The NYC parking tickets quiz results may surprise you
I love “open-website” quizzes. They provide a super opportunity to learn the holes we have to plug in our parking ticket knowledge base.
This NYC parking tickets quiz consisted of 10 questions. All of the correct answers were findable on the website. Your reward for taking the time to master the rules is that your hard earned cash remains where it belongs…in your wallet. Who doesn’t like cash?
Parking ticket quiz questions and answers
100% of all quiz-takers answered question #10 correctly:
Only 52% of all quiz-takers answered question #3 correctly
#3_ It is LEGAL to park in front of a curb cut located mid-block, with no marked crosswalk, and no traffic signs or devices regulating traffic.
-The driving public is still finding it difficult to learn the difference between “legal” and “illegal” curb cuts. #3 is TRUE.
-Plate type is the only required element.
100% of all quiz-takers knew the bus stop rule (major kudos!)
#6: A bus stop zone starts at the bus stop sign, and extends in the direction of the arrow(s) on the bus stop parking sign until the next parking sign, or if no next parking sign, the end of the block.
Only 57% of all quiz-takers got this one right
#7: You can only be issued 2 parking tickets per day for a “status” parking violation “Status” violations relate to expired registration stickers, expired inspection stickers, broken equipment, etc.).
-The correct answer is that you can only be issued one per day (or 24 hours), not two.
I was really thrilled about the results…Much better than the last quiz. I’d love to hear from our quiz-takers with some feedback, questions, insights about why they got ’em right or more importantly, why they got ’em wrong.
Let’s keep working. My big hairy goal is 100% for !00% of the quiz takers!
You may wish to take a gander at the brand new, re-designed NYC Department of Finance Website (I helped with the re-design process). I’d love to know whether you were able to find the section on parking tickets? Please share your opinions.
