New York City Cuts Employee Parking Privileges

January 9, 2008

NEW YORK CITY – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that the city will reduce the number of parking placards issued to city workers by “at least 20 percent” as of Mar. 1, according to the New York Times.

The move comes on the heels of criticism of employees abusing their parking cards. The issue of city workers hogging the streets’ spots had gotten so bad that an entire Web site — http://UncivilServants.org — was set up to expose the problem.

Starting in March, only the Police and Transportation Departments will have the authority to issue the parking permits.

The Police Department will create a new enforcement unit “to ensure compliance,” and agencies will develop rules to prevent abuse of the parking permits, while a “multi-agency working group” will continue to review parking-related issues, including the allocation of spaces for official use; on-street parking regulations; time limits in no parking, truck loading, and metered zones; and greater use of public transportation by city officials.
