Committed the infraction: Code 9 - Stop - Signed Highway - During Prohibited (time/day).

Issue I have is that I had an accessible parking permit displayed, and there were no rush hour limitations (which I am not exempted from) indicated.

Thoughts? I would be the black car in the attached picture.

That looks like a No Stopping sign.... you're not exempt from posted No Standing and No Stopping areas with your accessible parking permit.

TORONTO
I was given a ticket showing code 364: "Stand vehicle in on-street accessible parking space without proper display of valid permit" at a spot that had only just changed to a disabled loading zone a few days earlier. I had parked there weekly for over a year without any problems before it was changed . It was a dark rainy night so I didn't see the new signs on the pole being too preoccupied with getting out of the car and running from the rain. From reading the Toronto municipal parking code I noticed that disabled parking spaces and disabled loading zones are treated in different clauses so I thought code 364 might be wrong in this situation. I applied to see if that was grounds for cancelling the ticket but was refused. Given the amount involved I did a bit more research and I've found references to both Code 361 and Code 369 for disabled loading zones but I couldn't find the wordings associated with these codes. Is there a difference significant difference between these two codes (361 and 369) and Code 364? Should I fight the ticket? Thanks.

I received a parking ticket on Danforth and Broadview at 8:59PM for Code No. 207: "Parking machine-Required fee not paid", 1 minute before 9PM free parking, I did not put in money into the pay and display because I left my car at 8:57 and I figured 3 minutes was safe from parking enforcement, of course I was wrong. I was reading that 10 minutes grace period for pay and display receipt holders, does this situation apply to me? Should I attempt to get it cancelled or is my only option to set a court date?

Hi guys, I got this ticket for Code 5 on a Sunday evening on Yonge ST. I believe I parked my car right under a sign illustrating valid parking hour. I had other cars in front and behind me without tickets.

I paid my parking fee (as indicated in the picture) at 19:07 and placed on the dash immediately, whereas the infraction notice was issued 7:11 PM (also in the picture).

Do you guys think I have a chance to argue?

Thank you.

Hi OP,

My girlfriend's car was parked in North York Toronto after 2AM March 26. Was issued a ticket for "Winter Bylaw", no parking between 2 AM to 6AM Dec 1 to March 31.

The ticket was issued at 2:02 AM without a grace period. Do you know if we can fight this?

Thanks!

I think you meet the criteria to dispute your ticket via email - http://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/conte ... d60f89RCRD

I ended up taking this to the temporary parking office at City Hall and they cancelled it on the spot, the lady said it was ridiculous that i got the ticket at 8:59.

Hi gang. So i have a street parking permit that allows me to park from January to May, as long as I move the car to the other side of the street at the middle of the month. yet somehow I still got three tickets in three in 3 days from the same parking officer, cited for parking longer then a hour. I don't even understand. What is the person's problem? I am legally allowed to park there. Now I can't even go back to the street, even if I go back they will come back to ticket me again.

What should I do? I really don't want to spend time to fight the tickets in court, but I am no way paying 120$ dollars. Are they going to throw the ticket out if I show up at the court office with my parking permit papers? Thanks
