New streamlined NYC parking signs were designed to be simpler to read.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) is hoping that newly designed signs will simplify parking in New York City.

On Monday the DOT unveiled the easy to read and see parking regulations signs, which will initially replace 6, 300 in Midtown Manhattan through this spring, then in other parts of the city.

The problem with the old parking signs was that they had differing colors, typefaces, font sizes and confusing phrasing, said the DOT. The new standardized two-color signs are phrased and formatted so they are easier to read.

“New York City’s parking signs can sometimes be a five-foot-high totem pole of confusing information,” said DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan. “Parking signs play an important role in setting the rules at the curbside and these changes will make regulations easier to read and take the stress out of figuring out where and when you can legally park.”
