NYC Issues Blizzard of Parking Tickets

Alternate-side goes back into effect

Cars still encased in snow and ice got no special treatment.

New York City on Monday issued 9,910 parking tickets— twice the average number — as alternate-side parking regulations went back in effect following a record month of snow.

Those summonses could bring the city as much as $437,000.

On an average day, the city doles out 5,460 tickets. That's about $241,000 in fines.

Alternate-side-of-the street regulations allow the Sanitation Department to clean streets — and remove remaining piles of snow.
