NYC Alternate Side Parking ASPOn Monday, June 7, 2014, the NYC City Council held a hearing on a bill that would allow drivers in NYC to return to parking spaces once the street sweepers pass through for NYC street cleaning. For locals, the street cleaning is referred to as Alternate Side Parking (ASP) regulations. 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.

We’ve covered this proposal before, and here’s a recap.

Benefits

  1. Potentially significant reduction in wait times for NYC drivers who have to wait 2 – 4 hours in their vehicles during the mandated Alternate Side Parking regulation time.
  2. Much less double-parking by these vehicles, so traffic will be reduced as well
