Un-reasonable By-Law notice letter (ticket)
Today, I got a letter from City of Vancouver.
It said that I have stopped where prohibited, and the fine is $50 ($150 if not paid in time).
This is the description:
Vehicle Description: BMW
License Plate: 000XXX
Location: IN S/S ALBERNI ST.
Offence Date & Time: May 6, 2011 8:50 PM
Section Description: STOP WHERE PROHIBITED
Officer #: 0259
Please note that I did not receive any tickets, nor notice by any officer..
This letter just appeared in my mail box.
As you can see in the vehicle description, it simply says BMW. If they really caught someone, shouldn't they be having more information on the vehicle, such as CAR MODEL and COLOR?
Plus, I have not received any tickets.. is this the lawful way of fining someone?
I am really swamped why I am receiving this letter, and totally clueless on when I have stopped at the prohibited zone. They can't just write down the license plate of a car they hate, and slap a fine in their mail box..
Can anyone give me any suggestions? Should I dispute this ticket, or should I just pay the $50 and call this an unlucky day?
