The NYPD just landed on the naughty list.
Chip Cafiero, 60, parked his horse-drawn carriage -- ahem, sleigh -- in Bay Ridge last year as he delivered goodies to bright-eyed area kids.
Grinchy cops promptly slapped Cafiero's carriage and the Chevy Suburban next to it with fines for occupying more than one space.
"The agent saw me handing out toys to kids and walked over and slapped me with a fine anyways," St. Nick told the Daily News. "Has this city lost its heart?"
St. Nick tried to appeal to the Department of Finance but lost his battle with the city today despite public outcry that the ticket be overturned.
"Obviously not even Santa is exempt from traffic enforcement here in New York City," state Sen. Marty Golden (R-Bay Ridge) said.
The Fifth Avenue Merchants Association told the Daily News it would pick up Cafiero's tab.
Cafiero said the ticket wouldn't zap him of holiday cheer.
"The city can take my money," Santa said, "but they can't take my Christmas spirit."
