    then you are wrong. I got mine parking the bike in front of the Kamalig restaurant, near one of these rusty "no parking"-signs which everyone seems to ignore. at least, the penalty was 50 pesos, which is affordable, but I sent my gf to the office, guess they see my white nose I have to pay more. happy I got no penalty for wearing sleeveless shirt and slippers :-) DSCF3991.JPG DSCF3994.JPG

    If the LTO was motivated enough they could make a small fortune writing parking tickets (even at just P50 a pop). An LTO officer could probably write a 5-10 tickets each city block....and then once they've walked a couple blocks they could turn around and do it all over again. They'd run out of tickets to issue out before they ran out of people illegally parking. :wink:

    the ticket has the number 208243, so I was not the first one they catched - I was just a bit surprised cz our table was next to the bike, and I saw nobody write out the ticket, maybe they have camouflage or a magic hat; so you are warned :-) and never ride with slippers or t-shirt in future ...maybe just 3 times and you get deportation custody, who knows ...:biggrin:

    A pet peeve is people that angle park in the wrong direction and they usually take up at least 2-3 parking spaces in doing so.
    I can only hope they get tickets some day soon.

    I'm sure it wasn't the first one they issued but I highly doubt they have issued 208k+ traffic citations. Maybe if they started counting from the first one ever issued in Dumaguete. :wink:

    Remember way back when checking accounts came with paper things called checks instead of an ATM card? Used to be merchants wouldn't accept a check number lower than 500 or 1000 or whatever. So, when I opened a new account I always ordered replacement checks starting at 1250 to show it was a 'seasoned' account.

    I'm sure by now you figured out the moral of the story?

    They must have ordered tickets starting at 208240 :roflmao:

    I don't think the police have the responsibility (at least not their primary responsibility) of issuing traffic tickets here. That falls on the LTO. I have received a ticket from the LTO for driving a motorcycle with an expired registration. I think I might have received another for not wearing a helmet/pants/shoes but that was so long ago I can't remember if it was a verbal warning or an actual ticket.
