Push to simplify parking signs in NYC

City Councilman Dan Garodnick is promoting his proposals intended to simplify parking signs.

Some signs are clear about if you park here you will get a ticket, but others are not so much.

Parking in New York City has never been easy, but City Councilman Dan Garodnick says it shouldn't be a trap.

He has introduced a bill that would make signs and the combination of signs easier to figure out.

A task force would be created to evaluate signage every three years.

If anyone understands the signs around the city, it would be someone who drives around the city often like a fed ex driver. Yet, we found one with a ticket.

Everyone we spoke with thinks the councilman's idea is a good one, but still no date for when the committee would be created. Until then, read the signs carefully.
