Want to Beat a Parking Ticket? You Might Not Want to Try This …

In the six months since I started this blog, I have never discussed how to beat a parking ticket (although I did write about a Constitutional issue related to parking enforcement).  The main reason for this is that people rarely choose to contest them.  Do I really want to spend hours researching/finding … Continue reading Want to Beat a Parking Ticket?

Written by Gregory Monte. When I started this blog back in April of 2019, I had no idea how it would fare.  There were times when I started to doubt that there was anyone out there who really cared to spend time trying to fight a traffic ticket.  Well, six months into this project, Google suggests … Continue reading Stop Sign Ticket Google Search Results: This Blog Comes Out Near the Top!
