Bronx Councilman Jimmy Vacca-D 13th District is sponsoring bills which NYC lawmakers are expected to consider, aiming to increase fairness to our citizens in city parking regulations.

One bill would institute a pilot program requiring agents to photograph violations before issuing tickets.
Other measures include new parking placards to be be scanned and verify authenticity, also one-day permits for residents who are moving and suspension of alternate-side regulations when movie shoots tie up spaces.

The other measures address drivers who've been ticketed. One would require judges to dismiss tickets if motorists can produce valid meter receipts, another would prohibit late fees on parking tickets until 30 days after a final judgment, and a bill would allow citizens who are challenging tickets to swear online in with their electronic signature.

Way to go, Councilman Jimmy Vacca. Jimmy Chairs the NYC Transportation Committee.
