Is Sunday, July 3, 2011, a happy parking holiday in NYC?
I’m planning on a happy parking holiday in NYC on Sunday, July 3, 2011, and Monday, July 4th. I do not wish to receive an evil orange epistle under my windshield wiper. So, I’m going to make sure I know the parking rules for Sundays and holidays.
Sunday parking rules are in effect on Sunday, July 3, 2011. In accordance with legislation enacted by the City Council, parking meters and muni-meters no longer have to be paid on Sundays. Plus, you only have to obey parking signs that are in effect all days/all times. Or, specifically, prohibit parking on Sunday.
Here is one of my prior blog posts about the difference between Major Legal Holidays, Legal Holidays, and Sunday parking rules. You may wish to check it out. “The Truth about Parking Rules for Holidays and Sundays”
Monday, July 4, 2011
Monday, July 4th is a major legal holiday according to the parking gods of NYC. On major legal holidays, stopping, standing, and parking is permitted, except in areas where stopping, standing, and parking rules are in effect 7 days a week (for example, “No Standing Anytime”).
Parking meters and ASP rules are not in effect on major legal holidays.
Here’s a current (2021) ASP Rules Suspension Calendar. Just click on the link.
Happy holiday parking in NYC can be very tricky. Especially when a holiday falls on a Sunday.
This year the 4th of July lands on a Monday. It is a major legal parking holiday. But, how about July 3rd. It falls on a Sunday. Although July 3rd is not a legal or major legal parking holiday, it does fall on a Sunday. Ergo, Sunday parking rules are in effect. Another happy holiday parking day for the driving public.
Life is good!
