Five innings later, he attempted to leave. But attendants told him he needed his validation ticket and that his receipt wouldn’t do. He would have to pay a second time for a ticket to exit, they said.“They were really nasty,” he told The Post. “I could have physically choked someone at that moment, but I restrained myself.”Neither the company nor its partner, Quik Park, which operates the garages, returned calls seeking comment. The city Department of Consumer Affairs, which issues licenses to parking garages in the five boroughs, fielded 45 complaints against Quik Park-run garages last year. The Better Business Bureau gave Quik Park an “F” rating on its Web site.Follow us on Twitter for exclusive stories, Subscribe by Email, or Return Home
