Damn... another big $$ parking ticket.. what should I do?



Damn... another big $$ parking ticket.. what should I do?

hi guys..

Today I parked my car right in front of the condo for 3 minutes and I got a ticket (park in a fire route). (Yonge and Finch area)

It was pretty huge road and I didn't really see the fire route sign..

$250...

what should I do?? I am not gonna just donate my bloody $250..

I am going to take this to the court but I don't really have an evidence..

On the court application form there are two options saying that

"at the trial I intended to challenge the eidence of the provincial offences officer who completed the parking infraction notice and certificate of parking infraction"

YES OR NO?

basically I don't really have an evidence...but if I check "no" then the officer will not show up.

Do I treat this like a speeding ticket?? If officer shows up then I lose and if not I win automatically??

OR.. will they just drop my ticket if I bring this to the trial?

I heard that many of you didn't really get a trial date even you requested it and does it mean they dropped it??


I am damn pissed... I saw the parking guy parked his car at ramdom place and went to Tim Hortons.. and he gave me a ticket afterwards..

Please advise.. I know I should the sign look more carefully next time but I really want to deal with this right now.

just like when I parked in front of a fire hydrant and was nailed for $100. $250 sucks even more - damn!

If there was a sign you have no choice but to pay. If the sign was not there you can fight it and win.

you might as well just fight it, and hope they dont give you a date. best case: don't pay anything, worst case: pay the 250 that you already owe

What should you do?

You should probably pay the ticket and not park there again.....?
