I am a great fan of Kamloops and seem to go there at least once a month to either shop or visit family.
This summer I had surgery and had to visit my specialist about once a month.
On Oct. 3, my daughter joined me for the trip. She has friends at TRU and decided to go and visit while I stayed at my in-laws.
She was parked in the Upper College Heights lot, which is on the parking stub along with the date and time it expired. However, she was given a parking ticket because the stub was facing down, or so we think.
My complaint is how can you charge someone for something that is void if displayed incorrectly?
I feel that it is a void product being sold and don’t understand how that is legal. I know it is not so hard to put the stub on the dash the way that Impark wants but how easy is it to slide or flip and then you have a rather large fine.
I have a letter and the receipt and stub which I mailed to the City of Kamloops and Impark, in Vancouver, by the way.
I’m sure that my daughter is not the only one to be burned by this, but I think the information could be on both sides of the stub to stop these quite expensive errors. It’s a $65 fine if not paid within seven days (pretty big for something that was paid for and displayed in a clean dash).
