My old neighborhood ( Glendale ) thankfully didn't have ASP. It worked out since I worked late shifts when I lived there.

Be careful what you wish for. Some genius council critter will come up with residential parking permits. Create another level of bureaucracy, more city workers, and charge you a fee for a yearly permit.


Or hey, how about we just put a bike lane down one side of the street and no can park there ever.

I rather have residential parking permits. Im sick and tired of the NJ, PA, FL and VA plates in my area year round. They live in the area but have out of state plates with 25% tints like they are undercover cop cars. The residential parking permit will at least make them get NYC plates, pay NYC insurance rates and comply with NYC tint laws.

I hear you, but what happens when Uncle Lou and Aunt Ethel want to stop by and stay for a few days? There just aren't enough municipal garagaes.

In other cities that have resident permits everyone is given a guest permit too. You put it on the dash in front of the driver side while in use. The system works well everywhere I have encountered it.

I don't think Boston even charges for them. Cambridge,Mass charges $25.00 for a resident permit and 1 guest permit.

LMAO you just reminded me when i saw a car parked with a Marshall badge suction cupped to the windshield, a blue handicapped placard hanging from the rear view mirror and a laminate police placard on the dash. They covered all their bases to park illegally.

Officers usually use the placards on their personal cars too or give it to the spouse to illegally park even though those are only supposed to be used when responding to an emergency.

Residential permits would be the kiss of death for a world class city like ours.

Why? Please explain the connection between resident parking permits and "world class" status.
London has a system of neighborhood resident parking permits. It's generally considered to be a "world class city"....perhaps even more so than NYC.

As much as I hate moving my car, ASP regulations are ultimately something I support for the following reasons:

1) The streets in my area are often way too dirty and residents aren't cleaning them as they could/should. Until residents can start to take care of the streets on their blocks, the ASP regulations are necessary, IMO. Note, if the streets remain clean for a certain time period as observed by the sanitation department, there is an application process to decrease the number of times you have to move your car for ASP . . . some neighborhoods I've been to only have it once a week, but their streets are noticeably clean!

2) Without ASP, far too many people would NOT move their cars ever, and parking would be even worse than it already is. Forcing people to move their cars as opened up and continues to open up numerous parking spots on my family's street and surrounding blocks, which I am thankful for. Many of the people who own cars are retirees or just wouldn't be driving their car during the week much as they take mass transit to and from work.

People don’t even realize that it is illegal to double park on the other side of the street during alternate side parking times.

Alternate side also causes heavy traffic mess in certain areas.

Once a week on each side is enough but that would cut millions to city revenue ($45-60 for each car that does not move, and $125 for each car that does not move back on time plus all the late fees and towing fees)
