A confused couple keeps getting ticketed even though they don’t own a car.

  • A Manhattan couple keeps getting tickets for a car they don’t have.
  • It’s believed someone is using their old plates and getting parking tickets.
  • The couple has sent in the receipts of their returned plates, but it took a while for police to dismiss their ticket.

Manhattan couple Bob and Sandi Durell keep receiving parking tickets. The only problem is they don’t own a car. It all started when they received a notice from the Department of Finance Parking Violations Bureau of $100 for two unpaid tickets. One for an expired muni meter and the other for having a license plate number that didn’t match the registration sticker.

“I don’t have a car,” Sandi says. “Why am I getting these tickets?” The couple used to have a car in 2013 and even turned in the license plates at the DMV. They sent in their receipts for the plates along with the car’s bill of sale as proof they’re not guilty, but were stunned with the Parking Bureau’s decision. They were found not guilty of the muni meter violation, but guilty of the license plate charge.

The DMV typically destroys license plates turned into its offices at a recycler in upstate New York, but in some cases plates may end up on other vehicles. “Somebody is doing something illegal," Sandi speculates.

They submitted their paperwork again and the Appeals Boar dismissed the summons. The only issue they face now, is the possibility of it happening again. “Those plates are still out there," Bob says. "And it could happen again and again and again.”
