Don't know if AD wants me giving up the trade secret but here it goes. With a vespa the Police don't know how to find the vin, so most of the time they just remove the license plates and the cops bypass instead of having to try and find the vin number. With motorcycles most cops know where to look for the vin so if you take your plate off they will still write you for the vin so it doesn't always work. Plus the cops know it is a shop and are leinent about it with them.quote:
Quick intro - Black Triumph Bonneville w/ loud pipes and hangs out with Timothy from Upstate NYC. We both race with USCRA. Now for the question.
This is totally off topic on shit, but I park on the corner of Howard street for about 1-2 hrs - 4 times a week (Boxing gym). I see your store all the time, just havent stopped by yet. I got slammed with a tik for parking on the sidewalk for $115 bucks. I see you guys always have your scoots out there all the time, do you get shit for it?
I'm planning on saying, " Yo Honor, I was at the gym and parked on the street - but some turd came and picked my bike up and placed it on the sidewalk to get my parking space"?
Do you think it'll work?
Thanks, I'll pass by tomrrow if I dont hear from you.
Your argument sounds plausable to me except that you really can't fight the city. The city and suffolk are really difficult to get tickets thrown out (nassau is easy because they will actually bargain with you). You can make the argument to the judge and ad on that you are willing to work out an agreement for a lesser amount and that might get you somewhere but it is doubtful.
eitherway good luck.
BTW I know some great places for parking in mid town, if you e-mail me I'll fill you in.
