Parking perks for pregnant women proposed in NYC

A New York City councilman is introducing a bill that would grant special parking rights to women who are having a difficult pregnancy.
Councilman David Greenfield of Brooklyn says that if his bill passes, pregnant women could ask their doctors to sign a note saying they have physical or mobility challenges.

If their doctors sign off, the women would get placards entitling them to park in no-parking zones.

Greenfield decided to introduce the bill after watching his wife struggle through two tough pregnancies. It's similar to laws on the books in at least two states, Georgia and Oklahoma.

Some critics warned that the bill could further complicate the city's mess of parking laws.
