Void parking tickets

Editor: I took my children to watch the May Day Parade in Fort Langley on Monday. We wanted to have a fun day out in our community.

As we walked back to our car, we noticed tickets on windshields. Dozens and dozens of cars had been given parking tickets, including us. We were charged $50 for not noticing the sign half a block down the street — on a holiday.

I am absolutely disgusted and furious. Judging from the comments of people around us, I am not the only one who feels this way. This is how “our” town treats us? We sat through 15 minutes of a police motorcycle demonstration — not one police officer cracked a smile or waved the whole time.

All those tickets are the icing on the cake. No wonder the police have such little community support. This was nothing but a cheap cash grab. All the tickets issued in Fort Langley on Monday should be void.

On my parking ticket was my full name, address and date of birth. This was left on my windshield. Can you say identity theft? Can you say privacy laws?
