§ 191-3 Effect on other provisions.

The establishment of voucher parking zones in the locations designated in § 191-2 hereinabove shall not serve to convert or repeal, supersede or otherwise affect any parking space or spaces either heretofore or hereafter designated and properly posted as Special Permit Parking District spaces under § 189-37 or any related schedule, or as short-term metered parking spaces under Article IV, or any related schedule, set forth in Chapter 189 of the Village Code.

A. 
Voucher parking shall be deemed to be in force and effect for the purposes of this chapter, in all on-street voucher parking zones designated under § 191-2 hereinabove, between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., prevailing time, of every day except Saturdays and Sundays and legal holidays; provided, however, that when and where any different hours of operation shall be specified and posted for any particular on-street voucher zone by any separate and/or subsequent order of the Board of Trustees, such different posted hours of operation shall be deemed to supersede those specified in this section, and shall solely apply to and exclusively govern the posted zone or space(s), for all purposes under or in connection with this chapter.
[Amended 7-10-2001]
B. 
The maximum parking time limit for all vehicles parked or standing in a designated on-street voucher parking zone, during established hours of operation, shall be the posted time limit for that particular zone or particular space. Subject to the maximum posted limits described above, the legal individual time limit for any particular vehicle shall be the prepaid and imprinted parking time limit shown upon a current, activated and unexpired authorized parking voucher displayed, as required by the instructions on such voucher, in the driver's window of that vehicle.
C. 
During any period constituting the applicable hours of operation for voucher parking under or pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, no person shall at any time park or stand any motor vehicle in any designated on-street voucher parking zone without having first activated, and then displayed upon such vehicle, one or more prepaid authorized parking voucher(s) approved for such use, as prescribed and directed by the instructions imprinted upon or accompanying such voucher(s); and no person shall continue to park or stand such vehicle in any such zone or space during such hours of operation after the expiration of the legal time limit provided for and appearing upon the face of any such voucher(s), nor in any event beyond the maximum parking time limit posted for that zone or space, as referred to and provided for in Subsection B of this section, hereinabove.

§ 191-5 Designated zones to be long-term; authorized vouchers required; fee.

Every voucher parking zone designated under § 191-2 of this chapter, hereinabove, shall be a long-term (i.e., all-day) voucher parking zone. Within every such zone, only authorized long-term parking vouchers officially licensed by and sold on behalf of the Village of New Hyde Park shall be used by any person when parking or standing a motor vehicle, for any duration, in any parking space regulated and posted as a voucher-required parking space controlled by that zone. The fee for every authorized long-term parking voucher shall be as set forth in § 1-32 of Article III of Chapter 1 of the Village Code per individual daily voucher, and such vouchers shall be made available for sale at such price, and may be purchased by the public in advance of their use, at any authorized retail voucher sales agent outlet located within the Village, during regular business hours.

§ 191-6 Suspension of regulations.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, or the provisions of any article, section or subsection of Chapter 189 of the Village Code, the Board of Trustees hereby reserves the power and authority to temporarily suspend voucher parking regulations in any or all voucher parking zones designated under this chapter: on any Village or other locally observed holiday; during snowstorms, hurricanes or other natural disasters or during Village-declared weather or other emergencies; or for or during any Village-sponsored or Village-authorized public events, parades or other special public celebrations; when and if, in the opinion of such Board, such temporary suspension is deemed to be in the best interests of the Village or is otherwise deemed to be required to protect or preserve public health, safety, welfare or convenience.

§ 191-7 Penalties for offenses.

[Amended 9-25-2007]
Pursuant to § 189-46 of Article VIII of Chapter 189 of the Village Code, a violation of any of the provisions of this chapter shall constitute a traffic infraction and shall be punishable in accordance with the provisions of said Article VIII, in the same manner and to the same degree as other offenses against the provisions of said chapter; except that, for the purposes of this chapter, and pursuant to the authority of § 189-47A of said chapter: a fixed fine of $25 is hereby prescribed as the penalty for any overtime parking offense in violation of the provisions of § 191-4 of this chapter; a fixed fine of $20 is hereby prescribed as the penalty for any failure to properly display an authorized parking voucher as instructed, and when required, in violation of the provisions of § 191-4 hereof; a fixed fine of $50 is hereby prescribed as the penalty for parking in a designated voucher parking zone without an authorized parking voucher, in violation of the provisions of § 191-4 hereof; and a fixed fine of $75 is hereby prescribed as the penalty for the use at any time in a voucher parking zone of any unlicensed, unauthorized, fraudulent altered or reproduced or other illegally duplicated parking vouchers, in violation of the provisions § 191-5 of this chapter.
