In LA it added to the time.
In NYC I don't think it adds to the existing time.

In NYC most of them are munimeters where you pay and get a ticket to display in your car, so 2 swipes wont get you any extra time, it will just give you two tickets that expire the same time.

math is not correct on op
its either 1.7 per point on sapphire or 10 points per transaction on freedom

Freedom is the same points as SP as long as you have an open SP card. Therefore, the 10 freedom points are worth 17 cents in this equation.

Another cool thing with these meters:

Someone  didn't pay for parking and got a ticket. She walked over to the someone that was leaving, asked him for his meter ticket and is disputing the ticket :D saying she payed the meter :)

Doubt that'll work. Even if this person ACTUALLY paid the meter, the fact that it was not visible to the officer in the location it's required to be means she'll lose her appeal.

Huh??? If a police officer missed a paper it's his negligence! If an officer makes a mistake they take the blame. If he calls your car a Chevy and its not, you get off. That how it works.

What happens if when the door closed, the paper flew down by accident???


And btw she's already 1 for 1. Now going for 2 for 2 :)

No, that's not how it works.

If it's the officer's word against yours (which it is in this case), you lose. Period.

She should consider herself very lucky that she won one of them.

Even though you have a receipt showing you paid the munimeter? Why?

Because that simply means it wasn't in the place it was legally required to be.

A parking officer is not required to conduct a full search of your car prior to issuing you a ticket.

1. But it isn't just your word against his, since you're proving you had the receipt, why would you intentionally not display it if you already paid for it?
2. Isn't the fine to discourage people who abuse the metered parking and don't pay? If I'm paid (and can prove it with the receipt) why shouldn't I get my ticket waived?

1) "Place receipt on driverís side dashboard with printed side facing up" Source.

It's just as much your responsibility to place it in the above-place as it is for you to purchase your ticket in the first place. I'd bet dollar to donuts that the ticket issued says receipt was "not displayed" or "not visible" not that it was "not purchased." If it ain't there, tough noogies.

2) See above.

NYCs parking enforcement program is far from perfect. Im sure they look the other way as long as you send the ticket in. Perhaps theres some sort of limit (I doubt it). Its no secret that there are many dummies walking the streets issuing tickets. The city has to pick their fights I'd say. I'm sure the percentage of people who go looking for another ticket is quite small.

@ AJK you have a receipt, you should win. Maybe the police officer just isn't see it.

I'll keep you guys updated on the 2 for 2
