PARKING: Impact of Resident PARKING Expansion on 48 Hour Rule

Question/Comment: One of the main reasons for having the 48-hour rule is to ensure that non-residents do not abandon their cars on the streets. Now that most streets are going to become resident-only parking, the city doesn’t need the 48-hour parking rule. Are there plans to drop it? If not, why?

City Update 9/23/2009: Most of the 48-hour rule citations are issued after snowstorms. During this time period, it will remain important for residents to dig out their cars so that plows can clean the streets. 48-hour citations issued during other times in the year are in response to constituent complaints.
