You want them to push a law that allows double parking?

No but it's a unofficial courtesy (there aren't enough spots otherwise) and they may help with the ticket.

Long shot, but does anyone have a muni meter receipt covering December 13 at 1:00pm?
I got to my car with the receipt just as the meter maid was issuing a ticket. She walked away, so I assumed she hadnít issued a ticket. Now when I checked my tickets I see that she did issue one.

There's a WhatsApp group / telegram group for this I just don't have the link.

You could have bought a ticket? 5 min grace period?

You can fight it because it says on the ticket that if the driver was present I handed it to him.
Say you were by the car and she didn't hand it to you.
I know someone who won a parking ticket this way, he described the meter maid to the judge.

I did buy a ticket but I didnít save it because I didnít think the ticket went through.

Thanks Iíll try that if I donít get a receipt.

That sucks? You don't have like 100s of muni meter receipts on your dash?  ;)

Heard a story from someone that someone he knows has tons of muni meter receipts on the dash so the meter maids never give him a ticket. Unverified.

Dont think its legal to keep expired receipts on the dash, saw it somewhere on their website when i was fishing around for a loophole for meter tickets and it not being visible

Back in the day when I drove a commercial van in the city, I was allowed to have an expired meter receipt (up to 4 hours after expiration). Even so, I got usually paid for at least 1 meter receipt every day and cleaned off my dash every few months.
If I was ticketed, I would just give the ticket with the meter receipt to the office and they would get rid of the ticket - they had a deal with the city.
I got many tickets for expired meter - which didn't really matter to me - but my point is that they will give expired meter tickets even if your dashboard is covered in them.

Never got a ticket for that.

Can traffic cop in nyc give a parking ticket from far away or they need to come up to your vehicle,  I believe they need registration expiration but can they automatically look that up from plate number?
