ASP Sign

Alternate Side Parking (ASP) regulations allow for street cleaning. ASP rules are posted on signs with a "P" crossed by a broom and indicate the days and times parking isn’t allowed.

When ASP is in effect, you can’t park on the side of the street that is being cleaned. The rules apply for the entire time posted on the sign, even if a street sweeper has passed.

Note that residential streets without meters are only cleaned—with vehicles required to be moved—on the last day posted on the ASP sign because of ASP Reform Rules.

Holidays and Sundays

ASP rules are suspended on certain legal and religious holidays each year.

On the following major legal holidays, parking meters are also suspended:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

On Sundays, ASP is not in effect and you don’t have to pay the parking meters.

Unplanned Suspensions

ASP rules and sometimes parking meters may be suspended for severe weather or other emergencies. You can sign up to get email notifications of unplanned suspensions from the Department of Transportation (DOT).

Documentation of Past Suspensions

To request written verification of past suspensions or parking sign changes, go to the City Agency Record or FOIL Request page to make a FOIL request to the Department of Transportation.

On days when ASP is in effect, residential "side streets" without meters will not be cleaned more than once a week on each side.

ASP reform signIf a side of a street has an ASP sign showing multiple days, street cleaning regulations will be in effect on that side of the street only on the latest day posted on the sign.

For example, if the ASP sign says the side of the street is cleaned on Mondays and Thursdays, you only have to move your car from that side of the street on Thursday.

This rule does not apply to:

• Streets that have just one day of ASP regulations on each side
• Commercial streets or metered areas

Learn more about Alternate Side Parking reform.

These new ASP reform rules will continue when ASP is in effect until further notice. The City will continue to assess cleanliness conditions to decide whether to extend or modify the new rules.

 

When ASP is suspended, you must still follow any other posted parking time limits and rules.

NYC311 cannot give you information on how City parking rules might apply to specific situations. You should follow the rules posted about time limits and whether it is legal or illegal to park in a specific area.

Because New York City Traffic Rules only require one sign for each block, you should check the whole block and read all signs carefully before you park.

ASP Days and Times on Specific Streets

You can look up the street cleaning rules posted on specific streets by using the Parking Sign Locator.

Suspension Timing

When ASP is suspended, it applies from midnight the day before until midnight the day of the suspension.

Grace Period

You have a 5-minute grace period for ASP zones. The law gives drivers an extra 5 minutes past the time on the ASP sign. During the grace period, parking tickets cannot be issued.

No Stopping, No Standing, No Parking

On major legal holidays, you can park at a No Stopping, No Standing, or No Parking sign if the rule is not normally in effect 7 days a week (for example, No Standing Anytime). Otherwise, you can’t.

The major legal holidays are:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Double Parking

It is illegal to double park passenger vehicles at all times. Commercial vehicles may double park to make quick pick-ups, deliveries or service calls during posted hours only. While on some streets it may be common practice to double park during street cleaning, double parking is still illegal and you may get a ticket.

For more details, review NYC Traffic Rules in Chapter 4, Section 4-08, subdivision (f), paragraph (1) of the Rules of the City of New York.

You can contact the police precinct for questions about enforcement. To find a precinct, go to the Police Precincts and PSAs page.

Open Streets

When ASP is in effect on Open Streets, vehicles should leave the street and may return after ASP is over. If barriers are in place, they should be set up in a way that cars can drive around them. While driving in and out of the street, please watch for pedestrians and travel at 5 MPH.

You can contact your local Community Board to request:

  • Changes to an alternate side parking sign or regulation
  • Street cleaning on a new block

Community Boards will conduct a public hearing, then vote on any recommendation to Sanitation regarding alternate side parking regulations.

For a community board directory, or to search by address, go to the Community Boards page.
