Yeah, but they're exempt in practice, at least in NYC. Here, there are actually "bulk rates" for parking tickets, so the worst offenders pay the least in practice per offense; I'm told it's often as low as $5 per, which makes illegally leaving your truck out in the middle of traffic vastly cheaper than parking it legally.
