I got my first parking ticket the other day downtown Durham in an area that has always allowed parking (Rigsbee & Corporation (400 block) across from parking lot Republic is building?) Durham City has contracted with Republic to do the ticketing, I guess. Too bad, since the parking deck is not built yet but they are closing down visitors' ability to park in areas that have always been accessible. So be careful down there. I did not see clear signage about no parking. Curbs were not painted red etc. Seems like we have no recourse, must be wary about downtown now and it might have a chilling effect on people visiting there. I'm not sure why a City would contract out the ticketing system. Sounds like those red light traps other cities have set up with contractors, later to be called out on. Love Durham and would hate to think this is happening.

Did you park in a no-parking zone or just get a ticket for not paying for parking?

I'm not that familiar with the area, can you give more specifics on where you were parked?

Thanks. Parked on street.There is no parking lot in that area. No immediate indications of no parking signs except way down the street, which usually means no parking from that point on, and I was not down there.

If I understand where you are talking about, that is an area that has always allowed parking on the street. Thanks for the heads up, I will have to make sure I mention that to people.

You are right. Parking in the rigsbee area is difficult.
