With a little help from my friends
One of our great friends, Ricky, asked me a question about the parking rule displayed on the above sign . “Can I park in a metered parking space regulated by this sign after 5:30 PM? How long? Do I have to feed the toll on a poll?
I was about to answer Ricky, when I realized I had no clue. I thought to myself, is NYC going to allow the driving public to park for free after 5:30 PM?
Ricky called a nearby police precinct station, and was told essentially, don’t worry, be happy. You can park there for free until 8:30 AM
The next morning
Ricky sent me an Email the next morning, “I parked all night for free. No parking ticket! I’m was thrilled for our great friend Ricky; but I’m still worried it may be the old sleeping crocodile myth.
So, I sent a tweet on Twitter to the NYC_DOT (By the way, the DOT is very helpful and responds quickly to questions on Twitter). The answer is, “You can park for FREE!”
Wow. Free parking on the street. Amazing. Here’s a FREE Download of my exact conversation with the NYC_DOT. There are screen captures of the NYC_DOT’s response.
