Parking Ticket - Paying Online



So I got caught parking on the wrong side of a no parking sign (Cash Grab)



Whatever..

Can anyone explain to me why paying the parking ticket online actually adds a "$1.50" administration fee?

I would think paying directly would give me a $1.50 discount


Does it have something to do with administration on the credit cards side? But it can't be... if you pay using credit card in person there is no fee associated with it.

Yet another cash grab?

why dont you just fight it. Most likely you wont get a court date. (This will end soon, but for now seems to still work)

be happy you can even pay it online.

For the Town of Ajax I had to go into City Hall just to pay a damn parking ticket.

What's your time and gas worth driving to pay it in person. If you're not fighting it, spend the $1.50 and pay it online.

P.S. How is parking on the wrong side of a no parking sign a cash grab? You shouldn't have parked there. You're guilty.

Being guilty of parking there doesn't mean that it wasn't a cash grab.

Parking restrictions in general are cash grabs...unless they serve a greater purpose (i.e fire route/hydrant or parking on a busy street during rush hour)...

Bah.. whatever. Thats one point for the city.


I paid the fine... no point in fighting it. I always told myself I would fight a parking ticket considering they're backed up like crazy, but $40 isn't worth having it hang over my head for the next number of months (or years at this rate)
