Recently in front of my apartment building , i was setting up my GPS in the car and a parking car stopped behind me.
There was a no parking board from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m and i was there at 7:43 a.m . The parking agent stopped for around 2 mins behind my car and then came and asked me to move my car from the no parking area. I requested to give me 2 mins to setup an address in GPS and i moved in 2 mins. Nevertheless, i got a parking ticket in mail after 2 weeks.
In the explanations section of the ticket, i wrote my defense that i was in the no parking area for less then 5 mins, in the car and setting up the GPS and moved my car in 2 mins after being told, but the explanation was not accepted and i have until 15th August to pay or wait for the trial letter.
What do you guys think, pay the $62 fine or go to court and explain my defense??Can the ticket be dismissed on the fact that i was in the prohibited parking area for less than 5 mins setting up my GPS and moved after being told .
