Refer to the Diamond Parking thread? I think the most they'll do is call you continuously and send it to a collection agency

Been working for Impark since last October.

OP: PM me your licence plate number and house address. I'll look it up on the system when I get to work later this afternoon, and see what I can do for you.

I tear up the Diamond/Metro/Insert random lot name tickets and nothing ever happens to me except a couple of ridiculous notices. Credit score is also sky high. I do find Impark lots to be a bit too common to ignore so I would try to work with them to reduce the fine in case I find use for their lots again... but as long as you're 100% sure you're not going to go over time on their lots they won't scan your plate.

I would say suck it up and pay but $80 is ridiculous, they just make up these charges and have no true legal way of getting them. They probably had a model figured out where an x percentage of people would pay at $40 vs $80 and decided $80 just made more money for them.

Call them up, explain your situation and they might lower the cost of your ticket. Say it was an honest mistake, which hopefully it was.

i parked in a dt impark lot, the meter was broken and the security/guard there even told me to not worry about it because the system was down.. and i got a ticket on my window when i got back..

i tried looking for the security guy again waving around my ticket but i couldnt find him, no one was there so i just left.
Now im getting all sorts of letters from these guys.. guess i should call them soon, bunch of idiots

I only pay the city ones (i.e. city of Vancouver).

Got a ticket last week at a Impark lot and won't be paying for it either

Nobody's gonna take you to court for $80. You might get a few phone calls and letters that sound threatening (its just hocus pocus) when they try to collect, but after awhile they stop. Buddy had at least a G, if not more in tickets on a car I lent him over a continuous period of a few months, and nothing came out of it that I know of.

If Diamond parking can do an illegal search for your address and home phone number then I doubt changing plates will work. Didn't for me had ppl calling for 3+ years.

3 years is long. My calls only last a few weeks. How do they decide how persistent they want to be with a person? If you have a cell phone just download a call blocker app or set the number they call from to silent.

It works.

The illegal search of your address and phone number happens after you get a ticket and don't pay.

If you're just being issued a ticket with your new plates the previous outstanding ticket(s) won't show up on the spot.
