A senior was given until the end of June to pay more than $3,000 in parking fines.
Suzette Gowrie, 76, told magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo that she could pay $3,000 of the total when she appeared in court this week.
The woman from Devonshire pleaded guilty to a slew of parking violations last December, but claimed to suffer from a medical condition that makes it hard to walk more than two blocks.
After failing to provide the court with a signed doctor’s note verifying the condition, she was ordered to start paying the fines in February.
Mr Tokunbo ordered the woman to pay $3,000 today and gave her until June 30 to pay the balance.
