HOW TO GET OUT OF ANY PARKING TICKET
- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK The cost of a parking ticket is no laughing matter. Particularly for those living in urban areas, parking ticket expenses can add up quickly and put a serious dent in one's budget. Additionally, recent studies have given support to anecdotal evidence that parking fees often increase substantially following poor economic times for cities and municipalities. This can lead to sticker shock for someone who receives their first parking ticket in a number of years. While in some instances it may be true that ?You can't fight City Hall,? it doesn't mean that fighting a parking ticket is always a pointless endeavor. For those willing to put in a little bit of effort in explaining why they don't think they should have to pay it's not unreasonable to expect an outcome that doesn't end with forking over $100 or more. Of course, getting out of parking tickets is downright difficult if your best argument is simply that you don't want to pay. If you parked illegally, chances are you will have to pay (though not always). But if you truly feel you were in the right and the city was in the wrong, fighting a ticket can be a worthwhile and money-saving endeavor.
