Bike Lanes Coming to 4th Ave Sunset Park

No comments

Construction for a new bike lane in Sunset Park is scheduled to start this Spring. Largely in response to a massive increase in the number of people in Brooklyn who use bikes to commute to work, the Department of Transportation is working to make the roads safer for cyclists. While we are happy to share the road and support making our city a safer place for everyone, the downside is that, according to Bklyner, 4th Ave will lose approximately 225 parking spots between 8th st and 64th st. And we all know what less parking spaces means. Also, changing the roads to include bike lanes will require some construction, which in the short term will make parking in Sunset Park even more difficult. Less parking means a better chance you end up with a parking ticket and unnecessary headache. And that’s where we come in.

So if you do end up with a pesky ticket, let us help. Just download the app below and scan for your ticket in the NYC Database. Then we will fight the ticket for you, and if we win, you only pay 50% of the ticket. Otherwise you don’t pay us a dime. Try it out today!

Hidden Fire Hydrant Sets Parking Ticket Trap

No comments

Sometimes it feels like the NYC Traffic Authorities are really just out to get us. You park in a spot that looks totally fine, go run some errands, and then come back to find a ticket on your car. “For what?” you may ask. And then you see it. Behind the fence next to the road, hidden within some overgrown weeds, is a fire hydrant. Who would possibly notice such a thing? This is the question many residents of Windsor Terrace are asking according to CBS New York. And rightly so. This particular hydrant is apparently notorious in the neighborhood for being a ticket trap for unsuspecting drivers. However, local residents have taken the issue to their City Councilman, Brad Landers, and he has registered the complaints with the Department of Transportation. They’ve promised to move a No Standing sign so that it covers the spots directly in front of the hydrant. And while posting signs prohibiting parking in front of fire hydrants isn’t standard in NYC, I think it’s pretty clear to everyone that this case is an exception. So just remember, it’s always worth taking a quick look around when you park, even if it looks like a perfect spot. Some things are just too good to be true.

Parking: It’s Not Worth Dying Over

No comments

Road rage. A terrifying phenomenon that plagues our country. And apparently it doesn’t just happen in traffic or driving on a freeway. This horrible story of road rage took place in Queens over a parking space. While the details of what exactly sparked the incident are a bit spotty, the end results are not. According to the New York Daily News, the suspect (now in custody) was arguing with two other men over a parking spot, when he allegedly took out a knife and stabbed the two men in the chest. He then jumped into his car and drove onto the sidewalk, striking six people, before driving off. One of the men he stabbed died in the incident. Five other people were injured but appear to be in stable condition. This truly senseless act is incredibly sad and bewildering. Parking in New York can be frustrating, but it certainly is not worth killing someone over.

We here at Ticket Wiper really do understand how frustrating parking can get and that’s why we are here to help. Next time you feel overwhelmed just trying to find a spot, or think you found the perfect spot and end up with a ticket, just take a deep breath and remember that there is an easier way. By using the Ticket Wiper app, you can seriously cut down on the frustrations of finding parking in NYC. So download the app below and scan for your ticket in the NYC Database. Then we will fight the ticket for you, and if we win, you only pay 50% of the ticket. Otherwise you don’t pay us a dime. Try it out today!
