A British woman was surprised to find that she was issued a ticket even though she paid at the meter.
Josh Woodley, 40, received the fine in Abbey Wood, South East London, despite having paid £3.80 (about $6.20) for her parking spot via text.
When Woodley opened the ticket she was shocked to find a fine in the amount of £0.00.
She thought it must have been a mistake and ignored it.
However, two weeks later she received a letter in the mail, demanding that she pay the fee.
The letter from Bexley Council stated that she must pay her £0.00 fine within 28 days or face court fines.
“There’s a part of me that wanted to send them a check for £0.00 but I did not want to waste a stamp,” Woodley said.
A council spokesman said that the two notices were issued by mistake and the “fine” has been canceled.
