Int. No. 2201-A

 

By Council Members Rivera, Louis, D. Diaz and Kallos

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to allowing motorcyclists to challenge parking violations electronically with photographic evidence

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision c of section 19-213 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by a local law for the year 2021 amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to parking meters, as proposed in introduction number 2422-A, is amended to read as follows:

c. Failure to purchase parking time. Notwithstanding any rule or regulation to the contrary, and subject to the provisions of the vehicle and traffic law, where a notice of violation is issued to an owner or operator of a vehicle for the failure to purchase parking time, it shall be an affirmative defense to such violation that such owner or operator purchased parking time for the time such notice of violation was issued or up to five minutes thereafter from a parking meter at the location such notice of violation was issued. Evidence in support of the affirmative defense shall be the presentation, in person or by mail, of a valid payment receipt for the time such notice of violation was issued or for up to five minutes thereafter or other suitable evidence, as determined by the hearing officer, that such parking time was purchased. When in such instance the vehicle is a motorcycle, evidence may be a digital photograph, submitted through the bureau’s website, of a valid payment receipt for the time such notice of violation was issued or for up to five minutes thereafter.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as a local law for the year 2021 amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to parking meters, as proposed in introduction number 2422-A for the year 2021, takes effect.
