New Muni Meter Laws
The NY City Council has taken a more enlightened view towards the NYC driving public. That is to say, the NY City Council passed a number of quality of life muni meter laws that make parking at muni meters less stressful and less costly. For example, the city council enacted laws granting:
- 5 minutes to purchase time on a muni-meter
- You can beat a muni-meter ticket if the time on the receipt was within 5 minutes of the time the ticket was issued
- 5 minutes to move a vehicle after the end of the time on the muni-meter receipt
- A dismissal of an NYC parking ticket for failure to display upon submission of a properly paid receipt
In other words, a driver can search for the parking ticket warrior that issued the ticket. And, show her a valid receipt. Therefore, the warrior can delete the ticket
However, I don’t recommend this option of searching for the warrior. Most importantly there are too many bad things can happen. I would fight the ticket online. You’ll win.
It behooves all of us to learn these new laws so that we can keep our money where it belongs, in our wallets.
