VANCOUVER - A New Westminster, B.C., man who paid $1,500 in legal fees to fight a $105 parking ticket said he was making a point because now the municipality won’t pay for the cost of arguing his case.
Vic Bryant said he challenged his son’s parking violation through the city’s adjudication service last year.
The vehicle was ticketed at Royal Avenue and 10th Street as it was deemed too close to a driveway. There were, however, no signs indicating illegal parking.
After challenging the ticket, the elder Bryant was told six days in advance to appear at city hall for adjudication or be found guilty in absence.
