New York City Council Passes Measures To Ease Congestion Created By Delivery Trucks

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- There's a new push in New York City to ease congestion created by delivery trucks.

City Council has passed multiple new measures to stop online delivery trucks from blocking streets and sidewalks.

Part of the plan includes loading-only parking spots in neighborhoods.

The legislation also calls for micro-distribution centers, which would allow drivers to unload packages from large trucks onto smaller vehicles for home drop-off.
