STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

The Fleet Program of the New York City Department of Finance (DOF) is a voluntary program that was established to assist companies with one or more commercial vehicles, used exclusively for the delivery of goods or services, in managing their parking summonses by providing them with weekly listings of new summonses issued to any of the company’s vehicles with plates registered in the program.  An enrolled company is currently allowed a period of forty-five days to resolve a summons by either paying the summons at a base fine, or by obtaining a hearing, without incurring penalties. This rule amendment will increase the period of time to resolve a summons to sixty days.  It also clearly sets forth the penalties for failing to pay the fine amounts for summonses the company does not contest in a timely manner.
