Citation #908902164

I recently received a parking citation in the mail for parking in a red zone on 03-10-14, at 09:17 P.M. that I would like to contest.

I was brought aware of the parking citation through the mail only per 40202 (D) VC. The parking attendant never put the parking citation on the Vehicle and never made contact with me at all advising me of a parking violation so I never knew about the issuing of the citation until I received a notice in the mail.

On 03-10-14 I was working as driver for the company Uber in the city of Santa Monica. Uber is a ridesharing company that allows people to request for a ride somewhere like a taxi. The drivers use their personal vehicles to pick up and transport the clients wherever they need to go. That evening I was using my personal vehicle (6AND311 Nissan Altima) in the performance of my duty for the Uber company.

On 03-10-14, at 9:14:39 P.M., I received a ride request from a client. I was a couple blocks away from the location of pick up (near 500 Santa Monica Bl). It is my common practice when I receive a ride request to pull to the side of the road and map out the route to get to the pick up location, which I did. Uber gives you a phone with a map gps system that gives you an icon of where the client is. You are supposed to drive to that exact location because that is where the client is supposed to be. So after I mapped out the route to the gps icon I drove to the location. I was flagged down by the client at the exact location the gps gave me. I arrived at the gps location of my client on 03-10-14, at just after 9:17 P.M. (the time it would take me to arrive at the location from when I first received it at 9:14:39 pm). I pulled to the side of the road where my client was standing exiting traffic and attempted to look for a safe place to stop my veh. There were cars around me and traffic was still moving so I was waiting for a safe opportunity to move my veh without causing a traffic collision. Before I was able to move my veh, the client entered the veh.

Once the client was already in the veh, I just waited for traffic to clear so I could remerge into traffic safely. As soon as traffic was clear I merged into traffic and began my trip with the passenger. My meter shows beginning the trip at 9:18 pm.

At no point did I ever park and leave me veh in a red zone. I only exited traffic looking for parking spot but had the client enter the veh before there was time allotted to find a place to park. The only people that were out of the veh waiting were the passengers I was picking up. I believe that the parking attendant misread the situation and believed that the passengers where the R/O of the veh but that was incorrect.

(Continued on the next page)

The time from me receiving the request to respond to 500 Santa Monica Bl to me leaving that address was 3 min and 21 seconds. Now when I received the request I was still a couple minutes away from 500 Santa Monica Bl. I didn’t arrive to the location until 9:17, and the meter began and I left the location by 9:18 at the most giving me 60 seconds at that location. This is still within a reasonable time to attempt to safely look for parking while waiting for traffic to accommodate. In this situation however I was not parking but only picking up a client in the performance of my duties.

Based on all of these facts I request that this Citation be dismissed.

I have attached all the supporting documents from the Uber website supporting the times and information of the job I was performing at the time.

Thank you for your time,

Brian Zeier

Windward Commons

...Windward Commons: East side VS. West side Moving on from high school to college can be difficult for any teenager. College and high school are different for many reasons. College students are not only away from their parents but they are also able to make their own decisions and able to do what they want to do when they want to do it. The decisions they make in college usually have a bigger impact on their lives than the decisions they made in high school. Although, all these things are difficult for any new college student; being able to fit in socially is the hardest part of all according to many freshman. My job was to explore the freshman dorm at Armstrong, Windward Commons. Windward is split into two different sides, east and west. The reason for the observations is to see what side most people rather stay and visit. I decided to do this because many freshman claim that they are more social in the dorm than outside of it. Windward Commons is a beautifully designed building that houses around a thousand people. The co-ed dorm is for freshman only. The fact that it is co-ed may turn the heads of many parents. According to Sarah, “My parents didn’t like the fact that my next door neighbors on both sides are males. They thought the eastside was for males while the west side was for females until move in day. They claimed that if they didn’t already pay for me to live on campus then I wouldn’t because they are totally against co-ed dorms” (Sarah). After my interview with......

...rental price for Manhattan rose by 6.7 percent. When it comes to sales, there is no longer a dramatic price difference between many Brooklyn neighborhoods and comparable areas of Manhattan. According to StreetEasy, the median asking price for a Brooklyn Heights apartment has risen 37.8 percent in the past five years to $792,500 while the median price in the West Village rose by only 4.34 percent during that same period, to $895,000. Additionally, Elliman’s data shows that in the first quarter, the median sales price for a Brooklyn apartment shot up 14 percent year-over-year, while the median price in Manhattan rose just 5.9 percent. And at least one popular Brooklyn neighborhood, Williamsburg, is now more expensive than the Lower East Side. The city’s current inventory shortage — available Manhattan listings fell by 34 percent year-over-year in the first quarter — has accelerated the shrinking price gap between the two boroughs, as would-be Manhattan buyers widen their search to include Brooklyn. That said, one area where there are still significant discounts...

I attended to this event on November 24, 2015, presented by the museum. El Museo’s exhibition draws from works in the museum’s own collection including copies of the Young Lords weekly newspaper,” Palante”. It also explores the legacy of the Young Lords and the relationship between art and activism. Images by photographer Hiram Maristany that feature the Young Lords’ Garbage Offensive, their takeover of the First Spanish Methodist Church of East Harlem (later renamed by the Young Lords as The People’s Church), their free morning breakfast program, the rerouting of a TB-testing truck and the funeral of Julio Roldán everything was highlighted in the exhibition. The Young Lords founded in Chicago in September 1968, the Young Lords Organization later developed a chapter in New York City in July 1969 when various groups came together in the interest of neighborhood improvement and Puerto Rican self-determination.

...1. Why does Sandel assert that "A 700 SAT score from a student who attended poor public schools in the South Bronx means more than the same score from for a graduate of an elite private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan"? a. Studies show that Blacks and Hispanics students as a whole score lower than whites students on standardized testing. Sandel mentions that for whatever reason there is a testing gap. To utilize standardized testing to predict academic success would require the interpretation of the students’ academic scores and to include the family’s social, culture and educational background. Sandel states that the A 700 score for a student who attended poor public schools in the South Bronx has more meaning than that of a student from an Upper East Side of Manhattan. 2. What is the essence of Richard Dworkin's argument in support of affirmative action university admissions policies? b. Dworkin’s idea of the supporting argument on affirmative action in relations to the universities admission policies is stated that possibly the right at stake should be based according to academic criteria alone. The fact of being good at football, or coming from Idaho, or having volunteered in a soup kitchen. Dworkin views the facts of grades, test scores, and other measures of academic promise land me in the top group of applicants, therefore I should be admitted. One should be considered based on academic merit alone. 3. What does it mean to sever......

...distributor located on New York’s lower east side. I was asked evaluate their system of internal controls because they are planning togo public in the near future. The president of the company wants to be aware of any new regulations required of his company if they go public, so he met with my colleague at a local restaurant. The president of the company explained the current system of internal controls to my colleague. She has since been promoted to a tax position so she has passed on the information below so I can generate recommendations for the partner at the accounting firm to share with the president of LJB Company.    Based on the information I was able to collect from the LJB company, in order to go public there are some internal control that needs to be in place (Control environment, Risk Assessment, Control Activities, Information and Communication monitoring).   These are done to prevent any fraudulent action and abuse and to be in compliance of the law.   I find that operations at LJB are going very well. Keeping checks locked in a separate location is great safety measure. This prevents access to LJB funds protecting them from potential theft.   Having pre-numbered checks in my opinion is a good safety measure as well. I would also recommend purchasing the indelible ink machine for the purpose of running checks. The use of the ink machine applies to physical control. Using the ink press will prevent signature forgery. The down side of my evaluation is that I......
