A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to prohibiting the use of a vehicle to reserve a parking space and prohibiting the continuous parking of a vehicle in the same location for more than five consecutive days

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Subchapter 2 of chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-175.8 to read as follows:

§ 19-175.8 Restrictions on parking. a. Prohibiting the use of a vehicle to reserve a parking space. Notwithstanding any rule or regulation to the contrary, a person shall not use a vehicle to reserve or attempt to reserve a parking space or to prevent a vehicle from parking on a public street, except as otherwise permitted by law. A person found to be in violation of this subdivision shall be liable for a civil penalty of $95 for each violation.

b. Prohibiting the parking of a vehicle for more than five consecutive days. When parking is not otherwise restricted, a person shall not continuously park a vehicle in the same location on a public street or roadway in any area, including a residential area, for more than five consecutive days.

c. Outreach. Beginning no later than the effective date of this local law, and continuing for 90 days thereafter, the commissioner, in collaboration with relevant agencies and relevant stakeholders, shall conduct culturally appropriate outreach in the designated citywide languages, as defined in section 23-1101, to alert vehicle owners and relevant stakeholders to the parking restrictions established by subdivisions a and b. Such outreach shall include, but need not be limited to, posting information on relevant agency websites.

c. The commissioner shall promulgate rules necessary and appropriate to the administration of this section.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 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.
