A treasure chest full of valuable NYC parking ticket resources on 311
311 describes itself as the “official website of NYC.” NYC has made a major effort to be responsive to smartphone users. You may wish to check out the free, downloadable, 311 App.
NYC 311 has a wide range of valuable tools. For example, NYC 311 can be used to report a broken muni meter. If you find a muni meter is broken when you insert your money, the first thing to do is file a report with 311. The second thing to do is to take photographs of the muni meter screen displaying its status as broken.
Here’s the procedure to follow, if you wish to park for free at the broken muni meter. Believe me, it’s not worth the time, trouble, and NYC parking ticket.
