Parking ticket tales can be scary, entertaining, maddening, and educational
One thing is for sure, if a large enough group of people develop parking ticket pain, creative entrepreneurs will devise a solution and market it. Have you ever suffered the slings and arrows of a camera ticket? These are the missives we receive in the mail from Johnny Law containing a photograph of our chariot’s bad behavior. Camera tickets have become so popular that you can get one (or more) from just about anywhere in the U.S. of A.
Here’s a video offering some innovative solutions to this parking ticket or traffic ticket pain.
How do you feel about the NYC Bike Share Program taking up valuable curb space?
How many parking spaces have been eliminated by the NYC Bike Share Program sponsored by Citi Bank? Beaucoup!
Here is an innovative solution to the driving public’s pain caused by the loss of curb space for their cars.
Things that make me shriek
Have you ever stumbled upon an empty parking space that challenges your parallel parking skill? Of course, you have. We all have.
Do you give it the “old college try?” or keep driving? (Believe it or not, you may be issued an NYC parking ticket when you pull up alongside a vehicle parked at the curb to begin the parallel parking process).
Here’s a super educational video that shows you what your Mom and Dad never taught you…How to parallel park your car.
A “one of a kind” comment posted to Larry’s Blog
One of the things that make my pot boil over is the ill-conceived and selfish behavior of saving parking spaces in the neighborhood. You don’t own the curb space in front of your home. It’s not a dumping ground for garbage cans, or your second car to reserve a parking space when you return home.
Here’s one of the best comments ever from a wonderful visit to Larry’s Blog:
An old man on my block ‘saves’ the spot in front of his house every time he leaves by putting his garbage cans on the street. He also has a second car that is never driven but just used to hold spots for him (taking up 2 spaces). This is every day.
When I first moved here I was in the middle of parking behind him (he was sitting in his car) and he started screaming at me and backed up so I couldn’t finish my parking job. I was confused so I just went and found another spot. I didn’t know what his deal was then; now I do. He’s a dick.”
I showed you mine…Now it’s your turn. How about sharing some parking ticket tales with us? We’d love to hear from you.
