Parking is Atrocious

Step out of my car on a Sunday morning at the beach to use the bathroom. Came back two minutes later and had $20.00 dollar parking ticket (obvoius who ever gave me the ticket was probably all of 50 feet from. I'm from out of state so I paid the ticket within 12 days. Just received in the mail a letter stating that I owe another $55.00 dollar for a late fee. Was to pay the ticket in 3 DAYS!!! CASH in an envolpe is acceptable??? Never heard you need to pay tickets in 3 DAYS!!!! City must be strappt for cash. I will never step foot on Lewes, DE again. They obviously know how miss treat tourist who want to spend money in there city. Was actually thinking of moving to Lewes, but no longer is on my list.
