Sigh



Well, well, well... Mr. Fireman.

I got a ticket a while back, right across the street from you. The ticket said "parked in front of a fire hydrant" but I was actually parked after hours in a loading zone...

A loading zone that happened to have a fire hydrant in it.

After 6:00p.m. you can park there. I often wondered what would happen if there was a fire but it seems that I am the only one who ever got a ticket there.

It isn't even listed as an offense on the ticket, and I have no idea how much it is anyway.

Mr. Fireman, you cannot claim to be inspecting the hydrant, you were no where to be found.

I am SO not paying that ticket now!

I've ranted about the injustice of parking tickets before and refused to pay them. Of course, that would be why just this morniing I had to pay $135 in fines to get my plates renewed after they were suspended for failure to pay.

I'm knocking on my head as I write this (wood you know), but although I've had a few speeding tickets, I've never had a parking ticket.

(Watch me get one tomorrow)

I would so fight that ticket. Something like that happened to my husband. They didn't have a sign and the yellow faded to almost the color of white in a spot he parked on. He paid the ticket (he didn't want to waste a day of work) but they had a bunch of people who got the same ticket. Get this...the next week a sign was put up and they repainted the curb. Guess some people did fight it.

I hate how towns feel the need to get one over on you. Grrrr.
