Albany parking permit grace period ends

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The city of Albany has already issued its first parking tickets to drivers who violated the new parking permit system, and Friday was the first day the grace period expired.

Without a permit, there is a 2-hour limit in three parking zones within a three-quarter mile radius of the Empire State Plaza.

When time expired, the $50 tickets were handed out.

The permit system has been talked about for years and is designed to ease the competition between state workers and city residents.

Until Friday, warnings had been handed out, and more than a thousand of those were issued.
