Good old street cleaning days
ASP Rules changes are still in effect
Once upon a time, I participated in a campaign to make ASP Rules more tolerable, such as:
- Allowing drivers to stay in their cars until the street cleaner passed
- Permitting drivers to double park on the unrestricted side of the street until the cleaner passed
- Reducing the number of street cleaning days per week
But, finally, some meaningful changes went into effect in June, 2020.
Alternate Side Parking Reform
The next Press Release was in September 2020
Some street cleaning questions answered
When do I have to move my car?
For any residential street, regulations will be in effect only on the latest day posted on the sign on each side of the street.
Alternate side parking regulations are indicated by a “Sanitation Broom Symbol” on the street sign.
If one side of the street has ASP Tuesday and Friday it will be swept on Friday only.
If the other side of the street has regulations on Monday and Thursday from it will be swept on Thursday only.
Streets that have just one day of ASP regulations on each side will not change.
Does this apply to metered areas?
No. Daily sweeping in metered areas, including 30-minute parking restrictions Monday through Saturday in metered areas, will not change. Parking meters remain in effect.
Does this affect other parking regulations?
This change only affects street sweeping regulations, indicated by the Sanitation Broom Symbol. This change does not affect No Stopping or No Standing restrictions. Or, No Parking areas that do not have the Sanitation Broom Symbol, or any other posted restrictions.

These changes are one small step for NYC drivers, one giant leap for driver kind. Where have I heard these words before?
