Did you know that when you are parking in Vancouver and if you get a ticket at a meter you can get it waived on a one time only basis? It’s true. The Vancouver Sun has done an in-depth study on parking in Vancouver and has come up with its list of Parking Secrets.
My favorite secret is…number 3 that states, "For parking-meter tickets only, every driver in the city is entitled to
one “courtesy cancellation.” If you call 604-257-8732, and ask nicely,
the city will usually waive your fine. Each licence plate gets only one
free pass over the life of the vehicle."
This cheeky monkey thinks that this is because the meters sometimes do not read the coins and therefore do not give the time paid for and the City of Vancouver knows this and is giving the parker the benefit of the doubt.Social tagging: Vancouver
