    Why should nurses receive an exemption permit from parking regulations?
    Gee, I guess because doctors get them? And I am talking visiting nurses, not ones that have 12-hour shifts at a hospital.

    The problem here is that a lot of people replying here are not from NY and don't fully understand the concept of double parking and alternate side parking ... AND the local understandings that evolve from it. One needs to READ the parking signs before parking. If you will need your car on a day that cars double park on one side, you just don't park on the side that double-parkers will block you. In some residential neighborhoods of NYC, all the cars are locally owned and the residents abide by this practice. Try parking on a Tuesday side of the street on a Friday and wanting to get out during the sweep times ... you will get a freaking mouthful ... unless of course you can't find the driver, in which case you're stuck!
    I am pretty sure that most of the posters can understand the infinitely complex concept of traffic regulations relating to parking.

    NYC is not the only city in the world that has complex parking regulations, not all of us ride a horse to work in the mountains of Turkey.

    "Because he gets to do it" is the rationale a child would give to stay up past bed time, not a rationale why nurses giving non emergent care should be exempt from parking regulations.

    I personally would LOVE a parking exemption tag but I cannot find a rationale for one. I was hoping that you would be able to provide me with a logical, well-founded argument as to why nurses should be provided with one.
