The city is hiking the fine for alternate side parking violations starting tomorrow, according to the Department of Sanitation.
Fines for violators–who fail to move their vehicle to make way for street cleaning–will increase to $65 starting on Feb. 20 in all five boroughs.
Currently, drivers who receive tickets for ASP violations in the outer boroughs pay $45, with the fine only being $65 for those ticketed in Manhattan on or below 96th St.
The Department of Sanitation made an announcement on Twitter last month that the fine would be $65 citywide.
“Residents are our partners in keeping the city healthy, safe and clean,” the DOT said in a Tweet.
Fair enough but to keep up with fairness, eliminate four days of alternate said in Greenpoint to two days like in most areas of the city.
Only major streets like Greenpoint/Franklin need four days. Most side streets are clean.
