My pick-up truck weighs less than 5500 pounds
We have a great group of friends who help all of our pick-up truck owners with their questions. I don’t know what I would do without my team of experienced pick-up truck experts. I received some good news today from a client of ours who received a NYC parking ticket for improper registration. She did not have a cap on her less than 5500 pound passenger pick-up truck, and got nailed by one of the uninformed parking ticket warriors.
Do you know why she didn’t cap her cargo space? Because she is not required to cap it, that’s why.
The DMV regs are clear on this issue. If your pick-up truck has an unburdened weight of less than 5500 pounds, you have the choice to register your vehicle as a passenger or a commercial vehicle. If you choose passenger vehicle, you are NOT required to cap it!
When you’re right-FIGHT!
She did. We helped. And, today we got great news from the NYC_DOF. Parking ticket dismissed!
We wish to share how we presented our client’s defense. Remember, being right is not enough to beat your parking ticket. You must present the proper proof, properly to win.
Please help yourself to two of our downloads.
- One is our defense letter and screen capture that beat a parking ticket for improper registration of an uncapped passenger pick-up truck
- The second is the DMV regulations (no email sign up required for your free download)
We have to help each other fight illegal parking tickets. The warriors know the rules. Some choose to issue parking tickets, anyway. Never, ever allow this to happen without a fight.
I’m thinking of compiling a list of the evil warriors who are misusing their authority. I’ll send this list along with a persuasive epistle to one of friendly NYC Councilpersons. This bad behavior has to stop.
One of our pick-up truck friends and experts suggests posting a sign in your window, or on your dashboard announcing to the warriors that your pick-up truck weighs less than 5500 pounds, and according to the DMV regulations, is not required to have a cap for a passenger pick-up truck. It’s worked for our guy. Try it, you’ll like it!
Please join our community of pick-up truck owners. We’d love to hear about your parking and parking ticket experiences in NYC.
