If you happen to be a car-owning New Yorker who gets the occasional parking ticket, then you also know “the boot” is more than just an Oktoberfest chugging challenge.
Thankfully, there’s a new app on the market that just might clear out some of those pesky parking tickets you’ve stashed away in your glovebox.
Meet Ticket Wiper.
Founded by Brooklyn-based veteran parking ticket guru David Obstfeld, Ticket Wiper makes it easy to fight NYC parking tickets right from your phone.
Here’s how it works. If you find that bright orange pamphlet of shame on your windshield, pop open Ticket Wiper on your phone and it’ll walk you through how to submit your ticket. Then, Team Ticket Wiper gets all up in that ticket’s business to find its weaknesses and then gloriously disputes it before the Parking Violations Bureau on your behalf.
The best part? You only pay half of the amount NYC would have otherwise taken if Ticket Wiper gets the ticket dismissed. Otherwise, it costs you absolutely nothing/nada/niente/bupkis. Sweet deal, right?
Some other nifty perks include: pay your guilty tickets all in one shot, get an email if a new ticket shows up for your license plate, and even save by referring your friends.
Now, if you’re convinced that the $545 MILLION in parking fines NYC collected last year alone probably went to good things, then please disregard.
Otherwise, check out Ticket Wiper today on the App Store or Play Store and treat yourself with coupon code WIPE5 to save $5 on your first dismissed ticket!
