New mother imposed a fine of $ 112 by parking attendant after her ticket expired while she went through the delivery
A young mother who had been working for more than 20 hours was told that giving birth was not a good reason not to move her car.
Jess Brooks, 33, parked her car in her mother's home in Newtown, in the interior of Sydney, before going to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for a planned induced labor.
The water of Mrs. Brooks broke on October 21 at 6 o'clock, so she and her partner believed that the baby would be born that day.

The couple paid a visitors parking card for 24 hours and rushed to the hospital to bring the newborn, The Sunday Telegraph reported.
Because of complications, the delivery of Mrs. Brooks went slouchy for 21 hours and she gave birth at 3 am the next day.
& # 39; We are only at 8 am & # 39; Early in the morning, so we were both awake for 30 hours and forgotten, "Brooks said.
& # 39; By the time we remembered the car it was just after noon and it was too late, the fine was spent at 11.56 pm. & # 39;
In an effort to avoid a fine, Mrs Brooks' mother left a note on the windshield stating that Brooks and her partner had the car keys in the hospital.
Because she could not get in the car, she could not put a new parking ticket in the car, and the expired card was still on the dashboard.

The 33-year-old called the fine with a written letter, even with the birth certificate, but the Revenue NSW said it was not enough.
Revenues NSW said the $ 112 parking fine was fully justified because the & # 39; restrictions were clearly marked & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I was shocked that labor was not considered a legitimate reason for leniency, & # 39; said Brooks.
Inquiries from The Sunday Telegraph successfully rescind the fine and NSW Revenue even apologized to Mrs Brooks.
