Learning the NYC parking ticket rules takes relentless repetition
“School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Readin’ and ‘ritin’ and ‘rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hickory stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate, “I love you, Joe”
When we were a couple of kids”
I am thrilled to share some good news with our NYC driving community. There has been a significant improvement in your answers to our website quickie parking ticket quizzes from when we posted the quizzes. Nicely done.
But, we gotta keep at it. There is still work to be done, to be done.
Are you making these mistakes? Or, are you getting the rules right? Here are some of the results
#1: The correct answer is TRUE. The overwhelming majority of respondents got this question correct. (the word is “INSTALLATION”…sorry about the cut-off). This law is a vital addition to your parking ticket toolbox. Keep it handy when a newly installed parking sign tries to steal your dough.
#2: The correct answer is FALSE. It is LEGAL to park in front of a pedestrian ramp (curb cut) located in the middle of the block without a marked crosswalk, traffic signs or devices regulating traffic. Rogue Warriors are still issuing these scam parking tickets. Please…Don’t be fooled. Fight ’em.
#3: The correct answer is TRUE. Making a turn is a winning defense to a blocking the box parking ticket. How do you prove it?
