Parking Violation in Manhattan

So today I went into Manhattan with my girl, and ended up parking in a "commercial parking zone" , ate up a 115 dollar ticket.

I've had parking tickets before in philly and never got around to pay them haha. I live in PA, do you think its a bad idea to ignore it, or is it a must for me to pay the parking ticket.

Let me know, thanks guys

Pay it. The NY Times had an article last week that NYC will decrease the amount of the fine if you make a little noise. I seem to remember it was about $30 savings. Worth a call.

contest it online and they'll knock off 40 or so bucks. any excuse will do, just say there were no signs or something, they'll immediately come back with a reduced fine.

dont ignore it, with the CTB (counter terrorism bureau) plate scanners ( NYPD cruisers with plate recognition scanners on their trunks) roaming around, its likely they'll stop you and impound your car and/or arrest you if you let it go for a while and happen to be driving in the city. plus if they send it to collections your credit rating will be screwed.

^^ agree with orient330iNYC. there was an article in the NYTimes recently about how they'll basically discount any NYC parking ticket you contest these days. that said, even if they don't, just pay the $115. not worth the stress or potentially dispropotionate consequences if you don't.

speaking from experience in NY, this is what happens.

-you dont pay, they tack on an additional ~$50 late fee.
-30 days pass
-(assuming you still don't pay) a warrant will be issued for your arrest, and your drivers license will be suspended in NY state. If you get into an accident or get stopped and have your license run for any reason in NY you will be arrested, and spend 24 hours in central booking before you appear before a judge and are charged with "VTL 511 - driving with a suspended license" - a misdemeanor in NY State. You will then spend more money with a lawyer pleading it down to a non-criminal offense, as well as the original ticket + penalties.

moral of the story -- just pay the ticket if you have any intention of EVER returning to NY in your LIFETIME.
