No Standing tickets can be eliminated
I hate No Standing tickets. They are expensive ($115) and unnecessary, if you are vigilant and follow these 7 principles.
1. A general no standing sign is red with arrows in both directions. There only has to be one of these nasty parking signs on an entire block. Do a recon of the block before you park with a special eye out for red no standing signs
2. Don’t ignore no standing authorized vehicles only, unless you are driving an authorized vehicle
3. Don’t park in no standing zones that allow commercial vehicles to load and unload…unless your chariot is a commercial vehicle loading and unloading
4. Check out the arrows on the no standing sign. If they’re aimed at you, move along…quickly.
5. A parking sign regulates the curb space in the direction of the arrow(s) at the bottom of the sign until the next parking sign, or if none, the end of the block
6.You are not standing if you stop temporarily to pick up or discharge a passenger, and leaveClick To TweetYou are not standing if you stop temporarily to pick up or discharge a passenger, and leave
7. If you are a commercial vehicle, and find yourself in a no standing zone to complete your mission, leave immediately. A commercial vehicle cannot, will not, and should not, ever, never stop, stand or park in a no standing zone
How many no standing tickets were issued in fiscal year 2014?
There is an incredible, albeit underutilized, source of NYC data. If you are in need of endless information about a subject NYC tracks, NYC Open Date is for you.
Here are some highlights of Larry’s journey into Data Land
1. Created s data set of information about NYC parking tickets (just a snapshot of the data set)
2. Filtered out a data subset of no standing tickets issued in fiscal year 2014
3. The filtered subset of No Standing tickets (VC 14) for fiscal year 2014 (just a snapshot)
4. Google helped by adding my data set to a landing page
