Dan and I have been working relentlessly to alert the NYC driving public about a change in the pedestrian ramp law
In December, 2008, the NYC parking rule was changed for parking in front of a pedestrian ramp located mid-block on the long street of a 'T' Intersection, in the absence of marked crosswalks and traffic control devices (34 RCNY 4-08(f)(7); VC 67). Despite the change in the parking law, the revised Rule was never published. Parking ticket warriors and police officers were still issuing NYC parking tickets for pedestrian ramp violations which were no longer illegal. Hearing officials were still finding members of the NYC driving public guilty as charged. The pain is $165 for the parking ticket, and in many instances, $185 for the tow.
