Dear PoPville – DMV Says I Failed to Pay a Ticket that I Paid – Anyway to Fix Online?

“Dear PoPville,

The DMV did a “relocation tow” on my car last month, and upon retrieving it (from literally around the corner) I immediately paid the $100 fine online and didn’t think anything of it until I got a Notice of Unsatisfied Parking Tickets in the mail last week. It claimed that I had failed to pay my ticket within 30 days and that I now owe the city $200. I went back to my credit card statement and found the proof that I did indeed pay the initial ticket the same day as the tow. My current problem is that I can’t reach a human being at the DMV or 311 or anywhere else to tell them they screwed up and I should not be penalized for their mistake. Will I have to drag myself to a DMV location in person to show this to someone, or is there any other option??”
