Is there such a thing as parking ticket insurance?

Is parking ticket insurance a real thing? I live in New Jersey and get several parking tickets a year. I try not to, but there is never anywhere to park! You can only park at this spot on a particular day and then you can't park there other days... New Jersey needs more parking. These tickets cost me about $500 per year. Is there a way around this?

Answer
Parking in New Jersey is notoriously expensive and parking tickets only make it more so. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as parking ticket insurance.
Some online resources will update New Jersey residents daily with reminders of what side of the road to park on and when things like snow plowing and street sweeping will occur. Maybe that will help!
New Jersey has nine different types of parking tickets that, if not paid, could add up to $1,000 fee with a possible license suspension. The good news is that as long as you keep paying your parking tickets promptly, they will not impact the rate of your car insurance.
In addition to expensive parking tickets, New Jersey also has higher car insurance rates than other states. If you want help saving money on car insurance, try the Jerry app. Jerry compares rates from the nation’s top providers and delivers the best deals to your phone for free.
