The Argo star parked in Santa Monica to take a stroll with one of his daughters, but when he returned to his vehicle, he discovered he had been issued with a ticket, according to TMZ.com.
Affleck was spotted looking grim faced as he returned to his car to find the citation.
It is the second time in as many months the star has faced parking issues - he drove into a stationary car in California and knocked the wing mirror off in October (12).
He left a grovelling note to the owner, stating, "Hi, Knocked off your mirror! Very sorry! Will cover everything - Ben".
