I'm trying the color claim again.  There was really nothing better for this one.
How often do you get parking tickets?
Do you include it when you calculate expenses for your commute to work?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

This one I got for trying to shave a few bucks by parking on street at the pediatrician instead of in the lot.  I didn't think it was possible that it would take more than 45 minutes to get a shot, but it did.

The judge told me straight out that color doesn't matter, only registration and I think location.
ETA: This happened in Brooklyn

Just reading this thread now. I once got a ticket for parking in a bus stop. I was so far away from the bus stop that someone else parked in front of me thinking they also weren't in a bus stop (they got a ticket Also).  I went and printed out a picture from Google maps showing the address the ticket stated i was parked in front of and highlighted how far it was from the bus stop and mailed it in. All i got back was the standard insufficient evidence provided...

This was in boston. 

Also, I'm not tayning that I should get off on a technicality. I'm saying that they should conclude that the whole thing was a mistake.

When I got a ticket for parking at a bus stop, but it was really not by the bus stop but by the meter section (sign missing). I went down to fight it (downtown Brooklyn) with pictures and a report of where signs should be on the block (totally not understandable, but I brought it). The longest time was in driving back and forth. Once there I was called in in no time, argued my points (had a little back and forth) and won. BTW, the judge asked me where it says in the report about the signs and I just pointed anyway as if I knew what I was talking about. I really think if you're in the right, or can show you might be, if you can spare the time to go down it may save you some bucks.

Its usually not worth the time and effort that's what's so annoying...

For the $135 ticket I thought it was.

Read the ticket closely

Find any little inaccuracy.

Even the misspelling of one thing will work

Not being a perjurer?  That's always an option. I'd rather pay $135 than commit perjury, just sayin'

i was thinking that except that there is no other way to prove i wasnt doing what the ticket said i was doing... so they might accept... as far as perjury... meh
