More proposed parking legislation
Wow! It’s October, and time for a visit to the NYC Council website. There are a significant number of proposed laws waiting for their time to shine. Meanwhile, I wonder how many of these laws will see the light of day. And, how many will retire to the never passed, old-rules nursing home?
What do you think?
Here is a bunch of proposed NYC parking laws
I filled these six tabs to the brim with new laws. Click on the images, and you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the proposed laws in all their glory.
I’m going to highlight some of these laws below this paragraph.
What are “Dynamic Parking Zones?”
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York regarding dynamic parking zones
Do we need any more cameras?
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York requiring the installation of cameras on street sweepers to photograph and report parking, stopping, or standing violations
What makes Kew Gardens so unique?
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York regarding the creation of a residential parking permit system in Kew Gardens
Miles to go to find a parking sign
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York about the distance between parking signs
Prohibit Continuous Parking
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, prohibiting the use of a vehicle to reserve a parking space and prohibiting the continuous parking of a car in the exact location for more than five consecutive days
Vote For or Against these proposed NYC parking laws
I read an excellent article in “Blomberg” about a proposed bill allowing New Yorkers to collect bounties for reporting bike-lane blockers. This proposed legislation is aimed at curtailing illegal parking. But some worry about unintended consequences.
“Council Member Lincoln Restler said the bill is necessary because the New York City Police Department, which has traditionally been responsible for enforcing these traffic rules, isn’t giving out enough tickets. The number of traffic citations issued in the city increased from fiscal 2021 to fiscal 2022 but remains nearly 50% below pre-pandemic levels, according to the Mayor’s Management Report.
‘I feel the safety risks every day that are associated with illegal parking,’ said Ressler, a cyclist. ‘It’s even more problematic for the parent pushing a stroller or a person in a wheelchair who can’t get by on the sidewalk because of illegally parked cars. That’s why we are creating, in this legislation, a new structure to bring real accountability.'”
What do you think about bounty hunters versus bike-lane blockers?
