Sending in the ticket today.

I'm gonna send the parking ticket in today. I'm going to write a nice letter for them along with the payment. Any ideas on what to write? Will this get me into trouble with the law?

Trust me, the person who opens up your envelope is far far removed from the policy-makers and enforcement staff who wrote you the ticket. You're wasting your (and their) time. Just pay, learn from the experience and move on.

Oh since you put it like that, I guess there would be no point. But this is what I was going to write. .


"Only 20 dollars? That’s cheaper than staying at the public parking for the amount of time I parked in the alleged “taxi zone”. You can do better than that… especially on a guy with a new C6 Corvette.."

Just pay the ticket and stop crying dude. Here you do not get parking tickets, they simply smash your car up. You are lucky to live in a country that has rules. I would rather have a parking ticket and my car in one piece

If I don't know what a Chevy C6 is, or why it's remotely relevant to a parking ticket, it's fair to assume some low level paper pusher in the City's finance department won't either.
