Michigan woman pays off parking ticket from 1976

Police in this Upper Peninsula town had forgotten about the $1 parking ticket written on Sept. 1, 1976. But the woman who had found it on her windshield hadn’t.

 

The ticket, a $20 bill and a note arrived at police headquarters last month in a plain white envelope with no return address.

 

The note read: "I always had good intentions of paying it. I put it aside and every once in a while I would come across it and said ‘someday I’m going to pay it.’ Now I think it’s time."

 

The fine for an unpaid meter violation increased to $5 after 72 hours, said Police Chief David Outinen, but it hadn’t increased beyond that. He told The Daily Mining Gazette of Houghton that he couldn’t remember someone making good on an unpaid ticket after so much time.

 

The woman apparently hopes her payment closes the matter. "Please don’t try and track me down. I am a respectable lady," she wrote.
