On Tuesday Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez and his co-sponsors on Intro 375 took their efforts a step further. New York City alternate side of the street parking regulations could possibly see GPS technology play a role in helping drivers park their cars faster than they can under current regulations.
For the past two months I have been helping the councilman's talented staff with their efforts to set up a website where his constituents, and all New Yorkers, can sign a petition supporting Intro 375: NYCParkingReform.org.
This legislation represents common sense politics that will ameliorate a problem that's existed longer than most New Yorkers have been alive. Councilman Rodriguez and the co-sposnsors are addressing a basic, but often ignored problem. Let's help them see this through.
