Fascinating facts about NYC parking tickets
Renthop recently published an informative article sharing NYC parking tickets facts and trends. Did you know:
- What percentage of NY households have access to a car?
- What percentage of Manhattan households have access to a car?
- What is the highest ticketed neighborhood in NYC?
- What NYC borough has the highest number of cars per household and the lowest number of tickets per household? Why?
- What are the lowest ticketed neighborhoods?
- Is enforcement down or are people simply parking better?
- …and much more
I highly recommend reading this wonderful article.
In the meantime, here are some of the findings on display in the report.
