NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Black Friday might feel like a holiday — but it’s not.
At least not when it comes to the city’s parking regulations, WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported.
City Council member David Greenfield of Brooklyn says this means that the city will clean up on parking tickets today.
As Greenfield puts it, many drivers won’t realize they need to feed the meter, or that alternative side parking rules are in effect on Friday.
“It’s really disgusting what they’re doing,” Greenfield said. “They know that you believe that you can park anywhere you want today, and they know it’s not true.”
Greenfield has proposed making Black Friday a parking holiday, but that effort has stalled.
In the meantime, he has some advice:
“Don’t get suckered into one of those thousands of New Yorkers today, who are going to get hit with a whopping parking ticket.”
Calls to city officials have not been returned.
