    How does someone know if they have a parking ticket? People can let friends and family borrow their car; and there is no way for the owner to know their vehicle got a parking ticket. No way a car owner can be punished for a parking ticket without proof they parked the car illegally.

    Is there a website where people can see if they have any outstanding tickets?

    • sandgrownan says:

      Well, that would be obvious and require common sense. A website to pay online would be helpful too, instead of the current BS of driving to town, trying to park, and then the wait while a single cashier processes each payment.

      • trufth says:

        Exactly, and after waiting forever in a cashier line you come out to find a parking ticket on your car because it took so long.

    The tickets should be in the system so when they go to relicence their vehicle it will have to be paid first

      Automating that idea was proposed a few years ago for any money owed government. Something like $250+ MILLION in taxes, fees, etc. It did not fly with the approval authorities because it would upset the balance of the family and friend’s discounts, and cross department lines where certain people are god-like.

      Imagine owing back property taxes and having your car and driver’s license renewals frozen until you pay up. Why would TDC work with the Tax Commissioner’s office for the good of Bermuda? Simply unheard of. Instead of championing a fair and cost-effective system government-wide, the TC hired a third party to collect only taxes (less commission) due that office.

    An ambitious reporter would obtain a list of offenders, the number of tickets, amount owed, etc, and then compare names with government officials. Start at the Attorney General’s office. Just saying as “A” is the first letter of the alphabet.

    How does one distinguish between these tickets and the ones that were recently publicized as being invalid ?

    Can we please get relief on the parking tickets like the Government gives to big corporations and businesses on payroll tax. My excuse is Im broke like they are! Cant afford to pay City of Hamilton for parking in bays on street!! That would be wonderful since its hell to find parking anyway in Hamilton. And that monstrosity outside dining platform on Burnaby hill jutting out in the road takes up at least 3 to 4 parking bays and is an eyesore on a busy street. Give back these parking bays as a start and extend parking from 1 hr to 2 hours on the streets.
