Do you dare to dream about eliminating NYC parking tickets for violating Alternate Side Parking Rules?
I have this recurring nightmare about a mad scientist tormenting the NYC driving community by experimenting with changes to Alternate Side Parking Rules. I wake up in a cold sweat only to find nothing has changed. Do you remember the 2008 experiment in Park Slope?. How about hypnotizing a kind member of the NYC Council to sponsor a Bill proposing significant changes in the ASP rules race for a space, which has never seen the light of day? Or, the “Great Brooklyn Experiment.”
Did you read the touching NY Times article entitled, ” A Quiet Neighbor, a Fading Sports Car, and a Death Announced by Parking Tickets, telling a story about a neighborhood alerted to a resident’s death by NYC parking tickets for violating the sacrosanct alternate side parking rules accumulating on the windshield of his car:
“But when the suspension of the rules ended on July 14, the Alfa sat where it was parked, near the corner of Plaza Street West and Lincoln Place. Parking tickets appeared on the windshield, and residents began to wonder what had become of the nice man with the beret.
As August began to wane, it was still there. But someone had scrawled some news on one of the faded orange ticket envelopes: “The man is dead.”
Will my recurring NYC parking ticket nightmare ever end?
I am, for the most part, a very positive, optimistic person. But, I believe there is a better chance of the Mets winning the World Series than NYC significantly reducing the burden of ASP parking rules.
What do you think? I would love to learn how you solve your recurring nightmare of racing to your space in time to avoid an NYC parking ticket? Do you double-park your car on the unrestricted side of the street? Do you get NYC parking tickets when you double-park on ASP rules days>
