No Standing Parking Ticket and Tow
John, a real nice guy, sent an email to us yesterday advising he was given a No Standing Parking Ticket and his car was towed for parking in a space regulated by two signs on a gotcha pole (I really hate it when cars get towed). John sent us an excellent photograph of the gotcha pole and asked:
“Is there any way to beat this ticket for no standing, so I can recover my tow tax”
I looked at the sign, hoping it would tell me its parking ticket Achilles heel. No such luck. After completing my deliberations, I advised John…
What would advise John?
Before I share my answer, take a couple of minutes and let us know your opinion:
- Does John have a reasonable shot at beating this evil orange epistle charging him with the parking crime of “NO Standing”
- Would you advise John to fight? If so, what defense do you suggest?
- Would you advise John to apply for a reduced fine, and lose any chance of recovering his tow tax?
Here’s John’s photo of the parking ticket crime scene
[Larry’s note: The red sign on the top says,”No standing anytime, with arrows pointing in both directions. The sign below says,”Night regulations” and the street cleaning sign’s time limits are 5 A.M. to 7 A.M. with arrows pointing in both directions.]
John needs your help. What would you advise?
Are you up to another challenge? I bet you can’t beat these parking tickets.
