    Is it really possible to get a ticket in NYC? I With the exception of the cops actin up in the market about idling from time to time....and the quarterly blitz on Canal St at the base of the bridge where they hand out so called 53' violations---which are fixed with one letter with your BOL attached to the court.......
    Not trying to be a smart ###---Been runnin up there since the early 70's and honestly I've never seen it......and even with all the nonsence I've pulled only ever been stopped twice---but nothing written

    Is it true they won't let you plea bargain?

    I just got my court notice in the mail.
    I still haven't gotten a letter of representation or entry of appearance from an attorney.

    It is possible.

    God only knows why I did not get a armful of tickets somedays.

    And if I did those would be paid and we move on.

    The closest I can get to tickets and NYC is either Connecticut or Jersey in particular. Possibly plead Poverty by the time I hit the GWB. No money left to pay anything.

    Keep it up, and you’ll be retired by the time you go to court.

    Well, I see now why you got a ticket. Commercial vehicle on parkway.

    That's about the only thing you can do to get a ticket in NYC without getting their attention by destroying something first.

    He’s lucky he didn’t stay too long and hit a bridge.

    If he had hit a bridge, that list of citations would have been 12 pages long.
