Doctor and dentist parking rule
The doctor and dentist parking rule states:
“Where parking is prohibited by signs, but not where stopping or standing is prohibited, a duly licensed physician or dentist may park his/her motor vehicle, identified by “MD,” “OP” or “DDS” New York registration plates, on a roadway adjacent to hospitals or clinics for a period not to exceed three hours. For the purposes of this paragraph, only those portions of a roadway corresponding to the shaded areas on the diagrams below shall be considered adjacent to a hospital or clinic. At other locations where parking is prohibited by signs, but not where stopping or standing is prohibited, a duly licensed physician may park his/her motor vehicle, identified by “MD” or “OP” New York registration plates, for a period not to exceed one hour while actually attending to a patient in the immediate vicinity.” [See 4-08(m)(4)].
The shaded areas in the diagram below represent legal parking spaces.
