According to public prosecution records, the parking offender confessed to typing the ticket and printing it on his own, copying the official one issued by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
He went ahead to wrap the forged ticket with a transparent sticker and then placed it on his car, he confessed during interrogation.
