Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Subchapter 2 of chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-166.1 to read as follows:
§19-166.1 Electronic tracking system for city-issued parking permits.
a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:
City-issued parking permits. The term “city-issued parking permit” means a document, card, or sticker, issued by a city agency that is displayed in or on a motor vehicle that indicates permission to park in certain areas during certain times has been granted.
b. The department shall create a centralized, electronic system in order to track all city-issued parking permits and to record all instances of parking permit misuse. Such electronic system shall be accessible to all relevant agencies, including, but not limited to, the police department, the department of education, and such other agencies as the department deems necessary.
c. Each city-issued parking permit shall be tracked by means of such electronic system to allow police officers and traffic enforcement agents to confirm the validity of such permit in real time.
d. Every instance of an individual found guilty of the misuse of city-issued parking permits shall be recorded and tracked within said electronic system.
§2. This local law shall take effect one year after it becomes law except that the commissioner of transportation, in consultation with the police commissioner as necessary, shall take any necessary actions to implement this law, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such effective date.
