What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NY
Hi everyone. Thanks to all in advance for helping me with my parking ticket. I was late for a rehearsal and parked on the corner of a street. My rear bumper was barely in front of a pedestrian ramp. I almost tapped the car in front of me to squeeze in. I thought "no prob". When I went back to my car, lo and behold there was that horrid orange envelope. $165!!!!! holy crap. So anyway I blew off some steam and began the process of figuring out how to fight this thing.
I came across cases that were dismissed because of defective tickets. I noticed on my ticket that the traffic cop got the make of my car wrong and the body type. The make he wrote down is Mitsu and the body type 2door sedan. The color is wrong too but I know that won't pass. The make of my car is Toyota and it's a 2 door hatchback. It's silver.
I have two questions.
1. Does this count as a defective ticket? I read a pdf from '99 saying that it would be so.
(I also have a few other things that I would challenge but I thought I should start with the obvious.)
2. When I send the ticket in pleading not guilty how do I go about proving that the ticket is defective? Do I do it on the day of my hearing or do I make a copy of my registration and mail it in?
Thank you all for your help!
