Council to Vote on Windshield Stickers for Parking Violations

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Call it a scarlet letter for New York City motorists.

In addition to a summons or a fine, many drivers who violate the city's Alternate Side Parking rules end up with a yellow neon sticker affixed to their windshield or other window. 

"Having to get a razor to remove it, it kind of finds you guilty even before you're found guilty," said City Councilman James Vacca, head of the transportation committee.

That committee said the stickers should be eliminated. The City Council will vote on the measure Wednesday.

The stickers were first used in 1987.
