Parking ticket stats never cease to amaze me
Parking ticket stats make me think, “colossal, immense, jumbo, and prodigious,” because of the massive number of parking tickets issued every year.
The amount of revenue generated by the tickets is huge. “Be still my beating heart.”
Take a gander at these stats and facts and see what you think.

NYC’s fiscal year ends on June 30. Here’s what the preliminary data looks like for FY 2018.

Here’s how the Evil Empire assessed its performance:
- In line with an increase in the number of summonses adjudicated, the number of parking ticket hearings grew by 22 percent to more than 375,000.
- The average turnaround time to issue parking ticket decisions by web, which remained the most popular hearing option, increased from 3.4 days to 4.4 days primarily due to a 25 percent increase in this hearing type.
- At 11 minutes, the turnaround time for in-person parking ticket hearings was two minutes faster
- While the turnaround time for hearings by mail was relatively unchanged at 6.8 days.

- The Department will no longer report data for the indicator ‘Tickets paid before penalty assessed’
- And added an indicator on the usage of its new “Pay or dispute” mobile app that enables motorists to pay parking ticket fines or initiate the dispute process via the app.
- DOF updated Fiscal 2017 data for the three metrics that report on parking ticket resolution within 90 days as well as four-month data for the percent upheld.
I love some of the trends uncovered during the first four months of FY 2018. For example:
- 70,000 more summons were adjudicated between the same 4 month period of FY 2017 and FY 2018
- But sadly there were more people paying their parking tickets, “no questions asked.”
- There was a slightly higher appeal reversal rate in the first 4-months of FY 2018
- There was a significant increase in the appeal reversal rate between FY 2016 and FY 2017
The increase in the number of hearings requested online mean:
- A greater number of tickets to process
- Less time for a judge to spend on each parking ticket
- More mistakes to make
