5) I received a letter about a Parking Ticket issued to my car,
but MY CAR DID NOT RECEIVE THAT PARKING TICKET! What should I do?
A Parking Ticket is issued to a vehicle license plate (tag) since
the vehicle driver is usually not present when the Parking Ticket
is written. Normally the driver is the owner of the vehicle, and
normally the person who receives a Parking Ticket, whether it be
the vehicle owner or not, will pay the Parking Ticket.
When a Parking Ticket goes unpaid, the Court will send a letter
about the unpaid Parking Ticket to the vehicle owner. If the vehicle
owner was the driver when the ticket was issued, the letter will
serve as more of a reminder. However, when the vehicle had been
"loaned-out", the registered owner is still considered responsible
for any Parking Tickets, so the matter becomes more of a personal
issue between the vehicle owner and whom-ever was using the vehicle
at the time.
BUT, IF YOU/YOUR VEHICLE HAVE NOT BEEN IN KNOXVILLE TO RECEIVE
A PARKING TICKET, and/or the vehicle described in the letter is
not even remotely close in description to yours, then there may
be an error due to the State issuing your tag # more than once.
If you believe that may have happened to you, send an email to
this Court at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following information:
Your Full Name (as it appears on your Driver License)
Address, City, State, Zip
Vehicle License Plate # (your tag #)
Your Driver License #
Your Date of Birth
Parking Ticket # (Listed on the letter you received from the Court.)
