THE BRONX - Alternate side parking rules may be doing more harm than good, according to a study by researchers at New York University.

The report says street cleaning increases driving 7.1 percent on average.

According to the report, the rules may make residents with cars drive more than they planned to or use personal vehicles when they would have taken mass transit instead. The study also says that drivers are more likely to drive on street cleaning days in places where street parking is scarce.
