I bought a great car for a steal the end of December. It's been a bit of a project for me, getting her back up to par, but it's been worth it. It sits parked outside my apartment in the complex parking lot. It is registered, insured and was inspected up till the end of February.
It was a bit of a battle troubleshooting the issues and I literally just got it back from the shop on Friday last week, but the 02 monitors weren't ready yet. Sunday the light came back and it was throwing me a catalytic code. Took it back in Monday and it was confirmed that it needed new cats from the engine running rich for however long it had. I shopped around and finally ordered the cats and found the right installer. I'm waiting for them to come in and I got a parking ticket for being un-inspected outside my home at 5:30 this morning.
They had nothing better to do I'm sure. Anyway, it's ludicrous, I don't have a garage and I cant exactly pull it inside. Someone told me to place the ticket back on my window every night till the cats come in and I am able to clear the monitors and have it inspected. They claim you can not be ticketed twice for the same offense. Is there any truth to this?
It sounds like you have been cited for violating VTL 306 due having an uninspected car parked on a public road. Anticipate getting ticketed again if you continue to leave it parked on a public road even if you leave a previously issued ticket on the front windshield especially if there is a time limit for how long you can remain parked on that road.

Depends on the local code. You can probably be ticketed for the same offense but not twice say within 24 or 48 hours.
