Parking Tickets in Arlington

While our 2018 Toyota Sienna LE is still at the dealer shop, I have been driving a loaner car to work. Instead of parking in the garage, I parked on the street using the ParkMobile app.

Yesterday on my way to work, I needed to take a shit so bad that I didn’t complete the payment on my phone. I got a parking ticket for $40. I paid online to get it over with. My bad.

Today, I made sure I paid correctly in the morning before I went to my office. When I walked to my car for lunch, an officer had already put a ticket on my windshield. I tried to show her my app, which was still on the clock for another 15 minutes, but she didn’t give a fuck.

After checking the citation and my app, the license letters and numbers didn’t match. They were wrong the whole time. I suspected they were autocorrected when I entered the letters and numbers, but I didn’t double check. I submitted the ParkMobile receipt and the citation, but the Public Safety Support Supervisor didn’t dismiss the ticket. The license letters and numbers didn’t match. He didn’t give a fuck about my error.

I am not going to court for it. I’ll just pay another $40. Life is just a bitch sometimes. I just have to suck it up and pay for my mistakes.
