Snow day parking amnesty may be just around the bend in New York City.
The City Council is expected to pass a bill this week that would suspend alternate-side-parking rules whenever enough snow falls to require plows, two councilman said Sunday.
"This is one of the most common-sense measures that's been taken up,"said City Councilman John Liu (D-Queens).
He said the bill is expected to pass his Transportation Committee tomorrow and clear the full Council on Thursday.
"Alternate-side regulations exist for one purpose only - to clean the streets - and the second the snowplows are called out, there is no more street cleaning."
