I was fined for parking in my driveway – I can pay but I’m fighting the ‘powertrip’ rather than leave car in garage

Authorities have deeply angered a car owner when he woke up to find a notice of his vehicle parked outside his home.

The Canada-based TikTok creator posted an angry PSA on the app to the city of Brampton, Ontario, sharing his dilemma with his over 3,000 followers.

In the video, Alex Haj (@realalexhaj) emphasized that he was “angry” about the undeserved traffic ticket situation.

He had on-screen text above the TikTok reading: “City of Brampton, Ontario, [you’re] wrong for it.”

“I’m fuming right now,” the man explained in the clip.

“I woke up because I found this parking ticket for my own car sitting in my damn driveway.”

He explained that everyone in his neighborhood got tickets.

“Apparently I can’t park in your driveway,” Haj explained.

“What? Just because it sticks out a bit? Come on, man.”

To him, it felt like the ticket seller was on a power trip.

“Whoever this guy is,” the driver began.

“See you in court, buddy.”

The video has been viewed more than 12,000 times.

“When I lived in Brampton, I once got two tickets in the same night,” one person shared in the comments.

“One around midnight and another three hours later.”

In a follow-up TikTok about the ticket sales situation, Haj said he was not upset about the ticket fee.

“My point is that I can just park on my damn driveway,” he explained.

The homeowner also revealed that he kept some exercise equipment in his garage, although he explained that there was room for his car there.

“I don’t always put the car in there,” he added.

“Sometimes I just want to leave it out.”

The TikToker even took to the street and revealed that the street behind his driveway is what he described as “a little street just for people’s garages.”

He added on-screen text to his clip asking, “Who’s wrong with this?” Me, the City of Brampton, the home builder?”

Haj showed viewers that there was no sidewalk separating his driveway from the street.

“You can’t park on the sidewalk here,” he explained.

“Why can’t I park there?”

The homeowner also emphasized that the driveways to him and his neighbors are shorter than driveways to other homes in his neighborhood.
