NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City drivers could get a break when it comes to alternate-side-of-the-street parking rules.
Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, D-Washington Heights/Inwood, has introduced a bill that would allow drivers to park on a street again after a street sweeper has moved through.READ MORE: Suspect Arrested After Carjacking Amazon Delivery Van, Leading Police On Wild Chase Through Paterson, N.J.
Currently on alternate-side days, drivers muset move their cars for periods of time — generally 90 minutes to two hours — to allow for street sweeping, and anyone caught parking during those times could be ticketed.
“I double-park at 9, and a little before 10, I move it back to the other side of the street,” said Park Slope resident Barbara Rothenberger.
But soon drivers like Rothenberger may not have to contend with the hassle of finding parking.
