City Council voted to override Mayor Bloomberg's veto of a bill that will give drivers a five-minute grace period at certain metered parking spots. Last month, Council voted 47-2 to pass the bill, which will prevent ticketing agents from issuing violations until five minutes after alternate side parking regulations take effect and five minutes after MuniMeters run out. Supporters have said the proposal will help eliminate "gotcha" ticketing, while opponents including the Mayor say it will lead to "chaos and enormous increases in the number of contested tickets."
