4.0 CHANGE-OVER DATES - GPR
(Applies to regular and temporary permits)
Normal grace period is from 9:00pm the previous evening and extends to 9:00am of next morning. Give consideration for either side of the street during this 12-hour period. However, use judgement in this regard. For example, if tag issued is prior to noon and prior infraction history is minimal, then consideration to withdraw should be made after an explanation of the guidelines is given.
so what should I do when I go to the office, do I just need to mention this Guidelines and my reasons and asking for cancellation?
Any help would be appreciated!!
From what I understand this is still currently a valid document with guidelines that the Parking Ticket office staff use to decide if they can cancel a ticket or not. So it definitely will be to your advantage to mention it and have a copy there to point out the specific guideline to them. If they try to give you a run-around and tell you that the only thing you can do is request a trial to fight the ticket, be firm but polite, and ask them to cancel the ticket as per the guideline in the document. Ask to speak to their supervisor if necessary. Hopefully they'll be fair and will just follow the guideline when you point it out.
