Parking Payout


Posted by Shawn Gao

When I came back from NYC, I drove with two parking violation tickets in car, which is 100 dollar each. Without knowing any parking policy, I was fined in front of parking signs, which said “No Parking Without Commercial Vehicle”, but before I parked in that place with asking one police in that area. I cannot see why the parking violation fee in NYC is so expensive by comparing with violation fee in Syracuse, which is 35 dollar each.
People in cities also claim what they happened when they got the violation tickets. For example, Mr. Robert who did not find out a violation ticket which was find 5 years ago, and received a letter from city collection agent for his added- up penalty $1,012. Only choice that he had is either write a check to payout or hire a lawyer. As that second option would have cost at least twice as much, he really had no choice at all.
What can people do? City councilman Bernard argue if collection agent could limit fines to no more than five times the original penalty. However, other officials are considering whether limiting fines would decrease the parking revenue or not.
I would hope the city will still choose to do the right thing.
