Will red curbs help cut parking confusion in NYC?

According to CBS, New York City Councilman Vincent Gentile has introduced a bill to paint the city's curbs red in No Parking zones at fire hydrants and bus stops to make them clearer for drivers. "New Yorkers usually don’t carry a tape measure with them to measure how far away they are from a hydrant or whether they’re within a bus stop,” Gentile said. “Why can’t we go back to what we used to have and revive the old system where you actually paint the curb by the fire hydrant or the bus stop, showing where you cannot park?”  

Gentile has not yet estimated the cost of the project.  The Department of Transportation says it will review proposal

What do you think about red painted curbs?  Beneficial to drivers or not worth the cost?
