A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring pedicabs to be subject to parking rules.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Chapter one of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-171.2 to read as follows:
§19-171.2 Pedicab parking. a. For the purposes of this section, the term "pedicab" shall mean a bicycle as defined in the vehicle and traffic law or other device that is designed and constructed to transport or carry passengers, that is solely propelled by human power, and that is operated to transport passengers for hire.
b. It is a violation for a person to park, stand, or stop a pedicab where a person is prohibited from parking, standing or stopping a vehicle pursuant to the rules of the city of New York promulgated by the commissioner.  Notices of parking violations for pedicabs that park, stand or stop in violation of such rules shall be returnable to the parking violations bureau.
c. Any person who violates this section shall be subject to a civil penalty in an amount described in the schedule of fines promulgated by the department of finance applicable to parking violations for vehicles.
§2. This local law shall take effect one hundred twenty days after its enactment into law; provided, however, that the commissioner shall take any actions necessary prior to such effective date for the implementation of this local law including, but not limited to, the adoption of any necessary rules.
