Just the Ticket for Fines

April 13, 1999|BOOTH MOORE

It happens to the best of us. You're already having a bad day, perhaps even running late, when you rush out to your car and there's a(nother) ticket on the windshield! Disgusted, you rip it out from under the wiper blades and throw it into the abyss of a briefcase or purse. The next time you are reminded of the ticket is weeks later when you receive warning of a delinquent parking violation fine in the mail.

There is one way to make parking tickets disappear. Call the Parking Information Line, an 800 number that lets users pay their tickets over the phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Just enter your violation and credit card numbers using the phone keypad and the voice-activated service does the rest. Visa and MasterCard accepted.

Call (800) 464-1333.

For the Record
