Got a meter ticket even though I was in an active session (Paid) in a different zone (New App).
Anyone know the law.
Do you have to pay again in your new zone?
On the paper payment system do have to buy it from the closest machine?
If you buy a 2-hour paper in a 1-hour max spot, Can they fine you without writing they saw the car there for more than 1 hour?
That would be so annoying if they did that, though, come to think of it, that's probably the reason they added the mobile parking option.

Not a parking ticket but I got it while I was parked
Got a ticket  for improper display of regstration sticker
My registration is expiring 8/9/17and I already had my new one expiring 8/2019 so I took of the original one and put the new one on the dashboard but didn't apply the sticker yet since I wanted to apply gogo and clean the glass before placing the new one. It was 100% visible
This was in NYC  4-08(j)(3)

Definitely a downside of the app
Should be able to dispute ticket using the app receipt and a screenshot of that NYC page

Is there new rules outlining the use of the new NYC parking app?
As the way the code was written till now not displaying a Muni meter receipt was the reason for the fine

I know I'm responding too late for this poster.
The registration has to be "affixed to the windshield". So I've used tape to hold it in place temporarily.

And my summons was sustained. This is the explanation

The respondent has been charged with violating Traffic Rule 4-08(h)(1) by permitting a vehicle to be parked in a parking space controlled by a parking-meter in excess of the amount of time indicated on a receipt or tag purchased from such machine, or failed to display such receipt or tag at municipal on-street or off-street parking spaces where indicated by posted signs. Respondent testifies that the vehicle was authorized to park in the zone posted where the summons was issued, because they paid for parking, and submits a meter parking application receipt. Respondentís defense is not persuasive. The summons sets forth a prima facie case. Issuer states that the zone for which time was purchased did not match the zone in which the vehicle was actually parked, and there is no persuasive evidence to the contrary. The transfer of parking time provisions in NYC Traffic Rules is inapplicable with respect to time purchased through the meter parking application. Summons sustained.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
