You’ve been appointed as the judge of a fire hydrant parking ticket case
It’s your first day on the job. You bought a new suit, shined your old shoes, and had your wife tie your tie. You are totally ready and raring to go. Here’s your first NYC parking ticket case. It involves an NYC fire hydrant.
Good morning, Your Honor. I received an NYC parking ticket for a violation against parking alongside one of those ubiquitous fire pumps. But, it was covered by a huge construction cone making it completely invisible. I had no way of knowing there was a hydrant under the cone. I wouldn’t have parked there if I saw the hydrant. Here are photographs confirming my testimony. Therefore, I respectfully ask a dismissal my NYC parking ticket.”
Thank you, sir. I’ve considered the testimony of the defendant and the photographs submitted in support of his defense.
I find the defendant……Guilty. Yikes!
Another invisible fire hydrant case, our hard-charging friend beat his parking ticket.
You be the judge. How would you rule on invisible fire hydrant cases?
Please comment. Your opinion is helpful to all of us.
