Legal Question

Asked on: 9/09/13, 7:28 am

Hi, I was issued "no parking zone" ticket 39:4-138g this morning in the drop only area in front of school. This was second day of school and my child has autism so I had to get out of the car to help him with the seat belt and also walked him in front of the door where his aide and teacher waited for him. I had a brief conversation with teacher making sure he was OK and when I returned to my car the policeman was there to issue me a ticket. I was gone maybe 1 or 2 minutes. My son has behavioral issues and everything new may cause a meltdown, and this ritual where he is dropped in front of school where his aide waits for him it's all new. Also, last year when he was in a pre-school and arrived to school 10 minutes later so there was no more traffic I parked my car in the drop off area every single day and no ticked was ever issued to me, the police car was there on many occasions and I even went inside the building to drop my son off into his classroom. Should I pay a ticket or go to court? Thank you.
