Seems like a rip-off. Why pay $6.30 when you can spend 1/12 of that on postage(52 cents)?

You can pay the parking ticket by mail, visa and online for your convience.

However you CANNOT set a date trial date by mail, so say's option 3 on the back of a Toronto Parking Infraction Notice.
You or your agent must appear in person to set a trail date!

Well worth the 6 bucks!

The last time I went to do that I had to pay .50$ in the meter.
That is minimum.
Then you add on time and other bs $6.00 is not bad

Just don't be so lazy or cheap and park where you are supposed to.

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:

Get a motorcycle and you don't have to pay for parking, in fact if you go to 55 John Street to set a date, there is a a good looking blonde there and plenty of eye candy :)

I took this shot in the summer on one of visits to 55 John Street!

Savings of $5 per day by breaking the law. :?

I get the feeling that the people responsible for the ticket being less than the pay parking won't figure it out even with the TV publicity.

Would you rather fall off the chair upon seeing a winter shot of mc's?

Took 3 parking tickets in today to John St. Went at lunch time, no line-up. I mean NO lineup at all. Took 3 minutes. And I didn't have a ticket when I got back to my car! Must be Christmas :-)

In my opinion the lazy person is the one who uses visa and pays over phone.

I have over 10 challenged tickets to me and I have not heard back from any of them (for the court date)

There are something near 500,000 outstanding tickets out there and only
about 50 get delt with in a day.

I am a courier so they usually just delete most of my tickets.I have some that are over 3 years with no court date or response.


I think I could go in and check after 3 or more years and get them to delete them.

not outstanding just waiting for them to send me a court date.
In my case for some of them 3 years and no response.

As to stock hehe.I have paid them a lot.

When-ever you have a fine that you cannot pay on time you can go to the court and ask to talk to the jp.

You have to fill in forms and have the print-out
from toronto.

Toronto charges about a $ each for these now.

If you ever want a KODAC moment do this with a large handfull of those forms while waiting in the jp's office.

They will downgrade most of the tickets if you are nice to them and fill most of the forms leaving only the part they sign to them.
