from my expieriences, small fines like that usually arent that big of a deal(unless you are making it one) like a parking ticket, if you are trying to dispute it, you just go to court, and ive seen this happen, the judge just asks(well atleast in this case), do you know that you were parked illegally, you say yes, he says, ok dont do it again, and lets you go, but then again it all depends on which way you take it

I also got a $10 ticket the other day for "Parking Against Traffic Direction".... IN A NEIGHBORHOOD.
more than likely this is your preliminary to plea your case. I'ld file the case against the towing company and show the court clerk your pics & receipts for your radiator problems & blame the towing company. Incidentally, most of these parking tickets are called in by tow companys so they get the tow business. Good luck.
You're kidding, right?? That violations schedule is chump change compared to my town. I got a double ticket 2wks ago: expired meter = $29 and Street cleaning = $42. I just ran in to someone's house and back out- under a minute; I don't know where these bastards came from.
Don't know if it's much different than anywhere else, but for parking violations, there is no jury, therefore no trial. The judge just hears your case, and makes his/her decision right there on the spot. Most judges will accept any type of electronic media for supporting evidence, even a pic on your camera phone. Bring anything that you think might help your case. Even if you were in fact parked too close to a driveway, the judge may still dismiss the ticket . . . most of them are aware of the parking problems in the city they preside in, and know how hard it is to find a spot in certain areas. They do take that into account when they hear your case. Just be straightforward about it. Good luck man!
I got one for parking too close to a crosswalk, it was a $15 fine but in PA that means it was $55. I went to court to fight it and the judge actually said "You wouldn't have gotten a ticket if you weren't wrong" He found me guilty and knocked $10 off for my trouble. It's a scam. Expect to be found guilty, and expect to have to appeal.
