Every New Yorker knows NYC is a difficult beast when it comes to parking. Here are 5 things to know about NYC parking:
The average New Yorker spends 107 hours per year searching for a parking space. That’s about 4 and a half days per year set aside just for parking. This not only costs drivers hours but it also increases fuel consumption and emissions!
If this time is converted into a monetary value, it adds up to $2,243 per year per driver. Considering there are almost 2 million drivers in NYC this costs $4.3Bn to the city!
NYC issues the highest number of parking tickets in the country, for a total value of over $600,000,000.
