Not a completely accurate statement. True that a "law" is a statute enacted by a state. But, once government agencies duly adopt regulations (a/k/a rules) in accordance with that agency's enabling statute and/or the applicable state or federal administrative procedure act, those regulations are fully enforceable and have the full force and effect of a law. So the distinction is essentially moot.Tommy Meehan wrote: But it is a rule not a law. To be an actual law either New York State or New Jersey's legislature would have to write a bill banning all photograpy of PATH equipment and pass it into law.
As to the other post, stating that the PA cannot prohibit photos of PATH from vantage points outside of PA property, that is correct. However, the regulation does not contain that broad proscription, but rather is limited by Section II which states in pertinent part: "These rules regulate conduct on any portion of the PATH, including the Center, unless reference is made to any specific portion of PATH . . ." Thus *all* of the PATH regulations apply only to PATH property. So the regulations by their specific language do not attempt to regulate photography from outside the PATH system.
Curiously, it appears that the sections of the PATH regulations linked in the above post do not contain any penalties for violations of any of the rules, other than under III(C) denial of permission to use PATH property.
