FWIW if you are using it to drop off a child to school and get a ticket, school might be able to issue a letter or something to say you are an authorized vehicle.

Nope, I have commercial plates & can park at all No Parking spots (except handicapped), but I can't park at most No Standing spots.

When alternate side parking is in effect. Don't know if that's the law, or they just officially don't enforce it because it's not possible otherwise.

I'm wondering legally because I received a double parking ticket and I read somewhere that if either there is no loading or unloading zone within 100ft on either side or no spaces its legal
So I'm wondering if this is true

During alternate side it's not officially legal. Though many places they won't give tickets as a courtesy.

Correct. Vast majority of officers won't (unless it's a school block).  That's why it is the prevalent minhag in the city, but if you happen to get a ticket, don't count on getting away with it.

I got a $115 ticket for "double parking" during alternate side times.

The entire block was double parked (standard practice on this block), but the ticket was only given to cars that were opposite of a "no parking" area.

Technically it's not ever legal, but the whole city does it.

What is the recommended course of action?
I'm thinking to try the robot lawyer (donotpay.CO.uk (http://donotpay.CO.uk)), what do you think?

(Even the cop driving behind her could not understand why she ticketed...)

there was just a case of this on the news a mnth ago saying how in one of the state's there was speeding cameras  was set at 33 when u really could go 35-36 without a ticket and there would be no way to say not! Bec it was pre set and even a ticket saying ur speed of 37(which was adding 1-2 numbers to ur speed) and how u could only go 35-36(u can't fight the sped camera bec supposedly it's not supposed to lie!suppose to be a Radar detector -not a lie detector! ) and as well as the red light cameras they went from green and a second of yellow basically not a second to spare from green to red which caused everyone who would go in the last few seconds an automatic ticket of it being red! It's suppose to be a delay of 2-3 seconds to pass the intersection! The jury ruled that all the fines for that year or some time period be returned! Crazy story!

Wow long story. If someone does that in NY, let's just say I would make a nice amount of money :)
Btw, there is a place in Brooklyn that I had gotten several red light tickets over the span of a few years so I felt that it must be the yellow is very short so I submitted a request for the DOT to review the yellow light and they said it meets the 3 second requirement. However I think it's a highway type road and the yellow light should be longer but I'm not fighting city hall..

what does it take to fight city hall? It's usually the person with a random story on the news who caused the city hall to change that particular thing and this time it could be you who caused the yellow light! :-X ;)

Not sure what you mean by "registration" not being filled in. VIN only gets filled in when there is no license plate or registration sticker.

That being said, I would give it at least a 50% chance that the ticket is defective (which is all you need to claim in defense: "defective ticket"). Most cops who are not "brownies" (are they still called that?) don't know how to write a parking ticket that is not defective.

In my exp, NY will get rental companies address from other states database and mail them the ticket and they will forward you the fine plus a fee for having to deal with it for you. If I were you I'd pay right away or plead not guilty online nycserv.nyc.gov

Do you have to pay again in your new zone?
On the paper payment system do have to buy it from the closest machine?

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.

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)

The registration has to be "affixed to the windshield". So I've used tape to hold it in place temporarily.

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?

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.

My car was towed for blocking a driveway. 311 has not information nor the local precinct. I got the towing company from the landlord, but I suspect it was towed without being ticketed, which is theft. How can I find out if a summons was issued since it can take a few days to show up in the system? Any information would be helpful as I want to know as much as I can before retrieving the car.
This is in Brooklyn.
Please don't ask why I blocked a driveway.

And that's why you got to make a sharp right when you know your going through a red light camera, or a leaf stuck into your license plate, and lastly buy a spray which blurs the plate when driving.

  Wow, I would think all of nyc is the same and surrounding areas at $50.

For the future a simple leaf in your plate, snow, the spray, a bike rack, and if you realize your going through an intersection with a light make a sharp right turn to turn ur car on your side which would block your plate from the camera. Or lastly attach a string to the bottom of the plate and pull it from in your car through the trunk when you go through a light to pull your plate upward and block the camera.

   Once your ticket has a picture of the red light camera then not much to do, Unless there was an emergency vehicle or you had an emergency which required you to be at the.. and you have documents..

Or your vehicle was stolen God forbid or a creative answer which would justify to why your car is pictured going through a red light. Good luck!

Well, there is a law officially that you need to have a bike on the rack, but hard to see how they enforce that as even if one should get a ticket, you can say I'm on my way to pick up some bikes or just dropped off the kids and..you got to be creative to beat the system.
 And heard about the spray so many times, never tried it myself, but they were selling it at one point. Maybe it can be found online.
 I used to see the plate covers more often, haven't seen them in a while(those blurry plate covers.)
 Another idea is to crack the plastic black Frame that goes around the plate and have it hang down onto one of the letters/numbers, which causes one symbol not to be seen, and you can stick some tape or something sticky on the back of it to keep it stiff against one letter, so even for a cop they will think it just broke, another car hit yours and cracked it.
 An invention came from using your head. Same here.. ;)

So apparently it's not even possible to plead not guilty, in Nassau there is no option for pleading not guilty. The only option besdies paying is signing an affidavit stating that the plates were stolen or the Operator of vehicle received a ticket for this infraction from a law enforcement officer. Seems there is really no option to request a hearing.

Ticket for double parking has wrong address (address listed on the ticket is in different neighborhood) which seems to contradict the precinct listed on the ticket, and probably if matched with tickets issued by same agent before and after, would prove it impossible for agent to have been at said location.

