BROOKLYN - New parking signs are popping up around the city, and many people are complaining that they’re more difficult to read. 

Some drivers say the lettering on the updated signs is too small, making it nearly impossible to read from a distance. 

The Department of Transportation says the rollout for the new signs started in different parts of the city about a year ago. 

It stands behind the changes made, saying they reduce visual clutter and make the actual parking rule clearer to understand.
