A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to prohibiting parking of certain commercial vehicles on residential streets

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision a of section 19-170 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 104 for the year 1993, is amended to read as follows:

b. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no person shall park a commercial vehicle on a residential street from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. When a commercial vehicle is a tractor-trailer combination, tractor, truck trailer or semi-trailer, no person shall park such vehicle on a residential street at any time. For the purpose of this subdivision, residential streets are defined as those streets, or parts thereof, which are located within a residential district under the zoning resolution. Where a commercial vehicle is parked in violation of this subdivision, it shall be an affirmative defense to said violation, with the burden of proof on the person who received the summons, that he or she was actively engaged in business at the time the summons was issued at a premises located within three city blocks of where the summons was issued. This subdivision shall not apply to vehicles owned or operated by gas or oil heat suppliers or gas or oil heat systems maintenance companies, the agents or employees, thereof, or any public utility.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of transportation shall take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
