Less is more: Newer, shorter parking signs to go up in Manhattan

For decades, motorists attempting to find the elusive parking spot in Manhattan have had to contend with the one-two punch of heavy traffic and virtually indecipherable parking signs.

Look very closely the next time you get a parking ticket here in NYC

Of all the traffic violations that you could be issued here in New York City -- speeding, red light summonses, failure to yield, etc. -- none are perhaps as frustrating as parking tickets.
