Please do not try this on your own without the assistance of an expert. It’s too dangerous. Our terrific client was so angry about the injustice of being pummeled with an NYC parking ticket for double parking while he stopped for twenty seconds to drop off his wife, he decided to fight the parking ticket, period!
I explained at the present time, most people, parking ticket judges and experts argue double parking is always prohibited.
Our client asked, “What do I believe?”
I believe the double parking rule is a no standing/no parking violation. Stop, drop and go is a defense to all no standing/no parking violations. Ergo, since you stopped temporarily to drop off your wife, I do not believe you are guilty of double parking.
But, your chances of beating a parking ticket for double parking is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. You may be tilting at windmills.
He tilted and beat the double parking ticket
The decision to fight an NYC parking ticket is rarely about the money. It is about principles, injustice, and fighting to take control of the highways of NYC from the Darth Vader’s. Our client was right and fought to prove it.
Kudos to the parking ticket judge who did what he thought was right, didn’t succumb to the DOF pressures and dismissed the parking ticket.
