Oh and btw is it really true a car can get towed for being parked on a block for a long period of time? I think thatís pathetic also if true.

Not even an investigation?

It's a law that is on the books.
You are not supposed to be parked in the same spot over 7 days in a row.
Enforcement varies depending in the neighborhood you are complaining from.

I want the DoS doing street sweeping. But I would change the way the associated parking enforcement would be done.

There would be a sweeping window, similar to what exists now. But the brownies wouldn't be writing tickets to people parking at any time during the window. As long as a car is out of the way when the sweeper goes through the driver is good. Once the sweeper passes, the driver can park and walk away.

This would be enforced by putting cameras on the sweeper. The parking infraction would be blocking the sweeper, and would be issued to any vehicle that blocks the curb, whether the driver is in it or not. This would deal with the common problem of drivers sitting in their car/truck, refusing to move for the sweeper.

I have never lived in a neighborhood with ASP. I can appreciate the need for it. I have seen cars parked for weeks (and months!!) on the street.. It is a pain to try to collect garbage or sweep the leave from under them during the fall. ASP would eliminate this headache.

I downloaded the info for every block where ASP signs are posted. The info is from public NYC databases and is current as of 09/2018. The link is to a 15.6MB pdf file, if it doesn't open automatically click on 'download' to view it.

Just seems like another attack on the poor, working class. I wonít say middle class since many middle class areas do not have alternate side parking (Mill Basin, Marine Park, many areas in Queens/Staten Island etc).

Letís discuss.
What neighborhood are you in?
