I parked downtown Jersey City in a handicap space and when I came back I received a ticket. I have a handicap permit hanging. The ticket says under parking offense it says "improper parking/no permit #" Statue Order is 39:4-135. I've looked the numbers up and this doesn't even make sense. I tried looking this ticket up in the website but it's not showing up. Is this worth going to the court and fighting it? I think it's a mistake.
It means you didn't park in a spot facing the proper way. For example, if you parked in angle parking and backed in so you'd be pointing the wrong way on the way out, or didn't park on the proper side of the street or were pointed in a direction opposite traffic.
