Nice amusing answers and some hostile.. and unfortunately only two were good suggestions. I was only 11 minutes late.. I guess nobody goes there for banquet dinners that start at 6pm and end at 10pm?

I've already paid the ticket and notified them of my vote to think about extending parking time. In no way did I request a refund, or for them to cancel anything. No harm done.

And to those with many kids, hats off to you for running a tight ship.

Thanks for the quick feedback!

damn $60 for spending too much time at their mall is a little ridiculous I understand that it's good for deterring people who abuse free parking especially since they are pretty close to the canada line but it also hurts shoppers like the OP who genuinely spends a lot of time and probably money in their mall, IMO 3 hrs is reasonable for a mall like aberdeen there's really not much to do except for eat.

Metrotown's 4hr limit is a little unreasonable to me though, one (especially a family) could easily spend >4 hrs if they watch a movie, grab a bite, and shop through the huge mall, thankfully I haven't been ticketed by them yet but I know friends who have.

I got a parking ticket once at Aberdeen when I parked just over 3 hours, since I was waiting for the girl at Party Goodies to finish filling up a bunch of balloons I ordered.

I talked to one of the securities and he told me to talk to Aberdeen's management office, which is located across Parker Place on Hazelbridge Way. I explained my situation to the lady at the management office and showed her my receipt; she told me she'll send a photocopy of my receipt to Impark to waive the ticket for me.

Think of it this way, you're teaching your kids about time management if you pull them out of there by 3 hours.

IMO paying the ticket is just saying to them that you give in, dont care, and agree with their rules. I would've at least talked to aberdeen management before paying.

Park on the 4th floor, it only takes a couple minutes to reach the top. Pay the ticket. Next time, watch the time when going to aberdeen.

Anyone know how long you can park on the street in front of aberdeen?

It's pay parking, but is there a limit?

+1 I usually hear people doing this at metro though.

When they receive a ticket (warning), they simply show receipts of what they bought at the mall and show it to security, and the warning is gone.

Maybe if you could have done this?

Tougher if the only thing you bought were food though

If you were legit shopping, I would try to get it waived. I'm sure they DO want your recurring business even though you stayed longer than a limit that's there to deal with another problem.

good luck with getting it waived though. or at least a deduction. all else fails, a new plate is only $18

I was thinking the same thing. Other than the kids play place upstairs and Deiso I couldn't spend more than 30 mins in that mall without getting bored of the lack of selection of stores.

That is completely true. I'll just watch out next time. I understand they must have rules and limitations to avoid people parking there and using the Skytrain (which is why they probably enforce it....)
Then this should be a non issue. If I was caught speeding in a school zone by 11 mph above the legal limit I wouldn't come on here and whine about it. The parking lot attendent is just doing his job and if you don't like their stipulations then don't park there next time. Its their property not yours. Its there way or the highway i'm afraid. Pay the ticket and make sure to keep your eye on your watch or set a timer on it.

If everyone whined and complained about fines and tickets I would be as rich as bill gates. Even 1 minute is over the time limit. Not much more to say that that. Oh and I've been ticketed more time than I can count from IM park and I always pay the fine. You can always take the skytrain and not worry about car parking.

next time walk back to your car. wipe the chalk off your tires. walk back in for 3 more hours. there. you've effectively wasted 6 hours of your life in a half empty mall.

I think working there is different for us. I got one before when I was at Impulse. Told my Manager and she told me to say I was shopping and eating there and lost track of time for about 30 min instead of saying I was working and didn't remember to move my car. Sucks working there honestly
