NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — City Council has passed what they’re calling a fair parking legislative package consisting of three bills aimed at making parking a little easier in New York City.

“You’ll be able to show your receipt to the agent. If it’s only been five minutes or less, that agent will void our ticket electronically on the machine they have,” said Quinn.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to veto that measure. The council promises to override.
“In addition to the ticket, you’ve got a big neon sticker smacked on the side of your car,” said Quinn. “What’s the point of that sticker? It’s not making the city any money, it’s not going to move your car. It’s really just to embarrass you.”
Bloomberg says he will sign a third bill that prohibits late fees on parking tickets that are being challenged.
