Woman 'alters Mawaqif ticket to avoid paying for parking'

The woman allegedly altered the ticket to read June 16 so she could reuse it

A woman altered her parking ticket to reuse it the following day, Dubai Criminal Court was told on Sunday.

On June 16 2016, the 25-year-old German woman parked her car in Al Qusais and presented a ticket she had purchased a day before on her dashboard. The woman had changed the date from June 15 to June 16.

“I was checking the tickets in the cars in Al Nahda area in Al Qusais when I noticed a difference in time and price on the defendant’s ticket,” said a Roads and Transports Authority inspector.

The Jordanian inspector said that when he looked closely at the ticket he noticed that a line had been added by hand to the ticket.

The inspector called police who summoned the woman for questioning when she allegedly admitted to altering the ticket to avoid paying for parking.

On Sunday, the woman failed to show up in court to face charges of forgery and use of forged documents.

The next hearing is scheduled for March 11 to summon the woman to court.
