What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York
So I parked last night, don't go back to the car til the next evening. I see a orange envelope... I was given a ticket for parking near a hydrant. The Ticket says I was 4 feet from it, so I went home and got my tape measure. After measuring I was roughly 9feet 6 inches from the hydrant. On top of that, the block had signs posted up all over the area that starting April 9th there will be no parking (one of those being pasted ON the hydrant).
Now the sign is gone (by wind or by someone ripping it) but there are a bunch around the area still. I took pictures of the signs, the hydrant, my car measured from the hydrant, as well as the car behind the hydrant parked even closer with no ticket. I also took a video so the measurements have continuity.
Does either the fact that is says 4 feet(which is not even close) or that there was a sign on the hydrant help me?
Also what does BL mean for color black or blue/
