    Default New Jersey Handicapped Parking Ticket - No Sign

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: New Jersey

    Where can I find out the rules for handicap spot signage?
    I inadvertantly parked in a handicap spot that had blue lines and handicap marking painted in the ground (which I honestly did not notice) but had absolutely no handicap sign.

    When I pulled in, I parked between two cars so there must have been someone else illegally parked over top of the blue crossed lines on the left.
    That's part of the reason I didn't notice it was a handicap spot.

    Do I have any chance of fighting this in court?

    It looks like the New Jersey Administrative Code, Sec. 5:23-7.10(a)(3), requires a sign.

    Also,
    Quote Quoting NJSA 39:4-8.1. Approval of handicapped parking spaces, signs.
    1. Any municipality, which pursuant to the provisions of R.S.39:4-8, R.S.39:4-197, section 1 of P.L.1977, c.202 (C.39:4-197.5) or section 1 of P.L.1977, c.309 (C.39:4-197.6) designates restricted parking spaces for use by handicapped persons, may, in lieu of having the Department of Transportation inspect those parking spaces and any signs erected in association therewith, designate the municipal engineer to determine whether or not those parking spaces and signs conform to the current standards prescribed by the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways, adopted by the Commissioner of Transportation, and any other Department of Transportation rules and regulations governing such parking spaces and signs. Any such parking spaces and signs shall be deemed approved and operational, and in need of no additional inspection by the Department of Transportation, when the municipal engineer, under his seal as a licensed professional engineer, shall certify to the commissioner that the parking spaces and signs:

    a. have been approved by him after investigation; and

    b. conform to the current standards prescribed by the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways, as adopted by the commissioner, and any other Department of Transportation rules and regulations governing such parking spaces and signs.
    The municipal engineer shall submit to the commissioner, together with his certification, detailed information as to the location and number of parking spaces, a certified copy of the ordinance, resolution or regulation designating the restricted parking spaces, and such other information as the commissioner shall deem necessary.
