The City Council’s Transportation Committee is reviewing a bill that Councilman Robert Holden sponsored which will require NYPD and the city Department of Buildings to investigate the legality of curb cuts for driveways before issuing summonses.
The legislation looks to save drivers money on tickets and tows as well as crack down on illegal driveways, according to Holden, who says the issue puts an undue burden on motorists.
“Too often folks are being summonsed, and even worse, towed because a homeowner decided to alter their curbs to create an illegal driveway. This is a problem that requires a response from our city agencies,” the Middle Village-based lawmaker said.
