Parking Rules Suspended Again; How to Complain About Abandoned Cars

Notify NYC has duly notified us of yet another extension of the suspension of alternate side parking rules and parking meter requirements, now through tomorrow, Thursday, December 30. (Think they’ll go for the whole week? Wait and see.) They’ve also added this:

Abandoned vehicles are making it difficult for plows to clear snow from city streets. You can report these
vehicles and their locations to 311. Please provide as much detail about the location as possible, such as the address of the closest building, the closest intersection, or the block and its bordering streets.

Update: D’oh, of course the rules are suspended Friday–it’s New Year’s Eve. Then you’re home free through the holiday weekend. Thanks to Doug Biviano for pointing this out.

    I rec’d an email notice from NYC DOT at 1:24 PM today. Over three days after the start of the storm, the city finally came to grips with reality and canceled Alt. Side Parking Regs. for the rest of the week:

    Wednesday, December 29, 2010
    The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) in conjunction with the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) today announced the suspension of Alternate Side Parking (ASP) regulations Citywide for Thursday, December 30 to facilitate snow removal. Parking meter regulations will also be suspended throughout the City.

    Alternate side parking and parking meter regulations also are suspended on Friday, December 31 and Saturday, January 1 for observance of New Year’s and on Sunday, January 2.

    As of two days ago when I called 311, I was told they WERE NOT ACCEPTING ANY COMPLAINTS of unplowed streets or abandoned cars. My street was plowed the next day, three days after the snowfall, which finally allowed my pharmacy to deliver medication i couldn’t navigate the streets to get. This has been beyond incompetent, I think indifferent is probably a better word.
