    I HAVE PATIENTLY waited for 5 parking tickets to fall of my credit report. Tickets from 1993,1994,1995, i have only 12 months to go and today i get a letter from the City saying they will get a judgement if i dont pay now. So this will stay on another seven years??? So this is a total of 14 years. Is this legal? HELP !!!!

    RE: pay them!!!

    I don't know about your state, but in georgia, failure to pay a ticket = suspended license, and a warrant issued on you.

    i know how it feels.

    I had several unpaid san diego tickets from 1991. I spoke to a lawyer--he said their are statue limitations and procedure imposed on the city. However, to prevent wage garnishment the cost of lawyer and court fees would be more than the money owed on the tickets. The city eventually garnered my wages in 1998. Even though now paid, the negative mark still remains on my file. I'm still choosing between jack shroud, lexington, and junum to clean my file.

    And San Diego parking tickets are expensive!!

    On vacation and 15 minutes late to a meter = $25 in the gas lamp quarter.

    Where are the old $2 parking tickets from my college???

    you are 100% right. City fines and tickets are NOT CREDIT. Credit is when you are loaned something.Either money or merchandise.
    My credit report has been trashed for the the last 7 years because of the city of san diego. My 5 parking tickets started of at $300. Because i was a broke student i had no money i didnt pay. Now they have added interest,and fees, so i owe them $1024.00

    This is the city reporting the tickets. What do you mean by challenging the line on your credit report? Does this mean tell the bureau's i've never had a credit line with them?

    Like matt, i didn't have money at the time--the amount seemed so much at the time. I jsut goofed off........then had my wages garnered.....at least they worked to get the my money.
