To beat a parking ticket, “Let your fingers do the walking”…on your computer!
I love to hear about parking ticket success stories from members of our NYC driving community. I received an email the other day from a great friend of New York Parking Ticket, that I’d like to share with you:
I want to share with you an easy defense I just used successfully. It is particularly satisfying because my entire argument was based on information provided by NYC government. The agent alleged in the complaint that my car was parked within 15 feet of a hydrant at a particular address. I looked up the address on nyc.gov/bis – which is the Building Information System. The BIS returned the following message,
“*THIS ADDRESS IS NOT IN PROPERTY FILE–CHECK ITS OTHER ADDRESS IF ANY”
I did a screen capture and uploaded the file, all online. As you can see below, ” Defense is persuasive that location of alleged violation does not exist justifying dismissal.” It was gratifying that the City itself was kind enough to provide the tools of my defense. I thought you would appreciate this one.
Kudos to Tom. He was right, fought his parking ticket, used an official NYC resource to present the proper proof, persuasively, and WON!

TIP: I try to present two (2) types of evidence to prove an address doesn’t exist. For example, I’ll use the “Elvis Presley Defense,” NYC Property Map, DOT parking regulations map, (You can find ’em all on our Resource Page) and here’s a fun one to try…iZito.com. I’ve been informed by other friends who have successfully used the US Postal tool for proving an address does not exist.
Remember: “Place of Occurrence” is a required element. If you present the proper proof, persuasively to an NYC parking ticket judge, your parking ticket will be dismissed. Yea!
How do you prove an address doesn’t exist? Share your success story with our driving community.
