The confusing, hard-to-read parking signs that make drivers in Manhattan crazy received a makeover Monday.
DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan unveiled a redesigned parking signs for Manhattan that will make it easier on drivers, and aims to reduce parking tickets throughout the city’s busiest area.
The new signs have just two colors, are kept to 152 characters, are a foot shorter, and have a clearer type face.
“The signs were a cross between an Excel spread sheet and a totem pole. You shouldn’t need a PhD in transportation to decipher the signs,” Sadik-Khan said.
The initial rollout will replace 6,300 signs, 450 of which were installed Monday.
