Parking ticket with a wrong license plate. How to deal

Got a parking ticket, yet license plate # was written wrong. Is that automatically void or do I have to call someone? Never had it so I am unsure what to do.

I would'nt do anything. Wrong license plate number means that they will never be able to find you. They will send the ticket to the licnese plate number's owner, and this guy will clearly see that the ticket does not match is car. Let's say you have a Hyundai Pony 1986 like this one https://www.autotrader.ca/a/hyundai/pon ... fl&sprx=-1 plated 11AA and your ticket shows Hyundai Pony plated 22AA then they will send the ticket to the owner of the 11AA plate, but this guy owns a Porsche Cayenne 2020. Got it? ;)

Wait and see if you receive a notice in the mail. If you do, they've tracked you down; if not, they haven't and you are off the hook.

How wrong was the ticket? Was it like 111 Aaa instead of aaa 111? If that they will track you down.

If you fight it wouldn't it still get dropped for inaccurate information?

Put it in the garbage can, the ticket is invalid.
