I didn’t have any money to purchase a parking pass and now I have received three tickets for failure to register. What should I have done?
The lot I normally park in was full so I parked on the grass. Why did I get a ticket?
My vehicle broke down in the parking lot so I just left it there until I could get it fixed/towed and I got a ticket on it. What should I have done?
