BK lawmaker trying to ban alternate-side violation stickers

BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn lawmaker is working to ban the neon stickers posted on cars that violate alternate-side parking rules.

Councilman David Greenfield says the bright stickers are a safety hazard because they cover windows. The stickers were created to motivate residents to move their cars for street cleaning. The large neon stickers state that a car has violated sanitation department rules.

However, Greenfield says the $45 fines are enough motivation. The stickers are merely an added hassle, he says. Greenfield is expected to propose legislation banning the stickers today.
