Can you identify all the No Standing zones in NYC?
Learning is relentless repetition, and we have spent beaucoup de time learning about the activity you can do in a no standing area, without being shackled by a parking ticket. In You can:
[alert type=”success” icon-size=”hide-icon”]stop temporarily to drop off and pick up people, but not packages…In other words, stop, drop or pick up people and go[/alert]
By now, this lesson is parking ticket 101 when the parking area has a visible sign that specifically states No Standing. For example, No Standing Mon-Fri, 7A-4P. But what if there isn’t a visible parking sign identifying a No Standing zone; or what if a visible parking sign doesn’t contain the words, No Standing? How do you know it’s a No Standing zone?
How to identify an invisible no standing area
Remember in elementary school learning the multiplication tables… 7 x 8 = 56? It was simply memorization. You had to memorize the different numerical combinations to learn your multiplication tables…No way around it. Well, it’s the same with learning how to identify invisible No Standing zones.
Here is a list of invisible No Standing areas see page iv where you can stop temporarily to drop off or pick up people, even though there is no visible No Standing sign :
- Double parking (minority opinion…and mine)
- Bus lanes
- Railroad crossings
- Safety Zones
- Pedestrian ramps
Did you realize all the above zones were No Standing zones?
How about where parking signs are posted
Memorization! Here’s a list of No Standing zones:
- Snow emergency
- Taxi stand
- Bus stop
- No standing except authorized vehicles
- No standing except trucks loading and unloading
- Hotel loading zone
- Commuter van stop
- For-hire vehicle stop
- No standing except certain diplomatic and consular vehicles
Amazing! All of these zones are No Standing zones where you can stop, drop (or pick up), and skedaddle. Memorize ’em and avoid No Standing parking tickets. This is the first in a series of three (3) blog posts…No Stopping Zones tomorrow.
