NY Bar App- Parking Tickets

Postby sandwiches5000 » Tue Apr 28, 2015 12:41 pm

I can't remember if I paid all parking tickets I have ever gotten, but I know I paid all public tickets I've received because otherwise I'm sure there would have been legal action pending, hah. I may have gotten tickets at my gf's private undergrad and possibly another school I took classes at, but I honestly have no recollection as to whether I paid them all.

If I get my driving record from my state DMV, would any prior unpaid tickets that would show up on NY's search of my history for bar purposes be available?

I just want to make sure I am being 100 percent candid and that I'm not missing anything. Thanks! I don't know how strict they are and I have been driving for 10 years so, it's kind of hard to remember everything.

The bar application says: Do not report parking violations. Pg. 10, § F(27).

Hallelujah! I've racked up $2k worth of unpaid parking tickets since 2007 :shock: I'm the literal worst. And also why I no longer keep my car in NYC.

It says to report any unpaid parking tickets, though. That's my problem. I don't know if there are any out there or if I should safely assume that there aren't any.

You would be aware if there were any unpaid parking tickets as these are sent to collections, and collections agencies ruin your credit and harass you 24/7 to get paid. If you want to take it to the extreme, pull your credit report and see if you have any adverse collections marks on there. Honestly, if you haven't heard from them, I think you dont have any unpaid tickets aka you are fine.

You're right, I didn't see that. But like s1m4 said, if there were any, you'd be hearing from collections agencies by now.

Awesome, I guess I'm all good then. Obtained my credit report a few months ago and didn't see anything weird.
