Alternate side parking rules return

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The New York City Department of Transportation reinstated alternate side of the street parking rules on Wednesday, the first time since superstorm Sandy ravaged the tristate region.

The parking regulations remain suspend for severely impacted areas of Brooklyn and Queens.

Returning the parking rules was met with resistance from Public Advocate Bill de Blasio who said the policy would lead to inevitable tickets for vehicles stranded without gas.

The city added several neighborhoods to the exempt list on Wednesday.

An odd/even gas rationing restriction remains in place to alleviate long lines at gas stations that began after the storm knocked out power to many leaving them unable to provide gas for customers' cars.