Here's a Google Maps photo (https://www.google.com/maps/place/540+Carroll+St,+Brooklyn,+NY+11215/@40.6763541,-73.98444,3a,30y,230.2h,92.01t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sSlN_PIp-92FrsLA1vdmwvA!2e0!3e11!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c25a555f0828ad:0x8c07611958de4289!8m2!3d40.6761799!4d-73.9845763). The ticket I received says 540 Carroll Street.

I guess your best proof will be to go to maps.nyc.gov and print out the map showing there is no such address

But just like the deed says, such an address does TECHNICALLY exist, itís just the same block and lot as 538 and 542, but thereís no such number on any building.

"place of occurrence" needs to be a physical address not a technical one.

How are you differentiating physical from technical? If the ticket writer got it technically correct then the ticket may be upheld even if the numbers posted on the building is different.

The best bet in such a case would not to bring up the fact that it was technically correct.

Agreed. Tried fighting these by showing up. Was a waste of time. Save yourself the hassle and just pay. I try to fight every ticket and win about half the time but the cameras are tough to beat.
Oh, they also charge a 6 dollar "convenience" fee when paying online with a cc. Disgusting

Yep. I was in the same boat. $150 and on top of that a "convenience fee"?! They can't cover the "fee" somewhere in the $150 they are making? Pigs.

If you pay through the nyc's website they charge an extra 2% if paying by card, no fee by echeck.  https://www1.nyc.gov/nyc-resources/service/2195/pay-a-parking-ticket
I do some business with a company that deals with nyc tickets for over 25 years.
If anyone would like I could get you info you could just give plate number and they could let you know what can be done.

My ticket was on long island so it's not a nyc ticket

I believe in Long Island if you pay the court over the phone the fee is less then the website charges.

As in reducing the ticket? Or trying to?

They deal mostly with NYC parking violations, they go to court and try to dismiss them, and they put a penalty hold until after hearing.  They don't reduce parking tickets anymore, (except for penalties, which sometimes could). They do lots of commercial company's as they have certain regulations.

As in USPS, FedEx, UPS and the rest. These guys get more tickets than the packages they deliver, so I would assume they pay 10 or 20% in fees of the ticket amounts they get or something to that effect?

Ups, Fedex and the like, have a deal with the city, where they give up there right for a hearing in return for dismissal or reduced fine amounts that are preset depending on violation type.

I submitted screenshots from Google Maps showing that the last address posted on the block is 538.

Unfortunately, this is what I got:

The respondent has been charged with violating Traffic Rule 4-08(f)(1) which prohibits standing or parking a vehicle on the roadway side of a vehicle stopped, standing or parked at the curb. Respondent denies the violation charged. Respondentís claim that he was never at this location is not supported by persuasive evidence. Respondent denies the violation charged. Respondentís claim that
was never at this location is not supported by persuasive evidence. Respondent claims location does not exist. NYC map portal disagrees. Not persuasive.

Apparently the ALJ consulted a "NYC Map Portal" that is an official source and thus more authoritative than the private Google Maps service, leading to that conclusion. That seems to be what the ALJ is indicating.

You do have the right to appeal any guilty finding, though I don't know what the odds are of overturning that judgement.

One old guy who brought his truck to the shop for the new brake kit and 4wd parts (https://4wheelonline.com) installation used to work for Fedex and got numerous fine as well. True the company got the deal with the city for the violation of their fleet.
can it get more spammy ?

If i got a ticket for parking a commercial vehicle on a residential street for $65 and then another $80 something dollars for interest and fines, Now i went and sold that vehicle and took off those plates and never used them again, i surrendered them to the dmv. will that effect my other cars, or that will stay separate and i dont have to worry about that ticket anymore?

If the other plates are registered to the same name it would still effect your other vehicles. you can check here to see if they are linked if putting other plate if com comes up. https://nycserv.nyc.gov/NYCServWeb/NYCSERVMain

How does the "judge" decide whether or not you were? The cop wrote "no activity" in the comments. Do they have any sort of records or is it a coin toss?

Coin toss. It all comes down to whether they believe you or the ticket. The "no activity" will hurt your case as it smacks directly into your defense. You could say you were in the back of your car by the trunk helping your passenger and by the time you got around to the front he already scanned your registration. It doesn't cost anything to fight the ticket so you might as well try but it sounds like your chances are pretty slim.

I renewed my registration on time, but forgot to affix the new registration sticker to my windshield. I now received a parking ticket for an expired registration. Can I beat this by submitting email proof that I renewed on time and that my registration was up-to-date, or am I still on the hook because technically speaking my car was parked on a city street showing an expired registration?

I think as long as your car was registered you should win. It's like if you get pulled over and left your license at home you wouldn't get a driving without a license. You could say you registered your car but hadn't received the new registration in the mail yet.

My sister had the same story and the judge responded that you can't drive or park a car on the city street without a current sticker on the window. The fact that the it was registered at the time of the ticket doesn't help. By all means, try to fight it, but just letting you know her experience.

Such chutzpah. As if paying state, city and sales tax wasn't enough. Good luck to the person fighting it.

I just got a ticket for the sticker not being affixed to the windshield and instead was resting on the dashboard. I was waiting until i can get hold of goo gone to remove the old sticky residue to affix the new one properly. The registration was in the exact spot it should be just was on the dashboard. I affixed it to the windshield immediately after receiving the ticket and obviously it is not affixed well because of the old residue still there. Anything I can do to fight it?
