Web Site Helps Drivers Fight Parking Tickets

A new company is helping motorists in New York, Washington and San Francisco fight their parking tickets online. Parkingticket.com says customers beat tickets at least 70 percent of the time. San Francisco officials dispute that figure and say motorists don't need help from a private company to get justice in traffic court. NPR's Laura Sydell reports.
