State Senator Tony Avella was joined by Transportation Alternatives’ general counsel Juan Martinez, right, in dicing his parking placard and calling upon the state legislature to issue boards with barcodes.

Avella has introduced in the state Senate a bill that would require all parking placards issued by the state of New York have a barcode to allow traffic enforcement agents to confirm their validity.

While these placards are meant to be used for official business purposes only, hundreds of placards have gone into circulation, including fraudulent ones, Avella said.

Welcome to the discussion.
