Knowledge of NYC parking ticket rules is power
Joe’s parking ticket story. Joe and his buddy were cruising in circles for more than 20 minutes when a parking space miraculously appeared in front of a fire hydrant. As Joe pulls into the parking space, his buddy warned Joe about getting a parking ticket and paying a hefty fine for parking within 15 feet of a pump.
“Not to worry,” says Joe. “You are permitted to park within 15 feet of an NYC fire hydrant, as long as a licensed driver remains in the car, sitting behind the wheel, with the car keys, ready to move upon request, between sunrise and sunset”
The rogue warrior appeared on the scene
Joe’s buddy jumps out of the car and runs off to pick up a small package from a customer, whose business is located nearby.
In an NY minute, a rogue warrior appeared and issued Joe a scam fire hydrant ticket. Joe bites his tongue and watches in silence as the warrior placed the dastardly orange epistle under the windshield wiper of his car
When you’re right, fight
And Joe did (with our help) and won. The tipping point was the warrior’s attempt to embellish Joe’s parking crime, and diminish Joe’s credibility by entering on the parking ticket, “DRIVE OFF.”
“DRIVE OFF” generally connotes the operator left the scene before the parking ticket is served.
However, in Joe’s case, how can Joe “DRIVE OFF” unless he was sitting behind the wheel of his car, with the keys, able to move his vehicle upon request to do so, between sunrise and sunset? The rogue warrior’s blunder proved Joe’s defense to the parking ticket.
Game, set, match…NYC parking ticket dismissed!
