The New York City Department of Buildings was taking a closer look at smaller construction sites throughout the city, and contractors that traditionally didn't undergo such tough scrutiny were finding it doesn't pay to cut corners.

For ten hours over two days, investigators from the DOB followed and videotaped a man whom they believe was illegally installing plumbing without a license. An investigator on the case who did not want to be identified said the new level of enforcement was quite unexpected.

"I don't think they are aware that anybody is watching so when we walk in they are quite frankly surprised," the investigator said. He confronts the man, who admits he does not have a license, the job is shut down, and the worker's truck is towed, tools and all.

Great Story, maybe the gov. thought of a way to earn more money by Enforcing the laws they already have, and get the suckers to pay. Also get the licensed guys off the couch and back to work.
