New York City small business owners are seeking to end the city's "clear curb" program, which prohibits delivery in front of businesses during the morning and afternoon rush hours, a total of six business hours. The initiative was meant to clear traffic, but the owners say it's a disaster for them.

The pilot program started in March. Now, two months in, small business owners complain they have suffered a 20 percent hit.

They say customers who have been ticketed or towed are staying away, and word about the tickets has spread quickly. — Michelle Charlesworth, ABC7 New York
