Did Coke have a choice about ignoring parking rules?
This is a super, terrific video because it raises core issues about NYC parking rules and the challenges faced by businesses delivering their products and services to customers. In order to make a delivery to a customer, the Coke truck parked in a NO STANDING zone. The NYC parking rules prohibit commercial vehicles from making deliveries in NO STANDING zones. Commercial vehicles ARE permitted to make deliveries in:
- NO PARKING ZONES
- Ignore Street Cleaning Rules
- Double park outside of Midtown
- Park for a reasonable amount of time after a parking meter expires
Did Coca-cola make a business decision to deliver Coke to their customers, regardless of the cost of parking tickets? Or, is more training necessary to educate drivers about NYC parking rules, because the driver said the truck was parked LEGALLY, when in fact, the truck parked ILLEGALLY in a NO STANDING zone (pause the video at the 0.06 second mark, and you’ll notice a bright, red NO STANDING sign on the pole, with arrows pointing in both directions)?
