NYC Parking Rules For Pregnant Women

New York City Considering Giving Pregnant Women Special Parking Privileges

Expectant mamas may soon get a free parking pass in one of the country's most traffic-challenged cities. A New York City councilman is proposing legislation that will provide special parking placards to pregnant women experiencing physical or mobility challenges. The permits will allow the doctor-designated mamas-to-be with free parking in no-parking or no-standing zones until 30 days after their expected due dates.

According to Councilman David Greenfield, "New York is a tough place to get around. If you have a difficult pregnancy, it's even tougher. This should make it a little bit easier."

Over the last few years, we've seen malls and baby emporiums offer designated "Parking for Expecting Moms" spots, and a few years ago California considered, but ultimately voted against, offering a five-month disabled parking permit to pregnant women. Do pregnant women really need special parking privileges?
