Visitor’s Guide to beating an NYC parking ticket is for you
About two months ago, Tom Smith from Jones Wisconsin contacted me. Tom and his family drove 1700 miles to NYC and spent a wonderful two weeks sightseeing in our beautiful city. Long story short, Tom was given an NYC parking ticket, and his chariot was towed, for a no standing violation when he parked at his destination in NYC prior to heading for home. The sign that hurt him was one of New York City’s infamous three-headed monsters on a gotcha pole.
For Tom to make the correct parking decision, he would need to know that a more restrictive parking sign beats a less restrictive sign; even if the less restrictive parking sign permits parking. Were you born with this knowledge? I sure have hell wasn’t. There is no place to find this rule/custom except my website.
I fought this absurd parking ticket and won. This parking ticket was dismissed and Tom’s tow charges will be refunded. Yea! (subject of tomorrow’s blog)
