Paying fine easier than disputing parking ticket
Editor: I wish to assure Bruce Jamieson (The Times, Aug. 29) he is not the only one ticketed for parking in Langley City, where hanging flower baskets have obscured or hindered the sight line of traffic control signs.
I was ticketed in July for the same reason, however unlike Mr. Jamieson I paid the $25 fine.
Prior to paying, I phoned the Bylaw Control Officer to discuss the issue of the City hanging flower baskets in front of traffic control signs. I encountered a typical bureaucratic response along with an indication of what was required to file a dispute.
For $25, I quickly concluded it wasn’t worth the effort.
Apparently, the City does not recognize vehicular and pedestrian traffic precludes a driver from giving priority to sorting out flower pots from parking signs.
With no effort on my part, I can do business and shop outside of Langley City where customer parking is provided.
