I was ticketed last month at Royal Inland Hospital. I paid for four hours and knew my time was up, but I was in a hospital gown, having tests done, so I could hardly go out to pay.
There was a phone number on the ticket. I called and explained why I had let the time expire and they forgave the charge.
I totally agree with the sentiments expressed by Ferguson and Somlai, but although you shouldn’t have to, you can get the ticket forgiven quite easily.
