A DRIVER has shared a trick on social media to avoid parking tickets, but not everyone is convinced that it works.
The video was uploaded to TikTok by @hustla.official and has hit thousands of views in just one day.
The car owner shows how he puts an old ticket on his car to avoid being fined again when parking illegally.
He then says that the trick has worked several times for him.
He believes this technique will confuse the traffic warden – but some TikTok users think otherwise.
One person said: "I tried that but, still got a fine."
