BROOKLYN - Lawmakers are proposing legislation that could reduce parking headaches for drivers.

Specifically, the legislation would allow drivers to park on the restricted side of a street if the street has already been cleaned or let them remain in their cars and move when the street is ready to be cleaned.

A study by Transportation Alternatives found that 28 to 44 percent of traffic on some New York City streets is generated by people looking for a parking spot.

Residents say the law would greatly reduce parking troubles and tickets. Many say they would be excited if it went into effect.
