Getting around can be tough when your pregnant, but now one City Councilman wants to at least make it a bit cheaper for mothers-to-be.
"New York is a tough place to get around," Greenfield told the paper. "If you have a difficult pregnancy, it's even tougher. This should make it a little bit easier."
The councilman will introduce legislation next week that would grant special parking placards to pregnant women whose doctors say they have physical or mobility challenges.
The women could then park for free, including in no-parking or no-standing zones, until 30 days after their expected due dates.
"If I'm on a train and a pregnant woman walks in, I stand up and offer her my seat," Greenfield said. "I consider this legislation to be the same thing - standing up on the City Council for women who have difficult pregnancies."
Critics of the legislation say it will make parking laws even more complicated than they already are.
