How To Avoid Parking Tickets in NYC

  • Always look out for signage about parking restrictions when parking on the street. Restrictions typically have to do with weather, time limits, and street cleaning.
  • The two main reasons street parking may not be permitted are street cleanings and construction. Many blocks have specific days and hours that parking is not permitted, based on when street cleanings are scheduled. Keep an eye out for signage indicating these restricted signs.
  • Know when to not park on the street. Sometimes, knowing when to opt for off-street parking can save you a lot of pain and frustration. During major events or when traveling to a dense area, for example, off-street parking is not only the easier, but the more affordable choice. Consider finding and reserving off-street parking in advance for optimal convenience.
