Were the renovations to the “Parking ticket online tool” simply a fresh coat of paint?
Or did the changes make it easier and faster to dispute an NYC parking ticket? Spoiler alert, the recent renovations were substantive and very helpful.
- I’ll show you what the new, improved parking ticket tool looks like
- I’ll describe how to use it
Without further adieu, here’s the new parking ticket online tool
The first and most important step in the process is finding the new tool online. Here’s a link to the start page.
The start page:
When your answers to the following questions are, ‘YES,’ you’re ready to fight the good fight online
-Have you prepared the final draft of your defense certification on MS Word, Evernote, Notes, or some other editing tool?
-Are you ready to copy and paste your defense certification in the box on the parking ticket tool?
-Have you prepared your exhibits?
-Are you ready to upload ’em
If so, click the “Dispute a Ticket Online” blue button directly under the page heading in the image above.
You’ll be taken to the page below to tell the Evil Empire what your relationship to the parking ticket is. Here’s what it looks like
If you are the owner or driver of the vehicle, fill in the first square and then click the “Continue” button
Here’s what the page looks like
-Enter the 10-digit violation number in the box and click the grey, “Search” button
You’ll be transported to the page below:
-Copy and past your defense certification in the box labeled, “Enter Defense”
Drag and drop your exhibits here:
Enter your contact information here:
-Review your defense certification
-Review your exhibits by clicking on the file name
Click the submit button (not shown here). You’re all done.
It generally takes about 10-14 days to get the judge’s decision. It will be mailed to your email address.
I really liked the previous iteration of the Tool. But, the new renovations made the Tool
-Much easier to use in general
-Even easier to upload evidence files
- The drag and drop feature makes uploading many files a breeze
- Clicking on the name of the file immediately shows you an image of the exhibit
-The entire dispute is handled on one web page. You no longer leave one webpage and journey to another web page to upload your evidence files.
Kudos to the Evil Empire for making a process that even I, an old dinosaur, can use.
Here’s a link to a compendium of my reviews and descriptions of the prior versions of the Dispute a Parking Ticket Online Tool.
