Was referring to the one-way streets. On the 2-ways it's a similar idea. Not sure what you're asking.
While everyone's double parked and before the plows clean up, you won't be able to drive down any one way side street. Besides, the way they currently clean the snow won't help anything. Either they'll have to push it onto the double parked cars or the sidewalks.

They can plow up to the curb like they do in most normal places. I agree that the current system is ridicules, instead of having 2 days of extreme annoyance nyc residents now have 2 weeks of it when they get a little snow.

And which NYC street are those getting through?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

So that they shouldn't give 5x points to those who don't?

Sounds like you spent and then realized you didn't activate?

No, but that is most definitely the reason for it. The point is to give those points only to thos who it is a real incentive to them. Someone who isn't incentivized enough to activate isn't incentivized enough to make sure to actually use the card either

Sorry, question was directed toward OP. I +1'd your post. Common sense.

Just a note.  Too late for 2017 Q4.  But you can activate until close to the end of the quarter and all bonus spending within the quarter, even if spent before activation, will get the bonus.
