Parking Permits for People with Disabilities
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
Section 2903(a)(15)(a) of the New York City Charter (“Charter”) empowers the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) Commissioner to issue Special Vehicle Identification Parking Permits, including Parking Permits for People with Disabilities (PPPD). It further provides that “[a]ny abuse by any person to whom such permit has been issued of any privilege, benefit or consideration granted pursuant to such permit, shall be sufficient cause for revocation of such permit.” Section 4-08(o)(1)(v) of Title 34 of the Rules of the City of New York (“RCNY”) provides that “any abuse by any person of any privilege, benefit or consideration granted by such permit, shall be sufficient cause for revocation of said permit.”
Currently, neither the Charter nor the RCNY provides any guidance for the procedures to revoke or suspend a PPPD.
This proposed rule sets forth the procedures for an administrative appeal of a determination by the DOT to revoke or suspend a PPPD.
