NYPD Revises Parade Regulations
Written by BillDozer   

The New York City Police Department has released its revisions for their controversial changes to the Parade Permit Regulations. This revision comes two months after the NYPD withdrew its original proposed regulation change, amid vocal public disapproval.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has endorsed these new revisions, despite their mild changes from the originally contested regulation changes.

here is the text of the new revision, as posted by Time's Up:

New material is { }. Deletions are indicated by [ ].

Section 1. Subdivision (a) of section 19-02 of Title 38 of the Official Compilation of the Rules of the City of New York is amended to read as follows:

(a) A "parade [or procession]" is: 1) any [march, motorcade, caravan, promenade, foot or bicycle race, or similar event of any kind,] { procession or race which consists of a group of ten or more pedestrians, vehicles, bicycles or other devices moved by human power, or ridden or herded animals proceeding together } upon any public street or roadway { for more than two city blocks in a manner that does not comply with all applicable traffic laws, rules and regulations; or 2) any procession or race which consists of a recognizable group of 30 or more vehicles, bicycles or other devices moved by human power, or ridden or herded animals proceeding together upon any public street or roadway.}

Section 2. Seciton 19-02 of Title 38 of the Official Compilation of the Rules of the City of New York is amended to add new subdivision (e) and (f) to read as follows:

{ (e) "Fifth Avenue" shall mean Fifth Avenue in the borough of Manhattan south of 114th Street and north of 15th Street. }

{ (f) "Applicant" shall mean the person or entity that applies for a permit authorizing a parade. Any person or entity responsible for organizing a parade, or any person or entity that publicizes a parade through advertisements or other means of mass communication, is authorized to act as the applicant. }

OnNYturf has something to say about it: You can't polish a turd.
