Today, New Yorkers with cars will go through the now-familiar process of not getting in their cars, not pulling them over to the opposite side of the street to double-park, not waiting with their vehicles long after the city sanitation trucks have passed (for fear of parking too early and getting a ticket), and then not struggling to find a new parking spot when the chaos has finally subsided.
