I'm happy to answer your question.
Please give me a second to review your question.
I understand your issue.
The problem is that you were not parked in a parking space.
A transfer zone is the space between handicap parking spaces that allows a handicap person to transfer their wheelchair/scooter, etc, into their car.
That is why you got the ticket.
Even though I was getting a scooter out of my car?
Were you parked in a parking spot, or were you in the spot with the blue diagnol lines?
I was actually 1/2 in handicap spot & 1/2 in transfer zone
This is why you got the ticket.
Your car has to be completely in the handicap parking spot and not intruding into the transfer zone.
However, If I were you, I'd still fight the ticket.
ok so I should still attend the conferance hearing
Yes. Obviously you were confused by the parking zone markings, which is the defense you should use.
You were attempting to park in a handicapped parking space which was not clearly marked
And that is why you shouldn't get the parking ticket.
ok thank you
