Residents of the GTA appear to be getting creative in their attempts to evade Toronto parking tickets.

A Toronto Parking Enforcement Officer took to Twitter on Tuesday, August 18, to expose an apparently well-used strategy: putting outdated tickets on your dashboard to avoid getting a new one.

The ticket also had an address that didn't correspond to where the car was parked.

The officer had seen this trick before, however, and issued the trickster a $100-fine. "I know this game," she wrote, also suggesting that it happens pretty often around the city.

That sure is sneaky, Toronto, but just not sneaky enough.
