Poll: Sixty Percent Think Stickers on Cars are Okay
Thursday, February 09, 2012 - 12:55 PM
Interesting result from a Quinnipiac College poll today: some 60 percent of New Yorkers think the Sanitation department should continue its practice of stickering cars that aren't moved for street cleaning.
The results were pretty much across the board, with the least support (54%) among whites and the highest (65%) among blacks.
The city council, with the full-throated support of Speaker Christine Quinn, who is running for Mayor, recently passed a bill to end the practice, which the Mayor said he would veto.
Fifty four percent of respondents said they owned a car, and half said they parked on the street, rather than in off-street parking.
