NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The transportation department says it’s close to an all-out fix for the parking meter mess that’s been causing headaches for New York City drivers.

The problem was a New Year’s software glitch that prevented drivers from paying meters with credit cards.

The DOT says crews from multiple agencies have manually repaired more than two-thirds of the city’s 14,000 meters.

The department says it expects to have all the meters fixed by Thursday.
