Alternate Side Parking Rules to Return in August

(NYCDOT Twitter)

July 24, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Alternate side parking rules will return for all of next month, beginning Monday, Aug. 3, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today.

The city has repeatedly suspended the street parking rules during the coronavirus pandemic, so that New Yorkers don’t have to move their cars for street cleaning.

Alternate side parking will be suspended again next week through Sunday, Aug. 2 and then return to its regular schedule.

“We’re going to resume alternate side parking on an ongoing basis,” de Blasio said.

Drivers will have to move their cars on a weekly basis once again to avoid a ticket from Monday, Aug. 3 through Saturday, Sept. 5.

He added that return of street parking rules and regular street cleaning is another step toward normalcy for New York City after battling the pandemic.

However, people who live on streets where they must move their cars more than once a week no longer need to do so.

“We want to address that issue, make it easier for you,” de Blasio said.

Residential streets that have historically had street cleaning twice or more a week per side will only be cleaned once per side.

Each side will be cleaned on the latest day of the week posted. For example, if the right side of the street is normally cleaned on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, it will only be cleaned Saturdays.

“Many many New Yorkers care deeply about alternate side parking because it affects so many people’s everyday lives,” de Blasio said.

“We’re going back to it, but we’re going to try to do it in a way that makes sense and makes it easier for the people of this city.”

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
