Adopted Rules Content: 

The Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) is authorized to

promulgate rules regarding parking and traffic operations in the City by Section 2903(a) of the New

York City Charter. The rules that DOT is seeking to amend are contained within Chapter 4 of Title 34 of

the Rules of the City of New York, relating to “Traffic Rules and Regulations.”

The purpose of these rule amendments is to make clear that misuse of certain parking permits is a

violation of DOT rules.

The amendments to Chapter 4 of Title 34 are detailed more specifically below:

 Section 4-08(o)(3) is amended to clarify eligibility for agency-authorized permits.

 Section 4-08(o)(3) is amended to add a violation for misuse of an agency-authorized

parking permit as a separate violation of DOT rules.

 Section 4-08(o)(3) is amended to add a violation for use of a fraudulent parking permit as

a separate violation of DOT rules.

The New York City Department of Transportation’s authority for these rules is found in section

1043 and 2903(a) of the New York City Charter.

The specific reference to government owned vehicles in the proposed rule was deleted because it

is unnecessary and confusing. Department traffic and parking rules apply to all motor vehicles

except where there are specific exceptions.
