You can beat a parking ticket for no standing or no parking
That is to say, learning what a driver can do in these two zones is vital to your wallet’s safety.
For example, stopping, standing, and parking is the same activity in NYC. These three different labels still mean that you have halted your chariot.
O.K. Larry, what was in your coffee this morning? What else do you want us to believe? Any more parking ticket myths to debunk?
Larry replies to Larry: “My iced coffee was black, and I’m happy to go myth debunking. You are stopping, standing, and parking your vehicle if you:”
- Stop your car and remain seated behind the wheel
- Stop your car and remain seated behind the wheel with the engine running
- Stop your car, jump out, and help your passenger carry her groceries into the house
- Stop your car, drop off your passenger, and wait for him to finish shopping
All of these activities will help you win an NYC parking ticket.
Above all, learning which activities you can or cannot perform in these three zones are helpful and money-saving.
In conclusion, understanding the activities you can and cannot perform will save your mucho bucko’s. Likewise, if you halt your car for any reason, even to avoid striking a small animal, you are stopping, standing, and parking in NYC.
If you get a no-standing or no-parking ticket while you stop temporarily to drop off your Aunt Tillie in a no-standing or no-parking zone and leave the area expeditiously, you can beat that parking ticket! Most importantly, you gotta present the proper proof properly to win.
And, you can even drop off your Aunt Tillie and her stuff in a no parking zone (but you can’t drop off people and their stuff in a no-standing zone).
When you’re right- FIGHT.
