SLAPEC has received numerous letters from people who confronted a Parking Enforcement officer in the midst of writing a citation, reasoned with the officer, and the officer tore up the ticket. These people later received a delinquent notice with a larger fine. The officer didn't tear up his copy or wrote a new one after the driver left.
The officer might tear up YOUR copy, but then turn in HIS copy, and you get a delinquent notice and a larger fine. Or he might just write you a new one later. It means nothing if an officer tears up your copy - any driver can tear up his own ticket.

If the officer refuses to do this, it is because he has no real intention of tearing up his copy. You will get a delinquent citation anyway and it will cost you more. You are better off fighting the original citation than a delinquent citation later. You will get the citation either way.
Remember, there is no honor among thieves.
Only by standing together and demanding reform will the illegal actions of Los Angeles Parking Enforcement end.
