Some Brooklyn residents to get reprieve on parking

Drivers in parts of Sunset Park, Greenwood Heights and Windsor Terrace are catching a break for the next 12 weeks as alternate-side parking regulations are temporarily suspended.

The city's Department of Transportation is changing parking signs to reduce street-sweeping days from twice a week to just once a week, hoping to make it easier for residents to park.

The local community board says it is receiving calls about the new changes, and many people are happy because they were tired of moving their cars.Drivers will still need to feed parking meters, and the sign changes will not impact commercial streets or other industrial areas.
