I parked in a handicapped parking one night by accident. This is my first such offence. I just want to know what I need to be prepared for when I appear in court.

Lawyer's Assistant: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you know who owns the lot?

It is in Blackwood New Jersey 08012. The lot is owned by lakeveiw apartments and Townhomes. The only way to know that its a Handicapped parking is a small sign on the gat in front of the apartment which I did not see at night.

Yes

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Thats about it

The penalty for a first offense is $250. It is not a defense that you made a mistake. It is a defense of there was no signage or it was obscured.

In that case, bring photos showing the absence of a visible sign in the space or that the sign was obscured and the violation may be dismissed.

Otherwise, be prepared to pay a $250 fine.
