take on that meter maid. there's a lot more to this, and i'd love to help -
but today i learned something excited while contesting at nyc parking ticket.
first this is not just your usual expired meter ticket. i already paid that one (incurred the same day of awesomeness) and i noticed that the meter maid had given me a chance by noting the 1st observed time and a 2nd observation...all in all a 10 minute grace period which deserves respect.
nooooo...this is about a "no-standing'" ticket where the "officer" scanned my plate from a block away. now, is that even possible? while i felt like a sucker standing there while she filled out the rest of the ticket (with visions of peeling away from the curb), i now feel empowered after learning that you are allowed to stop in a no-standing zone if you are expeditiously loading. now where was my fair chance when i accidentally parked in the zone before realizing that i had found the traffic department's golden ticket spot?
