Yes you can. A judge may ask you why you did not move your car after receiving the first ticket.
Sure you can. Why didn't you move the car after the first ticket?

I think the first question is: which ticket was on your windshield? Was it the first (in time) or the second (in time)?
The answer might not matter. PC 654 prevents being punished twice for the same act. Assuming this applies to infractions (an open question) the answer is likely ‘no’. The act here is parking your car in a prohibited place at a prohibited time. Sounds like you only did that once. Taking the other answers to their logical extension could produce a ticket every second for the entire period. I don’t think this is the intent of the statute that allows a fine for the parking at issue in the first place.
You should consider going to court on these tickets on the same day and asserting the defense of double jeopardy after you pay the first (in time) ticket.
