Better news: Street cleaning, which has basically stopped due to alternate side of the week parking being stopped, will start up again.

/there is a reason that that policy existed

So.. What's alternate side parking? I drive on the right, but can cross the double yellow and park on the left?

I thought no one drove in NYC because there was too much traffic.

chitownmike: Why would they change the parking laws for covid?


Somebody argued successfully that "people shouldn't have to keep going outside during lockdown to move their cars".

DC street signs: No parking every other Thursday on this side, except for when months start on a Sunday, to allow for street cleaning that never happens until somebody personally connected to a DC Council Member complains that the raccoon corpse outside of her row house hasn't been collected for two weeks

Someday I need to go visit the four-level parking structure I assume the city of Ames, Iowa built with my parking fines when I was in college. I don't need a statue in front of it, but a tasteful plaque would be nice.

Those people were, of course, blithering morons, but I'm happy the trash will finally be cleaned from the streets again and people will start getting towed and opening up parking again.

This place is a cesspool without constant sanitation duty and even then, it's still a stinking arm out of disgust.

Street cleaning. One winter, when we lived in Brooklyn, alternate side was suspended for several weeks due to snow. Some dingleberry left a bunch of chicken bones in the gutter by our building that our beagle would suddenly lunge for every time we walked by and forgot the bones were there.

Man, if you think NYC today is one big trash can I need to invent a time machine and take you back to 1980s NYC!
Today's NYC might as well be suburbia with how cleaned up it is.

I mean, he isn't wrong. But the fact that this place is a giant trash can is why I actually like living here ... except all the days I dream about retiring upstate.

The color and order of the signs matters: the top one is the street cleaning sign, everyone needs to move, no exceptions.  And the time for that is 11 am Tuesday. 

After that the red text is the rules for everyone except for district placard holders, in which case the green applies. 

And then just read. 

But realistically, if you see this sign and you are unfamiliar with the school schedule you should park elsewhere cuz it is all tow-away and they will tow your shiat.

It's all tow away, that is literally all you need to see, it says that, like, 12 times. In case you miss the tow truck idling nearby.

So do you feel lucky?  Well do ya, punk?

This.  Also keep in mind that you're leaving something with the footprint of a studio apartment in the public commons, everybody is doing you a huge personal favor by allowing on street parking at all in the first place.

California has the right idea in changing those to a TV Guide style timeline grid.

In my head, I'm going to think that the "passenger loading" graphic is "on-site hookers only." Especially considering the hours listed.

bullshiat. nobody is getting towed, and no additional parking is going to magically appear. the only difference is the city will now collect more money for the nypd writing tickets (that increased from 45 to 65 over last year) so then mayor covid can buy more toys for his cops.

I live quite near an NYPD tow pound. To say it's a quiet place would be the understatement of the century. It always seems like a busy place anytime I go by that way.

Sure, lots of cars get towed by nypd daily, but never for violating street cleaning rules. 65 ticket is written every time.

So... Is alternate an adjective or a verb in this context? I've lived in CT, CO, and MT and never heard of it.
