He then proceeds to write the greatest F-You letter ever to the parking enforcement department. Bravo, guy!

There is no way in in hell that a parking ticket in the U.S. would get dismissed, even under these circumstances.

I`m glad this man knew what he was doing, and that the law actually understood this time.

The meters in my town are a massive $0.25 but the fine is $10. Since a lot of people don`t carry coins with them they have to run into the store to get a quarter, run back out and pay. Of course, our meter maids are faster than that and will have a ticket printing out and quickly inform you that they`ve "already put your tag number in so the ticket is already in the system."

Johan, it happens. There are some jerks out there who will write a ticket every chance they get. We really don`t know who was right in this case. But some parking officers are just idiots. So I totally believe it.

Can they send some of those cops here to Rio? Here people stop their cars right under the "no stop/no park" sign, turn on the emergency lights, and can be away for hours! And nothing happens! Park on the side walk? No problem! Motorcycle bypassing traffic by driving on the side walk? Get out of his way!

And they ("they" - I definitely don`t) want to host the Olympics and the World Cup (2016 and 2014)? Ha, ha, ha.... ha, ha, haaaa.... aaaa hhhh. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

I wonder how this person could have proven that he was in his right.
I mean the car could have been parked there for some time and just when the parking officer writes out his ticket this guy quickly pays for a parking ticket to `prove` that he was just buying the ticket after he had parked.
Unless there was videofootage of the incident, there is never enough proof to know for sure.

And say what you will about parking officers, i can`t believe anyone would give a ticket that fast with the parking meter only eight steps away and someone standing there buying a ticket.

Actually, there is a general principal at work here worth knowing. When you send a letter to the council/parking office, obviously, its not worth the time or effort to find out what really happened on their part, even assuming that the parking attendant remembers YOUR car from thousands of others, which he/she won`t. All the authority does when they get your letter is check the computer to make sure you haven`t protested hundreds of previous ones, and if you`re "clean", 99% of the time they`ll just accept your letter and cancel it.

I`ve watched that show `Parking Wars`, Philadelphia is certainly NOT `the city of brotherly love`. One time I got a letter in the mail saying I owed over $100 for an unpaid parking ticket, Written in Chicago, And I`ve never even driven to Chicago ! After 3 calls and mailing them 2 pieces of proof that I couldn`t have been there on that date, They finally dropped the ticket.

Where I used to live they quit using parking meters and started using city parking stickers. Every resident pays $10 a year to park in the city and you can park all day. Tourists and people from out of town have 1 or 2 hour limits, Depending on location. It`s a lot friendlier system.

This is precisely why hubby takes the train into work...Melbourne parking officers = devil spawn. But at least soon no one will have to worry...they`re intending to change parking in the CBD so no one can bring their cars into the inner city at all. Yay *rolls eyes*

I get the concept and logic behind ticketing people for parking infringements, but it`s INSANE to charge often hundreds of dollars for a 25 cent parking spot. And just how does an $8 parking spot = $58 in ticketing fees? You`d have to park there for over 7 hours for that even to work out logically.

He was parking on LaTrobe street which is right in the middle of the CBD. That`s why it costs so much. Drive out 10 minutes from the city and it`s free to park.

Actually I used to get a parking ticket EVERY time I parked, even if I was only 20 seconds past the expiry time getting back. Now I have a sign I put on the dashboard next to my permit which reads "I`m a Disabled Pensioner now, so stick it up your a*s"

"WOW what kind of parking meter costs $8.00?!!"
I live in Downtown Phoenix and parking in a garage is about 4 dollars an hour. Or more. Parking near a meter is 25 cents for 15 minutes. Parking on an open lot is 5 bucks for 12 hours.

Nice he got his ticket withdrawn so good for him. I`m sure parking enforcers have seen much angrier people than this dude at least he wrote out a letter and didn`t just chase the dude down with sticks.

once they start writing it they have to give it. the parking guy didnt see him behind his car and started writing it. doesnt sound like hes mad at the parking guy, though, who probably said to contest it.

MrVandercar: Is there a vehicle code or muni code exemption that allows you to double park while making a delivery? If not, then, not to be an ass, but does it matter if you`re just making a delivery if you`re illegally double parked?

as a former delivery drive in a metropolitan area, i know what roostersuckers parking enforcement can be. I have double parked(with the delivery sign on top of my vehicle), met the customer next to my car, and was given a ticket while recieving payment for the food.

Idk, the people saying he didn`t have to be a jerk about it, maybe you haven`t gotten a ticket that wasn`t your fault before after explaining he went to go pay the cop still wrote the ticket the suckish part about people who ticket law enforcement/parking is whether your @ fault or not YOU have to pay, so whenever you have the chance to be a dick to law enforcement I encourage you to take the chance.

Dude is a douche. He ended a decent letter with "this is bullpoo". I`ve gotten many a parking tickets here in c-ville VA. But whey they are ridiculous I send a letter and they usually oblige. He was obvioulsy fuming at this, but there was no reason to be. just ask nicely, present the facts, and only then be a dick if they don`t come to reason. dick is dick.

"check the offence date and the pay by date"

While I don`t know for sure, I`m assuming Australia uses the same format as much of the rest of the world, that being day/month/year, as opposed to the US using month/day/year.

So the offense probably occurred on March 11th and the pay by date is April 9th.

Garbug - you`re an idiot. Just about every country other than the U.S. puts the day before the month in written dates. Did you not think of that? You`re 50?

tell me about it 5Cats, it`s rather annoying. But little known fact about toronto parking tickets. If you file for a court date, you never get one and the ticket is dropped (at least it used to be). They discovered that it was cheaper to dismiss the tickets then take them to court, but they obviously never told anyone about this little loophole.

Well, at least they withdrew it.
Here in Canada they make you go to the Courthouse (which usually means missing a half-day of work) to voice any complaint.
Then if you`re lucky enough to get past the ticket person (who has, it`s true, heard it ALL before) you have to go on one particular day (miss more work) to see the judge.
