Re: Parking ticket (Zürich)

Today Dan and I drove to Zürich to experience some VR fun (it was a lot of fun, btw). We parked in front of the business, but when we came out less than an hour later, there was a parking ticket under the wiper. Apparently the spot that I parked in didn't belong to the VR business, but to someone else. The signage in the lot was pretty poor, and I'd say that 80% of the parking spots were empty. The ticket is from a private firm (so not handed out by the city). An employee from the VR business was outside when we found the ticket and seemed incredibly apologetic.

Ok, so the question is: what happens if we don't pay this ticket?
Was there a judicial sign, that you're not allowed to park? Gerichtliches (Park-)Verbot gemäss Art. 258 Abs. 1 Zivilprozessordnung (ZPO)

What you got is a demand for "Umriebsentschädigung". Legal between 30-50 Franks. BUT, this is not a fine. If they do have a judicial sign up (which is very expensive to get for them), they have the right to report you to the police.
Now whether it's their habit to do that if the "Umtriebsentschädigung" is not paid or not differs from firm to firm.
So you can wait for the official fine from the police, if you want to.
