Dispute Parking Tickets in NYC – Reduce it Easy

6 Comments

I just want to let everyone know how EASY it is for getting parking tickets reduced in NYC. NEVER agree to paying the entire fine. It is a JOKE how easy it is to do this. I am upset I never did this before.

All you have to do is go to the main page
http://nycserv.nyc.gov/NYCServWeb/NYCSERVMain

go to the bottom where it says Request Hearing – and put in your ticket number.
I was initially worried I would get stuck in going to the courthouse, but nope – this is total automation – they just put you to another screen with a reduced amount.

Now, is this justice? Not really. All it is doing is fining people more if they do not know about this option. Another idiot tax. Sure I am happy to save, but this practice is still not honest.

How much?
$115 tickets become $90
$65 tickets become $43
$60 tickets become$40
$45 tickets become $32
$35 tickets become $26

It’s a shame because it makes it a gamble to plead not guilty. If you argue the case in person, and are found guilty, you have to pay the entire fine plus penalties. There they go again, caging the tiger.

$2 Convenience Charge???? NYC Parking Ticket

THEY CHARGE ME A 2 DOLLAR CONVENIENCE CHARGE??? For paying online with my credit card??? alkrjawerjaiopjfajiofjioafjioajiofojiqoifoat!!$%!5jqr[aiwerjiq

What the? Come on! Another way the government is stretching their penalties. Is there ever a way this will stop?? 90 percent of companies, and even government agencies, give you a Discount if you pay online – it eliminates paper work, and also man-hours. It’s a fadofiajfid electronic Payment!

They just look for another way to milk more money out of you. This is unbelievable!

I got my ticket when I parked in Astoria, Steinway street. I couldnt stand it there. So many police buzzing around looking for people not paying the meter. It is such a waste of a workforce. Can’t they do something constructive?? Wouldn’t the same job be done if they just swept the streets every night and ticketed then???? How about they fight crime instead? How about they do something useful for the community. When is the last time you heard someone complain that a person was parked too long in their spot? This is not an urgent issue, and nothing can be done to convince them this. As long as they keep getting revenue, they don’t see it as a problem. They see it as a way to make money. Of course. BUT, this isnt the CCC, there is plenty of work to be done. Give them a BROOM instead of a Ticket Board.

2 DOLLAR CONVENIENCE CHARGE??? That is ludicrous. How can anyone defend this?

Here’s a tip, go down to the office anytime between 830 and 430 – but make it 9-4 just to be safe – you know there’s going to be some red tape to stop you if you cut it close. You can probably get it reduced if you ask. But who is going to take off from work to save 35 dollars???

Cops start under 30k a year in NYC. Many of them don’t have the capacity to apply the law. Teachers keep getting raises because they guilt trip everyone saying “don’t you want the best for your kids??” Cops in Long Island make 100k. To do very little. To bring the crime from 1 percent to Zero. I’m trying to say there is a big disparity in this. Cops are very important, but we have to use them in such a way. We have to appreciate them, and not put up with the incompetence that we are destined to get when we pay them 26k a year. Get a grip.

and keep exposing bad cops:

just carry a camera with you and you are bound to find hypocrisy.
