Re: Parking fines....

I hate coming across Pasi's polls before they're completed. It's really confusing...

Re: Parking fines....

I reckon it's going to be 'how many have you had'.
I've had none.

You're good Bazza

Not the first time you've intercepted my poll thread when the poll's not done yet (and I do the poll before posting, I just paste the answers from a text editor )

Re: Parking fines....

I've had 2

One when I went to pick up my friend from downtown.... couldn't find a free parking place and didn't want to pay for few minutes stop in the end, I paid 40 of it

and second when I left the car to a 4 hour free parking space in front of my home for a night

Re: Parking fines....

Re: Parking fines....

15,000 yen ($150) for a parking fine in Japan, so I only had to get one before I started paying the parking lot piper (usually $6/hour!).

Re: Parking fines....

wow thats really expensive, is that like in Tokyo centre area? cos like UK different places have different pricing system.

my mate's car was issued a ticket and clamped at the same time by an independant company in Soho London last week. 60 pounds fine for ticket, then 2 hours wait for the bloke to unclamp it costing another 120 pounds.

how can they do that?? i understand parking in unauthorised territory is wrong, but the ticket officer did not need to call up to get it clamped as well?! either that or the payment should be made to one single payment, as i suspect the guy who unclamped it put the money in his own pocket as he was demanding it in cash before proceeding. perhaps half half with the officer as well??

Re: Parking fines....

Once got one for parking my despatch bike on a double red in centre of London yeah, i know my own fault entirely but hey, the firm paid it
Got another when i revisited Margate havoing not lived there for a year and forgetting that Kent Councils charge for parking in supermarket car parks luckily a nice man parked nearby spotted my mistake and gave me his ticket and i got away with it

No problems with parking but speeding tickets are another question
