Here in NYC, I’ve noticed they don’t seem to be ticketing cars even though alternate side is back in effect as of this week. And I’ve seen no meter maids in my neighborhood since I came back from the sticks a few weeks ago. Granted I’m in the outer boroughs and have seen a few traffic enforcement cars and officers while in Manhattan, but not anywhere near the amount there used to be.
Even major intersections that typically have someone directing traffic have nobody there now. It’s just not needed. Traffic seems to have been reduced by like %70-80.
Nypd meter maids definitely still write tickets In nyc but not as many and not nearly as frequently . Your comment is from 3 weeks ago, traffic is atrocious as of end of July 2020
