I found this delicious video created by Street Films about parking ticket excuses
Which ones would make your list of parking ticket excuses? How many of these excuses have you used? Did any work? Have you ever persuaded a parking ticket warrior you shouldn’t be issued an NYC parking ticket? If so, how, pray, tell, did you accomplished this feat of magic?
Lights, camera…action! Enjoy.
Here are some spoilers, so don’t read this paragraph if you want to be surprised:
-I’m a firefighter
-I work for the DOT
-I’m a police officer in Long Island
-I’m shooting a movie
As we all know, these excuses don’t work, so why waste ’em. I urge all you not to pay a parking ticket, “no questions asked.” But, if you’re thinking of fighting a ticket, why make up an excuse. Why not do a little homework and offer a winning defense.
For example, I had a guy argue that MLK, Jr.’s B-day is a major legal parking holiday because it should be. Wonderful, I’ll vote for him for Mayor, but now MLK, Jr.’s B-day is only a legal holiday. Period.
For example, I had a guy argue with me that we don’t have to park 15 feet from a fire hydrant. We only have to prove that the Warrior’s guess was wrong. if a Warrior enters 5 feet from the hydrant and we can prove we parked more than 5 feet, we win. Again, he’s got my vote for Mayor but he should have done his homework before making up the rule.
My point is simply that take a little of your valuable time, do your research and find a winning defense, and then fight your parking ticket.
This will keep your money where it belongs_In your pocket.
I bet you can’t beat these three parking tickets. Are you up to the challenge? Click on the link and find out.
