New York may characteristically be a city of straphangers, but there are still millions of city residents who keep cars. If you’re one of many who have taken on the (oftentimes regrettable) responsibility of car ownership, you know that the biggest challenge faced on the streets is the task of parking. Every year the city issues around 10 million parking tickets with fines running from $65 all the way up to $300. While no driver is ever shy about sharing their rage when being met with one of the pesky orange rectangles on their windshield, most will pay those violations no questions asked. And that’s a problem, according to lawyer Larry Berezin, who says a very large percentage of NYC tickets are scam tickets.
Larry is the CEO and founder of New York Parking Ticket, a consulting company with a website that provides comprehensive, easy to understand, FREE advice on how regular folks can beat the racket that is NYC parking. “There are ways to fight these tickets, but you need to be armed with the right information,” Larry says.
We recently spoke to Larry to find out more about what he does and to get some expert advice on how to beat that ticket currently hanging on your fridge.
