Well, I got a parking ticket in a bright green envelope this afternoon. I've been parking in a metered spot on the street, but last month, someone installed a shrouded meter money taker half way down the block, so I assumed that as it was covered, I didn't have to dump quarters into the individual meters any more.
WRONG. $30 ticket. I photographed the newly installed shrouded meter and the lack of signage telling us to keep those quarters cycling into the old meters. I am going to traffic court with photos and see if I can talk my way out of paying this fee. I had no idea I was making a wrong assumption as I looked at that shroud.
