BROOKLYN - City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez has reintroduced legislation that would ease alternate side parking rules.

Under the bill, drivers would be allowed to stay inside their cars on a restricted side of a street during street sweeping without getting ticketed. The proposal would mean fewer tickets for idling.

The bill also proposes that drivers would be allowed to park their cars on a restricted side of the street if the street has already been cleaned.

Brooklyn residents told News 12 that the proposal makes sense and would be a relief to what has been a constant headache for drivers.

Brooklyn councilmen Steven Levin and Antonio Reynoso co-sponsored the bill.

A spokesperson for the Department of Sanitation told News 12 that they do not comment on proposed legislation.
