I’ve NEVER been able to talk my way out of a parking ticket and the parking cops don’t even seem like they’re listening when I try.

But according to a new survey, about one out of 12 people say they’ve successfully gotten out of a parking ticket even when they KNEW they were wrong. That’s about 8% talking their way out of tickets, which is surprisingly high.

Here are the top five excuses people have given that worked…

#1.) The parking rules weren’t clear.

#2.)  I was only gone for a second.

#3.)  I was looking for change for a meter, or a place to buy a ticket for the lot.

#4.)  I had a personal emergency.

#5.)  I had a parking pass but lost it.

The survey also found that 14% of people paid up to $162 in parking tickets last year.
