STORAGE OF VEHICLES BY SECOND-HAND AUTOMOBILE DEALERS IN PUBLIC SPACE RULE
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
Subdivision a of section 20-268 of Title 20 of the New York City Administrative Code makes it “unlawful for any dealer in second-hand articles to carry on his or her business at any place other than the one designated in such license,” including business that is conducted in public spaces. Additionally, the Department has found that second-hand automobiles are frequently parked, stored or displayed in public spaces, such as sidewalks and streets, which interferes with pedestrian use and creates blockage, congestion and potential safety hazards.
The proposed rule is necessary to clarify that second-hand automobile dealers cannot park, store or display second-hand automobiles on public spaces and to ensure that second-hand automobile dealers park their vehicles in a manner that is safe and does not interfere with the flow of pedestrian traffic.
