Here are the Top Five Excuses to Get Out of a Parking Ticket Which Actually Work 8% of the Time
I’ve NEVER been able to talk my way out of a parking ticket and the parking cops don’t even seem like they’re listening when I try.
But according to a new survey, about one out of 12 people say they’ve successfully gotten out of a parking ticket even when they KNEW they were wrong. That’s about 8% talking their way out of tickets, which is surprisingly high.
Here are the top five excuses people have given that worked…
#1.) The parking rules weren’t clear.
#2.) I was only gone for a second.
#3.) I was looking for change for a meter, or a place to buy a ticket for the lot.
#4.) I had a personal emergency.
#5.) I had a parking pass but lost it.
The survey also found that 14% of people paid up to $162 in parking tickets last year.
