Before they can tow your car you have had to have been noticed several times at your address of record. You can call your bank and recreate the records and check abstracts. But for now all you can do is pay the fees to get your car back and then if you can find proof of prior payment bring them to the court where the tickets were issued for a refund.
Statute of limitations doesn’t apply because they issued the ticket and obtained a judgment back then. Now they are simply enforcing the judgment. You may want to move to vacate the judgment but its a long shot.
Simply put, No. They stay until they are paid or lifted or resolved.
I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.
A ticket was already issued. If you failed to answer the ticket there was a default judgment answered against you.
