Plate-Your plate number must be entered accurately. If not, you win. Ticket dismissed upon application and proof.
Name of the operator-A warrior is required to enter the name of the operator if she is seated behind the wheel when he issues the parking ticket. This rule is honored in the breach. Here’s how to secure the proper proof to win this defense
Expiration Date-The expiration date of your registration must be entered correctly if it appears on the windshield or license plate of your chariot. If not, your ticket will be dismissed upon application and proof (a tad more complicated than you would expect)
State-State of registration must be entered correctly
Plate Type-This is an easy element for NY State charioteer, but not so easy for out-of-towners. The plate type must be an exact match for vehicles registered in NY State. However, a warrior is permitted to enter “N/S” if your plate type is not displayed on the plate. For example, New Jersey doesn’t display plate type so technically, “N/S” will suffice…Arrgh!
Make-The Make of your vehicle must be described exactly as it appears on your NY State registration. Parking Ticket Warriors are permitted more leeway with out-of-state plates. The Make description only has to be, “reasonably accurate.” This is a difficult standard to overcome for out-of-state parkers
Body Type-It is much easier for NY State chariots to beat their ticket when it’s omitted, misdescribed or illegible than out-of-state chariots. The standard of proof for out-of-staters is“reasonably accurate.”Judges are reluctant to gift the benefit of the doubt to out-of-state drivers
Place of occurrence-This is a description of the location of your parking space. Always check it for accuracy because if it is misdescribed, you win upon presenting the proper proof
Rule-Warriors must enter the correct reference to Rule 4-08 or else your ticket is dismissable upon application. For example, in the above parking ticket, the warrior referenced the correct rule for a fire hydrant violation, R. 4-08(e)(2). Please note that the violation code number is not a required element
Date/Time: Easy to check, not so easy to win a dismissal. Make sure you check when you see 12A (that denotes midnight) and when your parking space is subject to the 5-minute grace period
