Parking Ticket - Failure to Display Valid Pass
Recently I was given a ticket due to parking without the correct pass.
My Mother currently works for the airlines and provided me with her own Parking pass so I could park my car there while I was on vacation. She told me specifically where to park so I don't have to pay incredible parking fees while my car is there.
However, I had accidentally parked one lot over from the actual parking lot, resulting in a $45 parking ticket if I pay within the 7 days.
Although I had successfully displayed a legitimate parking pass on my front dashboard, I had simply mistaken the lot I was supposed to be in for the next one over.
Thing is, I know I should pay, but from reading stories here on Revscene, (i've searched around the forum), some people have refused to pay and continue living their lives as if nothing happened (although 3 parking tickets = tow)
I still think that the patrolmen was acting a little harsh on his end knowing that the wrong lot pass was displayed, and could have at least issued me a warning.
What should I do? Please help me!
