“Dear PoPville,

I received a parking ticket back in September and since I was absolutely at fault paid it without delay. I had pneumonia, but had to go to UPS at 6th and Penn SE. I pulled into the loading zone and left the car there with my flashers on since i thought I was just running in and dropping the package. Long story short, there was one person in front of me and it took 10 minutes to drop the package. I came out to a ticket, which I deserved.

Anyway, I just got my insurance renewal quote and its double what it was last year. When I inquired they told me that my ticket had been classified as a “moving violation.” I tried searching the ticket number on the DMV’s website in the “moving violations” look up on the website and it said it didn’t exist, and when I typed the ticket number into “parking violations” it confirmed the ticket was for that.

I’m basically wondering if anyone knows if I WAS guilty of a moving violation, and if not, what I can do to have that changed with the DMV since its impacting my insurance and driving record.”
