Significant parking changes are coming
Another essential parking change is coming to Parking Ticket Land sooner than later. Remember, it was only Christmas Eve when the NYC Council worked overtime to change the parking rules. For example:
- The City Council changed the name “muni-meter” to “parking meter.”
- Likewise, the Council introduced the term “Blockface” to the driving community.
- Further, they limited the transfer of parking time to the blockface of purchase.
- Added Pay-by-Plate as a payment option.
O.K., do I have your attention? Here it goes.

The new, essential parking change is the elimination of Pay-and-Display.
The DOT just passed a new rule that will eliminate pay-and-display. Likewise, I would save my old muni-meter receipts because they may become as valuable as bitcoin. Here’s the star of the show:
NYC Traffic Rules
The Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (“DOT”) is authorized to promulgate rules regarding parking and traffic operations in the City pursuant to Section 2903(a) of the New York City Charter. The amended rules are contained within Chapter 4 (“Traffic Rules and Regulations”) of Title 34 of the Rules of the City of New York.
Meanwhile, I’m going to display my old muni-meter receipts next to my Mickey Mantle rookie card (I wish). Wow, the City Council and the DOT just eliminated the muni-meter receipt with one blink of an eye. I didn’t see this change coming, did you?
Likewise, no more perp walks back to your chariot after purchasing parking time. “Be still my beating heart.”
What do you think? Are there any cons to this pro-new rule?
