Summary: This bill would prohibit any city agency from agreeing to reduce fines for parking violations in exchange for a waiver of the right to contest parking violations. It would also require that any dismissal of a parking violation or reduction of a fine, other than for certain technical reasons, would require a hearing on the merits of each charge and a written determination by an administrative law judge.

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 2 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-216 to read as follows:

§ 19-216 Dismissal of notice of violation or reduction of fine. Except for the dismissal or cancellation of a notice of violation for a technical reason pursuant to paragraph (b) of subdivision 2-a of section 238 of the vehicle and traffic law, paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of section 39-02 of title 19 of the rules of the city of New York, subdivision 2 of section 19-162 or section 19-215, no notice of violation may be dismissed, or the associated fine reduced, without the issuance of a written determination by an administrative law judge after completion of a hearing on the merits of each individual charge. No city agency may agree to reduce fines for parking violations in exchange for a waiver of the right to contest such violations.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law.
