Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 2, ARTICLE 2-B
§ 241-b. Muni-meter receipts; affirmative defense. In any prosecution
or proceeding alleging a muni-meter parking violation, it shall be an
affirmative defense to such violation, with the burden of proof on the
person who received the summons, that he or she did in fact purchase a
muni-meter ticket prior to or up to five minutes thereafter from the
issuance of the summons and that the receipt is valid for use at the
time and location where such summons was issued. Such defense shall be
deemed established if such person produces the actual muni-meter receipt
or a copy thereof at such prosecution or proceeding. For the purposes of
this section, "muni-meter" shall mean an electronic parking meter that
dispenses timed receipts showing the amount of parking time purchased.
