A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to creating a new parking permit for expectant mothers experiencing a difficult or complicated pregnancy.
 
 
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 19-162.3 to read as follows:
      § 19-162.3 Permissible parking for expectant mothers experiencing a difficult or complicated pregnancy. a. For the purposes of this section, the following term shall be defined as follows:       
"Difficult or complicated pregnancy" shall be defined as any pregnancy which results in impaired mobility.
b. The commissioner shall issue a parking permit for a vehicle owned or operated by an individual who has been certified by a physician as experiencing a difficult or complicated pregnancy. Such parking permit shall be issued within thirty days of the department receiving an application and shall expire thirty days after the expected delivery date.  
c. Such parking permit shall only be used for the purpose of parking a vehicle where parking is prohibited by sign or rule or allowing a vehicle to stand where standing is prohibited by sign or rule.  
d. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, such parking permit shall not authorize the parking of a vehicle in a bus stop, a taxi-stand, within fifteen feet of a fire hydrant, a fire zone, a driveway, a crosswalk, a no stopping zone, a no standing zone, or where the vehicle would be double-parked.  
e. Any misuse of a parking permit issued pursuant to this section shall be sufficient cause for revocation of such parking permit.  
f. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no vehicle bearing a permit issued pursuant to this section may be towed when such vehicle is being used in accordance with the purpose for which such permit was issued, except in public safety emergencies to be determined by the police department.  
      §2.      This local law shall take effect ninety days after its enactment into law.
