Lawrence Berezin of New York Parking Ticket.com recently posted a great blog entry about the myriad of ways that commercial vehicles can beat NYC parking tickets. I was amazed how commercial vehicles have so many more ways of beating a parking ticket than private cars. Below is an excerpt from this article.
Code 16: Truck Loading/Unloading: Standing or parking where standing is prohibited by sign, street marking or; traffic control device
Code 20: General No Parking: No parking where parking is prohibited by sign, street marking or traffic control device
Code 21: Street Cleaning: No parking where parking is prohibited by sign, street marking or traffic control device
Code 34: Expired Meter– parking in a metered space in which the meter is operational, and the meter indicates the time has expired
Code 46: Double Parking: Standing or parking on the roadway side of a vehicle stopped, standing or parked at the curb; in other words, “double parking”. A person may; however, stand a Commercial vehicle alongside a vehicle parked at the curb at such locations and during such hours that stopping, standing and parking is not prohibited when expeditiously making picjups, deliveries or service calls, provicded that there is no unoccupied parking space or designated loading zone on either side of the street within 100 feet. “Double parking” any type of vehicle is not; however, permitted in Midtown Manhattan (the area from 14th Street to 60th Street, betwee First Avenue and Eighth Avenue inclusive). Except where otherwise restricted, midtown double parking is prohibited between 7 am and 7 pm daily except Sundays. (See Code 47).
