MANHATTAN - Most city drivers have experienced the frustrations of trying to understand parking signs in the city, but now the Department of Transportation (DOT) is giving some of those signs a makeover.

The DOT unveiled the new signs in Midtown today. Officials say they simplified the signs and made them easier for drivers to understand.

The new signs will replace more than 6,000 older versions that had different colors, typefaces, font sizes and confusing phrasing.

The signs will be installed throughout Manhattan and in paid commercial parking areas.
