AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to  authorizing
  a residential parking permit system in the city of New York

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that
a lack of parking for residents of the city of New York has resulted  in
traffic  hazards,  congestion  and air and noise pollution. In addition,
such lack of parking poses a hazard to residents and  other  pedestrians
in such areas.
  The  legislature  further finds that a residential parking system will
reduce such hazards and will reduce pollution levels as well. The legis-
lature, therefore, declares the necessity of this act to  authorize  the
city  of  New  York  to adopt a residential parking system in accordance
with the provisions of this act.
  S 2. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding  a  new  section
1640-n to read as follows:
  S  1640-N.  RESIDENTIAL  PARKING  SYSTEM  IN  THE CITY OF NEW YORK. 1.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF ANY LAW TO THE CONTRARY, THE  CITY  OF
NEW  YORK  MAY,  BY  ADOPTION OF A LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE, PROVIDE FOR A
RESIDENTIAL PARKING PERMIT SYSTEM AND FIX AND  REQUIRE  THE  PAYMENT  OF
FEES  APPLICABLE  TO PARKING WITHIN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE CITY IN ACCORD-
ANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION.
  2. NO PERMIT SHALL BE REQUIRED ON STREETS WHERE THE  ADJACENT  PROPER-
TIES ARE ZONED FOR COMMERCIAL OR RETAIL USE.
  3.  THE  PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION SHALL NOT APPLY TO THOSE SPACES IN
THE PERMIT AREAS WHICH, AS OF THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS  SECTION,  HAVE
METERED OR HIGHLY RESTRICTED PARKING REGULATIONS.
  4.  THE  LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR SUCH RESIDENTIAL PARKING
SYSTEM SHALL:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
