Alternate Side Parking Calendar 2012

NYC Alternate Side Parking ASP

FINE: $45 – $65

PARKING RULE & REGULATION:Code 21 says that you cannot parking where parking is not allowed by sign, street marking or traffic control device for NYC street cleaning. Basically, Code 21 refers to Alternate Side Parking regulations (ASP), which keeps NYC streets clean. For anywhere from 2 to 3 hours a day, you are not allowed to have your vehicle on a particular street so the NYC Department of Sanitation can ‘sweep’ the streets. Most ASP signs are clearly marked with the ‘P’ symbol with a broom through it. If you choose to regularly park your vehicle on the street, you’ll quickly figure out how to manage the ASP ‘dance’ and even find streets where you can keep your car for multiple days.

But with all this hassle, there is good news! On Sundays, there are no Alternate Side Parking regulations for NYC street cleaning. Plus, on 43 days in 2012, NYC street cleaning and ASP regulations are suspended for legal and religious holidays, as listed in this chart. There are 6 major legal holidays (in bold & red in the chart). On these 6 major holidays,

  • Parking meters are not in effect, and
  • Stopping, standing, and parking are permitted – except in areas where stopping, standing, and parking rules are in effect 7 days a week (for example, “No Standing Anytime”).

On the other 37 holidays, only street ASP NYC street cleaning regulations are suspended. All the other parking regulations are in effect.
