Truckers Pushes Back Against NYC’s Plan To Crack Down On Congestion « CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York City says drivers will soon see fewer double-parked trucks and blocked intersections, because of drastic changes to a parking ticket plan.

But as CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reported, the Trucking and Delivery Association is not happy to hear that.

The city says it’s trying to tackle the problem by zeroing in on trucks, cutting back on breaks truckers get when it comes to paying tickets.

Ken Thorpe, with the New York Trucking and Delivery Association, represents more than 700 small businesses that make deliveries.

Thorpe said these tickets could make or break a small business and his association might sue the city.
