Parking ticket disappeared from the windshield

It was raining so hard when i decided to park my car in front of the apartment ( zone 30min ) as i have my newborn baby and i cant find any parking nearby....after my older son came back from school (of course its more than 30min) he told me that i got fine ticket..., when i went to the car the ticket wasn’t there anymore...
As i’m new here in switzerland, i dont know what should i do?
Are they gonna send any reminder my bail for the fine ticket? Or should i call/ask to the police for a copy? Does anyone have an advice? Thanks before...

You should contact the municiple police asap and get them to confirm whether there is an outstanding fine or not. If there is, they should be able to give you details on the amount and a reference number. Leaving it will only result in further penalties.

There are instructions from the neighbouring canton of Geneva for lost/destroyed tickets which should also apply to Vaud

Re: Parking ticket disappeared from the windshield

there shouldn't be any penalties as there is no proof that you've received the ticket.
they will send it again in the mail with a reminder.

On the other hand, having an opportunity to explain the infraction might have positive results.

The Vaud police have a bit of a reputation, which I think is undeserved. It certainly won’t hurt.

Re: Parking ticket disappeared from the windshield

You don't have to do anything. Happens all the time. People take it and put it on their own car in order not to get a fine (no kidding, great system ), I usually don't see them until they fly off the windscreen wiper on the highway (and no I don't stop and run after them) .... what ever.
Police knows this is not a reliable way to fine you, so if you don't pay within 30 days you will get a reminder. That is when you don't wait too long to pay it.
