Section 1. Title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-154 to read as follows:

§19-154  Street, roadway and sidewalk widths.  a.  For the purposes of this section, the following terms shall be defined as follows:

1.  “Roadway” shall have the same meaning as defined under section one hundred forty of the vehicle and traffic law.

2.  “Street” shall have the same meaning as defined under section one hundred forty eight of the vehicle and traffic law.
