wait parking tickets? for real?

Postby zoomzoom88 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 1:04 pm

My college has awful parking situations and my friends and I constantly get tickets. For example, I even got a ticket saturday for parking on the grass of my rental home even though I had my landlord's permission. Apparently parking on grass is a code violation. Even this needs to be disclosed? My C and F addendum is going to be so long! I have had over 10 parking tickets. Each on needs an explanation?

Just be honest and it won't hurt you.

You should be able to fit all 10 on one page. They don't need "explanation." Just say:

On [date], I was cited for [infraction] by [law enforcement agency] in [city, state]. I [paid a fine of $X/appeared in traffic court/attended driver's safety school/etc].

If you don't know exact dates but made a good faith effort to find out (requested your record), just say that and approximate.

Where are you applying that requests parking tickets?
