Parking tickets -> wtf?!?

I got 2 parking tickets being parked on the same road in one day. I parked there in the morning, got a ticket at 11:45am, and another ticket at 6pm. Isnt the law that you cant get more than one ticket in the same place within 24 hours?

it has to be pretty much the same spot in one day & you have to leave the first ticket still on your windshield I think

there must be a number of maximum hours you can park there as well, maybe you past the limit & that's why they gave you another ticket

you can pay parking tickets almost anytime, you just have to do it before you renew your licence sticker for you plates, I see many tickets in customers cars dated many months ago like a whole stack of them, they don't pay because they are to busy so they wait until they have too much to fit into the glove box

When I was in high school, I used to run one of the stores our family owned nearby.

I got a parking ticket written up WHILE I was running to my car after school. I yelled out to the guy, but he continued to open up his book AFTER making eye contact with me and he wrote up the ticket. As I stood there. I told him that he was an asshole and that what goes around, comes around. He then went into "are you threatening me?" I said no and I shut the hell up. Almost every car on the street had a ticket, including at least 3 or 4 of my friends' cars.

Not 30 mins later, he showed up at my store. He didn't look at me, just walked to the back, picked up a self-serve coffee, and came to the front and put 50 cents on the counter as he sipped it.

I told him the coffee was $40.00.

He looked up and said "you can't do that". I slapped the ticket on the counter and said PAY FOR THE COFFEE or I'm calling the police mother****er and pointed at the camera recording him.

I ended up locking the doors and calling the police. My parking ticket was $15. He ended up paying the $40.00 because when I called the police, they said he would be arrested and charged with theft. They advised him to pay, and he did.

I had at LEAST 10 of my school friends in the store playing video games and laughing and making fun of the guy during the whole ordeal. On his way out, someone threw a slushie at him (blue of all colors). I didn't condone that action, but I "lost" the tape when he called the police, so nothing could be done. He tried to sue us, but lost that too... hahah

Just pay the tickets and be done with it.

The Parking Authority says the GUIDELINE is 1 hour to remedy the situation before you receive another ticket (Markham anyways). I got a ticket for leaving my car on the street in front of my house one night by accident.

You can't park on the street without a permit unless it is marked that you can park overnight. (depends on which province too)
