What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York
Before I ask for help I'd just like you to keep in mind that I have no driving experience what so ever (I'm helping my parents who do not speak English well, I'm 14) so bear with me.
OK, so my parents got a ticket for parking in a spot with, and apparently for violating "No Std Com Mtr Zone DAYS/HRS: EXCEPT Su/ 8a-6p". The complaints were: "no visable summon (that's how it was spelled)/ no permit". The ticket was for $115 dollars and my parents had only left for ten minutes. Before they left they paid the meter for a full hour and had placed the receipt on top of the dashboard (driver's side, you could see it at the bottom corner). They showed me the sign and I was confused as heck. It said something like pay at muni-meter, which is why my parents thought it was OK to park there (there were also other people parking there, and around 3/4s of the sidewalk got a ticket for it).
Would they be able to dispute this case and win? My parents don't really want to settle for a $25 dollar reduction.
Thanks for your help
