Brampton parking tickets will no longer be disputed in court
While they're trying to make it sound like a positive thing, it looks like it's designed to maximise the revenues from fines and to reduce the possibility of charges being thrown out or reduced in court.
So parking tickets are no longer fines that can be disputed in court in front of a JP, according to this. They are administrative penalties and are dealt with by City staff only. Apparently, Toronto is considering such a system as well. Other municipalities already have them: Mississauga, Vaughan, Burlington and Oshawa.
