Got 2 tickets on my car 1) for parking at fire hydrant and 2) improper display reg sticker the first ticket also mentions the improper display reg sticker, my sticker is just fine on the windshield and I could take a pic of that,
1st question is will the pic be enough evidence to dismiss the ticket and if yes will I be able to fight the fire hydrant ticket because there is false information on it stating that the registration sticker is not good?

Does the fire hydrant ticket specifically reference the registration ticket? I don't see why it would, but that's why I'm asking.

Interesting. I have no experience with this so I can't recommend anything, but if that gets you outta both tickets let us know! If you decide not to fight it yourself, you can try calling S & R Consultants 718-252-7285 & they'll fight it for you. I'm pretty sure that they only charge you if they save you money.

Depends on judge, the point is that you were parked in the 15 feet of the fire hydrant.

A friend got a ticket for expired meter. Ticket says "time first observed 2:51, time of offense 2:59" I have a meter ticket that starts at 3:01, would that let me off the hook? And if so, is there a way to submit it online?

Thanks

I usually contest just to get my moneys' worth. But if info is correct, you have a less than nil chance of getting off.

Maybe confusr them by sending a picture showing you were more than 15 feet from a hydrant.

Let's put it this way: Even if the ticket is completely wrong, there's still little chance you win.
