Parking ticket test drive
It’s Sunday at 6 p.m when Joe stumbled upon his first vacant parking space. Joe was going to have dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, and expect to be dinning for about 3 hours. Can Joe park in a space regulated by the “…8A-7P sign?
You finish dinner, return to your car, drive a couple of blocks to a friends apartment to drop off some papers at a friends apartment. You’re going to be in and out in a flash…Five minutes at the most. You have a difficult time finding a free parking space, and spot one regulated by the red “No standing anytime” sign. You call your friend and ask him to wait for you in the lobby. When you finish parking, you run in, hand your friend the papers, and run right back to your car. Will you find a parking ticket on on the windshield?
The next day, Monday, you’re off to work. When you arrive at work at 10 A.M., you see an empty parking space regulated by the three headed monster “new sign.” Is it safe to park there?
Work is over for the day at 7 P.M. You return to your passenger car, and drive to a friends apartment. As luck would have it, you find a vacant parking space regulated by a “3 hour metered…Commercial Vehicle” sign. Can you park here safely?
