    Default Citation Dismissal for "Facing Against the Flow of Traffic" with Incorrect Info

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Indiana

    The road involved runs N/S and is inside an apt. complex (which I'm told is city property but they have never heard of a parking ticket issued) I was parked facing North in the "Southbound" lane. (quotes because the road isn't wide enough to really be north/south and the north side is lined with perpendicular parking spaces that often have cars sticking out into the lane) The Citation says I was parked facing South in the Northbound lane, theres not even a curb on that side. I realize it's a small mistake but I can honestly go plead not guilty to what is written, should I? It's only $20, I'm more annoyed an officer was bored enough to write a ticket inside our edition. (or tickets if the other cars facing north got them too)

    Also, if it makes a difference, there has been no traffic patrol in the 4 years I've lived here and cars are pretty commonly parked facing both directions, ususally for ease of leaving in a certain direction since the road is narrow anyway.

    Thanks a ton.

    If the road is a city street, the citation is likely valid. Most cities have laws against parking against the flow. They haven't written a ticket here in years, is not a valid defense.

    Take your chance on getting the ticket dismissed, if it isn't dismissed, the court will tack on court fees to the fine.
