A woman has revealed how she was given a parking fine despite leaving a note on her car explaining that she was rushing to hospital.
Susie Best received the ticket after leaving her silver Mercedes in the Raglan Street car park, in Mosman, an affluent suburb in Sydney’s north.
She shared a photo of the hand-written note and the offending ticket to a local Facebook page.
‘Not too impressed with our usually wonderful Parking Offers,’ she wrote.

‘Please do not book me. Gone to RNS (Royal North Shore) emergency,’ her note read.
She also along with a selfie of herself in a mask at the hospital and a photo of the waiting room.
A number of locals were sympathetic to her plight, urging her to provide a medical certificate to the authorities to appeal the fine.
‘This has happened to me before, with proof of a medical emergency afterwards they will cancel the ticket,’ a woman wrote.
Ms Best also shared a picture of herself inside the hospital after leaving her car
‘Same happened to my family… Even with proof of ambulance paperwork etc still wouldn’t rescind – very ruthless rangers and heartless,’ another wrote.
But some were convinced she deserved the parking fine.
‘You’ve had time to put a note on a car 6+km’s away from emergency and then found another form of transport to get to the hospital to sit patiently at the back of triage,’ a third person wrote.
‘You can’t realistically believe you won’t be fined.’
