Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.” Samuel Johnson
We frequently hear from our friends and visitors about how difficult it is to fight a parking ticket based upon a missing, defaced or illegible parking sign. Other complaints involve a parking sign magically appearing after you park in a space regulated by a different sign with a different rule; or a conflict between the rule displayed by a parking sign, and the violation inserted on your parking ticket.
How about the requirement to provide overlapping photographs of an entire block, with the front and back of every parking sign to fight a parking ticket dispute. Wouldn’t it be very, very helpful to be empowered with the ability to find the rule on most every parking sign on most every street in NYC? Absolutely.
Here is where you can find the information about parking signs on the DOT Website NYC_DOT Parking Sign Locater
You can plug in any street, cross streets and VOILA. You find every last sign on the entire block, the rule on the sign, and the distance from the beginning of the block to each sign’s location on the block.
For example, we wanted to prove the absence of a parking sign prohibiting “Standing” on Sunday on Third Avenue between 81st Street and 82nd Street.
As you can see from the above screen captures, there aren’t any parking signs on Third Avenue prohibiting parking on Sunday. We win. This is a terrific tool to help you fight against unwarranted parking tickets. Think about using the DOT Parking Sign Locater in conjunction with photographs, and our website interactive map system. It is another weapon in your arsenal to present the proper proof properly, and win.
