    Post NYC- what makes a ticket "defective"?

    NYC - New York

    I just got a parking ticket (No parking sign).
    I've searched nyc dept of finance's site and tried to search this forum for a link to see what kind of missing information is a ground for dismissal.
    A link posted on this forum back in 2003-2004 is no longer valid.

    My ticket is for "No standing" sign. However, my ticket is missing 'State of registration'. I would like to know if missing state info makes my ticket "defective"?

    also, if you point me to url that description of what makes a ticket "defective" in nyc

    thanks in advance

    A defective ticket would have incorrect information that prevents you from presenting a valid defense to the citation or is blatantly incorrect in such a way that it could be easily defeated. There is no website that has a specific definition of a defective ticket, 2 judges in the same courthouse could use different definitions. The missing info for state of registration could hardly make a ticket defective, especially if the vehicle is licensed in the state in which the ticket was issued.
    If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.

    No private messages, I do not reply to them.

    anyone has official info?

    I did more digging because it feels to me that state of registration should be a valid reason for dismissal,
    here is what i found.

    Fine, go to court and argue that the ticket is not valid and see what happens.

    That website is not too useful. Some parts are good, others, 100% incorrect (i.e. never contest by mail - always go in person).

    Anyway, the information you're looking for is in this thread:

    State of registration is not an automatic dismissal, but it's worth a shot.

    Thumbs up It worked - ticket was dismissed.

    I decided to go and try to argue my case.
    As soon as a clerk looked at my ticket, he dismissed it based on missing state of registration.
    Hope this info helps anyone who has similar defective tickets.
