parking ticket

Last week I had a parking ticket for parking in the blue zone...

Fair enough you might think... apart from that I had a residents parking card in the middle of the dash in plain view...

So I took the ticket and my parking permit to the police station expecting them to tell me I had it on the wrong side of the car or it wasn't clearly visible or something...

But no... they just cancelled the ticket...

just like that... no problem... no questions... and very quickly...

I was impressed

Re: parking ticket

I once got one at Ponte Tresa, despite the paid ticket being in my car, so I brought it to another cop that I found, and he said no problem, he'd take care of it, and apparently he did, as ten years on I've heard nothing more!

Same with once at Ponte Brolla, where the ticket had slipped under the darkened lower part of the windshield, took it to the cops, no problem.

I've still got UK plates, so I'm not sure I'll ever find out...

When you cross the border, if they check the car it can get rather expensive, unless you have to attend court & your arrested.

Re: parking ticket

I got a ticket in a parking bay with a valid ticket displayed, my ticket said I was out of time, I send a letter to the police with a copy of the ticketů.

My reply was ' Our officers do not made mistakes please pay or suffer more penalties..'

I paid under protest but sent the response and the ticket to my lawyer..We will see
