I drive a mini-van as well. I took my back seats out to haul a piece of furniture and received the ticket for a personal vehicle NOT having a backseat. Is this a joke? They make these vans to have their seats removed.

You could try to fight this parking ticket. I assume that the mounts are still there for the back seats. Take a picture of these and explain that you were only transporting a piece of furniture and that you were not parking as a commercial vehicle. If you weren't parked in an area designated for commercial vehicles, they should dismiss or at least reduce the parking ticket. If you do this by mail, make copies of everything you send and send it certified so you can prove the date it was mailed (make sure you mail it on time).
