We never mind paying the $35US annual pass in Washington State because we *know* the money goes into trail maintenance.

Has anyone actually received a ticket for not paying the parking fee? I always pay for parking but I see allot of people who don't pay at the parks and I've never seen anyone issuing tickets.

Several people put their money in first to find out the machine was out of paper lol.
Yeah, that's pretty funny Ace. <insert rolling eyes here>

I guess it never occured to you that you could be helping someone out by putting a note on the machine while you were putting one on the dash of your car?

The $25 pass seems like the way to go.

or you could just plug the meter for $9 worth, if you're really against the pass. I'm sure they would figure it out.

3 x 1 day passes = 3 days. Pretty straight forward. Put the three passes on your dash and the PFO will figure it out.

I see Exy posted as me. You guys who whine about multi-day parking should just buck up and buy a freakin' annual pass already.

A wad of chewing gum in the coin slot and a note on your dashboard saying the machine's broke is the cheapest route.

I can hardly believe what people will do in order not to pay a user fee. If we all take responsibility things would be so much better.

No disrespect to you prother, I'm sure you'd never do that!

Those machines have simple to follow instructions do they not?
1) Bring hacksaw
2) Remove machine
When I was up at Rubble Creek last summer, I seem to remember a sign next to the machine saying that it was under video surveillance. Highly doubtful, but I did look into the trees to see if I could spot something :P

Alright, another reason to spring the 25.00 for an annual pass. Any would-be thief who sees the annual pass has no way of knowing when you parked or when you'll return.
A day or hourly pass tells people when you got there and when you'll return by. series of one day passes would tell a thief that you wont be back for sometime.

This is not a case when someone doesn't want to pay. This is a case when they don't leave you the option to pay.

That logic might work, but it is all in the mercy of PFO. Buying 3x1 day passes or buying annual passes is not the answer to my question, if you know what I mean.

A: Under section 23(1) of the Park and Recreation Area Regulation and the Violation Ticket Administration and Fines Regulation, violators may be fined $58.00 for non-payment of vehicle parking fees and for other illegal parking. A vehicle may be towed away at the vehicle owner's expense and without any warning if the vehicle is parked:

a) without payment of the vehicle parking fee,
b) other than in designated parking areas,
c) on the traveled portion of park roads,
d) in a manner which impedes the proper use of a park road,
e) in a manner which damages vegetation, or
f) in a manner which restricts or inhibits recreational use of the park.



Here's the info you requested Arnold:

It's true, better to just buy the pass for $25/yr.
