I saw your article on Parking Tickets in the city. For your consideration. I have also sent a copy to the Mayor, my City Councillor and the Ombudsman's Office.They have expressed sympathy but advised my only recourse is to go to court.
A friend recently received a parking ticket on my street, Third St. in Etobicoke.
Permits are required as of 12 a.m. The ticket was issued at 12:02. a.m. According to my clock my friend left my house by 12:00
I would challenge the City to provide proof that their clocks are accurate to the minute.
I understand there is a grace period for metered parking, I don't understand why there isn't a similar grace period for permit parking.
I think the actions of the parking officer were predatory to say the least in this case. I have lived on the street for 21 years. I can say with some assurance that space for permit parking holders is NOT at a premium as it may be on some streets in the City.
I object to having to take time off work to appear at a Parking Tag Operations office during work hrs. to request a trial option rather than being able to submit a trial option via fax or telephone or on line. If you can accept payment by these other methods, people should be allowed to file a dispute using the same means. It's only fair. I trust you will adopt the Ombudsman's recommendations to make the process more user friendly.
I would invite the Parking Authority to visit Third St. during the day and ticket the large number of employees, primarily from Campbell's Soup that use street parking as employee parking all day, Mon to Fri.
The street is also well used by the people who visit the Toronto Police College and the Military Training College on weekends and evenings. I wonder how often tickets are issued during the times and days when these organizations are hosting special events?
It appears the only people who are targeted are the guests of residents who park beyond the time of 12.
I don't mind paying a ticket for an honest infraction but this just feels like a cash grab on the part of the city.
