No standing- no parking in NYC means no halting your chariot
C’mon man, how can no standing and no parking mean the same thing, i.e. no stopping?
Because in the wacky world of NYC parking tickets, if you halt your vehicle alongside the curb [*], you are standing and parking. The difference between the two is the activity you can perform in a no parking zone and a no standing zone.
You can stop, drop-off or pick up people, and skedaddle in a no standing zone. In a no parking zone, you can stop, drop-off or pick-up people and property, and skedaddle in no parking zone.[*Larry’s note: If you halt your car on the roadway side of a vehicle stopped, standing, or parked alongside the curb, you are “double parking.” I’ll write more about double parking in another blog post].
