Here's a Google Maps photo. The ticket I received says 540 Carroll Street.

Property deed:



So technically the address exists, but there's no such address number posted.
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.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

"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.

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?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

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.

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

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 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

Youre allowed to load or unload passengers in a bus stop.
