SECTION 837-I
Uniform parking ticket
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 35
§ 837-i. Uniform parking ticket. 1. The commissioner, in cooperation
with the commissioner of the department of motor vehicles, and in
consultation with the chief executive officers of cities with a
population in excess of one hundred thousand persons according to the
nineteen hundred eighty United States census shall prescribe the form
and content of uniform parking tickets for such cities in all cases
involving a parking, standing or stopping violation as defined in
accordance with the vehicle and traffic law, hereinafter referred to as
parking violations, or of any local law, ordinance, rule or regulation
adopted pursuant to the vehicle and traffic law relating to parking
violations. Upon written application of the chief executive officer of
any such city, the commissioner, after consultation with the
commissioner of the department of motor vehicles, may authorize the use
of a parking ticket other than the uniform parking ticket prescribed
pursuant to this section if he or she determines that use of such other
parking ticket is not inconsistent with, and will not diminish the
effectiveness of, the parking violations enforcement and disposition
program established pursuant to section eight hundred thirty-seven-j of
this chapter, and may also authorize for a specified time period the use
of a parking ticket which was used by such city on or before the
effective date of this section.

2. The commissioner in consultation with the chief executive officers
of cities with a population in excess of one hundred thousand persons
according to the nineteen hundred eighty United States census shall
establish a system to record and monitor the issuance and disposition of
parking tickets, to monitor the collection of the mandatory surcharge
required by section eighteen hundred nine-a of the vehicle and traffic
law and to receive information from cities for this purpose. Each such
city shall report on such parking violations on a monthly basis in the
form and manner prescribed by the commissioner including, but not
limited to, the parking tickets issued, the dispositions of such tickets
and the amount of fines, penalties and mandatory surcharges collected.
The commissioner shall collect, process and analyze such information and
present periodic reports on the parking violations enforcement and
disposition program.

3. The commissioner shall have the power from time to time to adopt
such rules and regulations as may be necessary to accomplish the
purposes of this section.
