    I thought of that Ace but I think there's a good chance that no one has the plate # that was mistakenly input for my car. Besides, as some other posts have stated, it doesn't sound like a big deal to get it taken care of. My ticket is overdue already so I'm not going to send anything in.........HEY NYC GOVERNMENT DOUCHEBAGS, COME AND GET ME YOU DIRTY FILTHY BUREAUCRAT COCKSUCKERS!!! MY NAME IS PAUL BUNYON AND MY PLATE NUMBER IS FUCK YOU!!.......uummmmm Thank You, just had to vent for a minute guys. Too many tickets over the years...... A few years ago I got a parking ticket in the mail out of the blue from Philly but I hadn't been there in ages. It turned out that they wrote the wrong plate # on the ticket and it just so happened it was my number by mistake. Took me 10 minutes on the phone to take care of it. So I don't think its a big deal for anyone.

    Actually, bunyon works pretty hard. Owning your own business and being a HS coach on the side can have it's privledges (except when you got a dead line in 4 wks and over half a million waiting on it...) ;) .

    Yeah, but there is a vehicle description on NYC tickets. She definitely should get that throw out. If your plate # is not on the site, you win, bunyon. They don't have you. And if they do, I'll give you the $10 towards the late fee.

    No fucking way this idiot got $400 in fines on a $65 ticket and she didn't know about it. It would take more than a year (prob more than 2 yrs) at the scale the city uses on late fees that she'd have been informed when she went to register her car in that period of time. She should have made it her business to folow up on her injustice. As staff already said, it very easy to prove a wrong ticket. NYC govt workers are bad but the system not that inept.

    Well she was stupid cause the city always sends you a decision or receipt.


    I've told friends that the single reason that pushed me over the edge to move out of NY was an inspection ticket I got at 12:04 am on the day my inspection expired. I find it hard to believe the traffic agent just happened upon my car at that time. He had either scoped it out for days and had me tagged for a ticket, or he was there earlier in the night and circled back after midnight so he could issue the ticket... which was one of those computer printed tickets. The fact it seems they now have an out to get you attitude instead of a happenstance.... was all I needed to make my move.

    I don't know the specifics...it was one of those problem solver things on Fox and that obnoxious guy was chasing down people in the traffic violation department. The person that received the ticket said she disputed it as soon as she received the first letter and when she didn't hear back from the violations court she figured it was taken care of. In the same episode they did bring up instances of traffic cops just making up tickets and submitting them for the purpose of meeting quotas.

    Don't these fucking cops have anything better to do then giving tickers to innocent parked cars ? This is an absolutely victimless crime. They should spend their time busting streetwalkers, escorts and massage places.

    If you get a ticket meant for someone else it's the easiest thing to fix. You just attach copy of your registration showing you own a White 1981 Toyota Carolla instead of the Black 2006 Mercedes S500 which the ticket is written for. It's one of the reasons they have to describe the car on the ticket as well as write the plate number.

    That sounds completely wrong or exaggerated. For one.. the city has a $120 scofflaw limit so that it takes at least two tickets (unpaid) before you become a scofflaw and accumulate those type of fines and or the sheriff tows your car. And if she did have a $65 ticket floating around with her plate number she should have received notices to the registered address long before it accumulated $400 in late fees and fines.

    In that case mail it in plead and not guilty along with a note stating they have the wrong plate number and see what happens. You can always apeal that decision. Usually they copy your reg from the sticker on your windshield(assuming its NYS) and write that on the ticket so they always have TWO points of refrence to your car. This happens automatically with the new scan bar system the meter maids carry. Yours sounds like NYPD hit you. They have a quota to write tickets and often don't care if they get it right or not. Friends of mine on the NYPD tell me they intentially make mistakes sometimes if the ticket requires a courts apperance (not parking tix). cause they hate going to court.

    If the ticket has any errors it will be tossed, but you need to take a day off and fight it. I got a ticket once and my last name was spelled wrong. The case was dropped and the judge started to yell at the cop right there on the spot. It was great.

    I'm pretty sure sure there are parking violation adjudication centers in each borough which have late hours one day a week.The judge will toss the ticket if what you say is true.I've been through it.It's a walk-in take a number,get on line deal and the wait can be over an hour.Just make sure you are parked legally and have fed the meter enough.I nearly got another ticket going to get the first one dismissed.Since you'll already be in the city you can even use the money you saved a little later for an in-car blow job.
