“In theory, yes, your daughter is the responsible party and should pay for the parking ticket. However, parking tickets are issued under the name of the registered owner of the car, not the driver.
Since parking tickets
are usually issued when the car is parked and unoccupied, the officer only has the name on the registration to go by. If the ticket does not get paid, any extra fees or penalties will be under your name, not your daughter’s.
Don’t worry; a parking ticket won’t
impact the rate of your car insurance
. That said, unpaid fees, speeding tickets, or running through a red light can affect your rates. In this case, it may be best to handle the ticket yourself and have your daughter reimburse you.
