This morning Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg issued a statement that to many New Yorkers may have seemed obvious.
Mayor Bloomberg said: “New York City was hit with a winter storm that was as strong as the meteorologists predicted. Our Sanitation crews worked through the night but road conditions are bad and there are service interruptions and delays on mass transit. To keep the roads clear for plows and emergency crews, I encourage New Yorkers to avoid driving. New York City government never really closes, and it won’t today, but of course we understand that many will face travel obstacles. In addition to the suspension of alternate side parking rules, all parking meter regulations have been suspended for today, so you don’t have to move your car or feed the meter.”
