STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE
Section 19-203(b) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York allows the Department to provide for penalties, other than imprisonment, for parking violations. The Department’s rule in 19 RCNY § 39-05 (“Rule 39-05”) codifies all fines pertaining to parking violations in violation of
34 RCNY § 4-08. The Department adjudicates and then collects and processes these fines, remitting the fines to the Commissioner. The Department cannot collect and process a fine without that fine being specified in Rule 39-05.

This rule is being amended to conform to the rule amendments to 34 RCNY § 4-08 that are being enacted by DOT. The rule amendments to 34 RCNY § 4-08 are being enacted by DOT to update parking provisions to reflect current parking signage and terminology.

The Department’s authority for this rule is found in section 237 of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law, section 19-203 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, and sections 1043 and 1504 of the New York City Charter.
