The Department of Transportation (DOT) maintains and installs New York City parking regulation signs. All of these signs are metal and include the agency name and sign code.
Interpreting Parking or Traffic Sign or Regulation
311 cannot give you information on how NYC parking rules might apply to specific situations, including questions about parking at a specific location. You should follow the rules posted about time limits and whether it is legal or illegal to park in a specific area.
Because New York City Traffic Rules only require one sign for each block, you should check the whole block and read all signs carefully before you park.
