NYC Councilman Jimmy Vacca reports that three bills passed and approved by the City Council Comm. on Transportation, which he chairs.

One bill prohibits the city from posting the green-yellowish stickers on your car when you get a ticket for violating alternate side parking regulations.

Another bill says the 30 day time period for paying a ticket only begins after a hearing determining your guilt is held, not from the day the ticket is issued should you claim your innocence.

And lastly, upon receiving a muni meter ticket, a driver would have a five minute grace period to produce a meter receipt and evidence of payment to the traffic agent. Its called fairness and common sense!
