Ticket #1, issued by Toledo Police on our vehicle parked in front of our house for being more than 12" from curb. We measured, it was exactly 12". The ticket was on our window. Did not pay it. A couple of weeks later, received a notice in the mail (from somewhere in Cleveland that handles the payments) that since it was not paid, they are tacking on an additional $10. Still haven't paid it. Since I have never had a parking ticket before, not sure what kind of problems I am setting us up for. Since I haven't heard anything else I am optimistically hoping that it has "gone away"...(but probably not...).
Ticket #2, issued to my brother on Cherry St. in front of Cherry school the other morning, for driving over 20 mph in a school zone. It was about 8:10 in the morning, there were no kids present and the flashing school zone light was NOT flashing. That sign says "20 mph during restricted hours". Brother researched this and apparently each school can make their own "restricted hours". When brother commented to the officer that the lights were not flashing he was told it didn't matter. On the ticket there is a spot to write in the date and time, and the time was left blank. Does this make the ticket invalid?
