Saves the 6 bucks and/or 50 cents and the ticket :lol:

Watching parking wars on TV. One guy gets a ticket every day...to park legally it was $26 bucks for a day, but a parking ticket (if tagged) was only $21 :shock:
It's so funny you should mention that: I'm not from Toronto, but I was there for a weekend once, and I parked in an area that was clearly marked "2 hour parking". There was lots of snow on the ground, but the sign was pretty clear. I parked, left the car, and came back probably an hour and a half later to find a ticket for $30 for "parked without permit" and it said that it was a disabled spot! I was shocked! But being from out of town I just decided to mail my payment and take my licks on that one.

However: At my school, parking passes are $400 for the year (2 terms). Last year I got one on the first day of school, no problems. This year, I went on the first day and they were sold out of all the lots that were within reasonable walking distance to the campus. So I decided to put aside that $400 for tickets for the year. Each ticket is $15, and as of this month they have gone up to $25. I've only gotten 5 or 6 tickets since September, and now the 2nd term of the year is well under way, so I'm way ahead. Still a few weeks to go this term, but it's looking promising.

I wonder if the students at York University will get free passes, if and when classes resume!

I know, I went there! If you don't get there at 8am, or have one of the card access lots, you're basically screwed.

Forgive me if I come across as little dense...but parking tickets given by private companies or even city councils are surely illegal.

If someone requests that you pay an amount, surely you have to have agreed to pay for your default by having agreed to pay them by way of a contract with them if you fail to comply with their terms ? I don't recall having signed any contract with any company or City office agreeing to pay a fine for parking in any given space that they claim to own or have control over?

I tend to be a little matter of fact at times and usually see things straight down the middle as it were....so maybe I am missing something on the peripheries. Anyone else have any thoughts on this ?

They screw you with the by-laws.
It takes time but you can screw them back.
