Need some advice to dispute a parking ticket. I work in downtown and yesterday I received a parking ticket because I didn’t put enough money in the meter. I intend to pay for that ticket. But today I received a second ticket at the same street and roughly the same time. I know I added enough money in the meter today because of what happen yesterday. The f@#k up thing was the time of the written ticket occurred on 7:46 pm which at 8 pm the meters will be free, that’s fu@king 14 minutes away, that’s 35 cent to be added in the meter. 25 cent for 10 minutes and 10 cent for 4 minutes, yeah I know the prices. I park there all the time know the rules and still get a ticket. What should I say? Should I tell them I was looking for some change but the closest store was a 4 minute walk. I mean its only 14 minutes away from being free. And please don’t defend them and cop out by saying “it’s their job” because they don’t have to write you a ticket when the time frame is closing in for free parking.
I was driving my car if that helps, and thanks in advance
