Parking ticket faq’s are a great way to learn and save
Parking ticket faqs. A driver faces unexpected challenges every time they saddle up their Bronco for a drive. Why? Because eventually, they park their car and hope that they don’t get a parking ticket.
Will they succeed? Maybe. But, there are 10 million parking tickets issued every year that suggest they will guess wrong.
Above all, these parking ticket faqs give you reliable answers to important questions about parking safely in NYC. Therefore, read the 10 tips carefully, apply them correctly, and save your secret supply of bitcoin. (Instead of paying for costly NYC parking tickets).
It is my aspiration that these faqs will motivate you to dig deeper and learn the parking rules that you encounter while parking in NYC.
“School Days” means the rule is in effect on all days that school is in session or open for any other activity, between 7 am – 4 pm.
Here’s what NYC311 has to say:
“Parking is allowed in school zones when school is in recess. Parking restrictions would remain in effect. However, you should be aware that specific schools may be open on holidays and summer vacations.
Parking restrictions remain in effect while schools are doing remote learning.
Also, when schools are open for summer sessions, teacher meetings, or similar activities, the parking regulations apply on such days, even if students aren’t attending. You should contact the specific school to verify that it’s in recess.
To look up information for a public school, go to the School Finder page.
Let’s go to the NYC311 statement:
“On days when ASP is in effect, residential “side streets” without meters will not be cleaned more than once a week on each side.
If a side of a street has an ASP sign showing multiple days, street cleaning regulations will be in effect on that side of the street only on the latest day posted on the sign.
For example, if the ASP sign says the side of the street is cleaned on Mondays and Thursdays, you only have to move your car from that side of the street on Thursday.
There are no changes to:
-Streets that have just one day of ASP regulations on each side
-Commercial streets or metered areas
Learn more about Alternate Side Parking reform.
These new ASP reform rules will continue when ASP is in effect until further notice. The City will continue to assess cleanliness conditions to decide whether to extend or modify the new rules.”
If a parking sign does not display the specific days or hours, the rule is in effect on all days and during all hours.
Yes, but the car must be registered to the property owner’s name at the property’s address.
A curb is considered part of the roadway. So, if you park your car with two tires on the curb, you should not get a sidewalk parking ticket. However, it will be challenging to prove that your tires were
not on the sidewalk at the time when the warrior or cop issued the ticket.
Then the rule regulates the curb space in both directions from the parking sign.
“…during the period from sunrise to sunset, if standing is not otherwise prohibited, the operator of a passenger car may stand the vehicle alongside a fire hydrant provided that the operator remains in the operator’s seat ready for immediate operation of the vehicle at all times and starts the motor of the car on hearing the approach of fire apparatus, and provided further, that the operator shall immediately remove the car from alongside the fire hydrant when instructed to do so by any member of the police, fire, or other municipal department acting in his/her official capacity.”
The length of a bus stop varies from block to block.
A bus stop starts at the bus stop sign and goes in the direction of the arrow(s) on the sign until the next parking sign, or if none, the end of a block. The rule is in effect all days and all times.
A driver can stop temporarily to drop off or pick up a passenger expeditiously but must not block an incoming or outgoing bus and leave the bus stop area immediately.
A bus stop is a no-standing zone. So, you can’t pick up personal property (only people).
I firmly recommend not dropping off or picking up passengers at the bus stop.
Absolutely. The Evil Empire deserves kudos for the terrific job creating an online tool to submit your defense certification and exhibits to dispute a parking ticket. Uploading exhibits is a breeze.
However, I recommend preparing your defense certification in a separate editor (such as Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, Apple notes, or Evernote, etc. and cutting and pasting the document in the space provided.
