Dear Transit Sam,
How long is a bus zone and can I park in one? I got a summons for parking in a bus zone but I was all the way at the other end of a block when I got the ticket.
Bus zones don’t have set lengths, they start at the Bus Zone-No Standing sign, and continue until the next parking regulation sign. If there’s not another sign, the zone lasts until the end of that block. In some cases, the signs that would indicate a change in regulation are missing. If you think that’s the case, look for evidence of the missing sign. You may see a drive rail (a steel post) with no sign. Also check the lamppost for brackets that may have held a sign. You can check the city DOT map to see if a sign is missing at http://www.nycdot.info/, and add a “parking signs” layer to the map. To find out the regulation for each, just click any sign on the map. If you find the “smoking missing sign” include that in your defense to the PVB and hopefully the judge will have mercy on you.
