    Everything about parking tickets in Toronto is a cash grab. With huge quotas the parking enforcement officers will pass by the odd single car blocking main streets to go for expired meter violations where there will probably be several expired meters. Don’t blame the parking enforcement officers, blame the city of Toronto. Municipal governments are inherentley corrupt. Forget innocent until proven guilty. Toronto has steadily and persistently made it more difficult over the recent years to fight parking tickets. The City of Toronto cancelled night court, made it mandatory to apply in person for a court date, and generally do everything possible to get people to pay the ticket rather that fight it. Once again small businesses are paying for mismanagement by city bureaucrats.
