NEW YORK (AP) - The City Council is considering a bill that would ease New York City’s alternate-side-of-the-street parking rules.

Under the regulation, motorists must move their vehicles to allow city workers to clean the streets.

The bill would allow drivers to return to parking spaces as soon as street sweepers pass through.

Currently, many drivers wait in their vehicles for the full 90 minute-rule to expire.

The bill could lead to a significant reduction in wait times for motorists. It also could cut down on double parking and pollution from idling cars.
