Our leaders are against Congestion Pricing, which is good. But they're also against parking permits. If you want them, please call or write community board 6, like I did, and tell them why.
From Queens Ledger"
"Although Community Board 6 has already denied their recommendation to congestion pricing, Assemblyman Hevesi, Councilwoman Melinda Katz, and former Assemblyman Michael Cohen spoke out against congestion pricing and residential parking permits."
I got a parking ticket yesterday for not feeding the meter in a snowstorm. They want me to walk a mile from the nearest spot with my son on icy sidewalks and snowy roads. Screw them, they can have the $35. But we need parking permits - we cannot be a park and ride for Manhattan commuters. Street space should go to residents first, not commuters or visitors. We have plenty - PLENTY - of garages and metered spots for them.
