NYC Suspends Meter Regulations, Street Cleaning
So now, as New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg is having his own Bilandic moment with the city still paralyzed from the snowstorm, that NYC announced the fourth day of suspended parking meter regulations and alternative side parking for street cleaning today according to Fox New York News.
Between the meter holidays of Christmas Eve and Christmas, the fact that meters don’t have to be fed on Sundays, the last week of snow days and now another holiday weekend, New York City parking meters will have not generated a single solitary quarter for 10 straight days.
All these breaks for drivers are positive, but in a lot of cases, many New Yorker’s cars are still moribund in the massive snowfall or plowed in by the nearly two feet of snow that fell.
Maybe Chicago can help our friends in the Big Apple and send them our lawn furniture to help drivers save their parking spaces.
Better them than us, we say.
