When you’re right, FIGHT your NYC unjust parking tickets!
I am highly motivated to help our clients and friends protect their freedom to navigate the mean streets of NYC without the fear of expensive, unwarranted NYC parking tickets. I hope the following information empowers you to take action when the Evil Empire and their warriors violate your rights.
One of our friends replied to an NYC parking ticket tip about the change in the parking rule about pedestrian ramps in the middle of the long block of a “T” intersection. He said, “but it is risky to park in front of the ramp. You will still get a ticket.” What a shame. Here are my recommendations.
Let’s address our Q & A with the Evil Empire published in an earlier blog post
1. Mid-Block, long “T” pedestrian ramps.
Our friend is right. It is still risky to park in front of this type of pedestrian ramp. You may be issued an NYC parking ticket. I urge you not to allow the bad behavior of some parking ticket warriors to infringe upon your freedom to park legally. Fight when you are right. I offer to help anyone who receives a “Mid-Block, long “T” pedestrian ramp fight their parking ticket. You may wish to check out our Facebook page, which provides photographs of the ramps in question. Here’s a link to other blog posts on the subject.
2. Fire Hydrant
I recommend you invest $3.00 in a tape measure because it will save you a $115 parking ticket for parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. Be prepared in advance to fight the bad behavior of a parking ticket warrior who wrongfully issues you a parking ticket for parking too close to a fire hydrant. Here’s a link to our client’s success story.
3. Handicapped Parking
We received some great advice on this issue from one of our friends. He proposes a federal handicapped parking permit law, which uniformly establishes the criteria for issuing handicap parking permits. All States will be required to honor this federal handicap parking permit.
We are in the process of helping a client fight the draconian policy of NYC not to honor handicap permits from out-of-state members of the driving public when parking in NYC. I recommend you shout out your support by writing your councilperson. Let’s all lend a hand in fighting for a change in NYC policy on handicap parking permits.
Parking ticket warriors are hiding behind trees, cars and the like, scampering into congested intersections, scanners in hand, shooting an expensive beam of light at members of the driving public caught inside the box when the light turns red. Shame on you. How about capturing the hearts and minds of the NYC driving public by enforcing the rule against obstructing traffic at the intersection in the manner in which it was written. Better yet, why not lend a hand in eliminating the problem by directing traffic through the intersection.
Please visit the many articles and videos on Larry’s Blog about how to fight a parking ticket for blocking the box.
5. Circle the Block
This one baffles me. Where else in the world do you receive a parking ticket for waiting for a member of the driving public to vacate a parking space? If a person is sitting behind the wheel, with motor running, navigating out of her space, why not permit a driver to wait for the parking space to be available? Please share your parking experiences on this issue so we can formulate a strategy to right this wrong.
Please share your experiences and offer your suggestions to fight this bad behavior. Your recommendations will help us all!
