Car Parking Fine_Zurich

Hello All,

Before I mention my experience, i want to be honest in saying. It was totally my mistake.

So I was visiting a friend and I parked in someone else's personal parking spot. I must have parked for an hour. There was an emergency with my friend and I had to go and see to him. I could neither find a parking spot (blue zone) nor besucher. I parked in 1 of the 4 free but private parking spot.

I came back after an hour or so and found a orange slip. This was made by the guy who owns the spot and asked me to pay 40 CHF to his personal bank account. He also mentions if not paid, he will inform authorities, i assume this is betreibungsamt.

Now once again, I was totally wrong in doing so. It is none of his concern to adjust to my emergency, neither does he know me nor does he know there was an emergency and even if he knew it is not his concern, totally get that.

however, is this normal procedure to decide on what the fine is by an individual and ask me to pay him in his personal bank account rather than report to authorities (whoever that is i.e. police) ?
