You’ve been appointed as the judge of a fire hydrant parking ticket case
It’s your first day on the job. A new suit, shined your shoes, and you are ready and raring to go. Here’s your first NYC parking ticket case.
Good morning, Your Honor. I received an NYC parking ticket for a violation against parking alongside a fire hydrant. The fire hydrant was covered by a huge construction cone; making it completely invisible. I had no way of knowing there was a fire hydrant at the location. I would never have parked there had I seen the hydrant. Here are photographs confirming my testimony. Therefore, I respectfully request a dismissal my NYC parking ticket.”
Thank you, sir. I’ve considered the testimony of the defendant, along with the photographs submitted in support of his testimony. I find the defendant……Guilty
In another invisible fire hydrant case, our hard-charging friend beat his parking ticket. Here’s the story
You be the judge. How would you rule on invisible fire hydrant cases?
Please comment. Your opinion is helpful to all of us.
