Parking Regulations Have Yet to Go Into Effect This Year

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

It’s news that can inspire euphoric comments on Twitter: “woo hoo! It's going to be a great day” and “Another great day in the neighborhood.”

The NYC Department of Transportation has suspended alternate side parking through Saturday. From their announcement today:

SUSPENSION OF ALTERNATE SIDE PARKING REGULATIONS WEDNESDAY, JAN. 5 THROUGH SATURDAY, JAN. 8

The New York City Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the Department of Sanitation, today announced the suspension of Alternate Side Parking Regulations citywide for Wednesday, Jan. 5 through Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011 to facilitate ongoing snow and trash collection operations.  

Parking meters will remain in effect throughout the City.

The Department of Sanitation, which handles street cleaning, needs to play catch-up on the mountains of garbage that have been piling up on city streets since last week.

Saturday will mark the second consecutive week that parking rules have been suspended.  To remain up-to-date with the city's alternate side regulations, visit the 311 website.
