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-o to read as follows:
  S 1640-O. 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.

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