Nothing like this has EVER happened to me before! I got a parking ticket for $25 at a city park. Honestly, I didn’t even look at the signs, but when I found the ticket I saw that the sign made it look like I was in a valid parking place. I didn’t keep a copy of the appeal letter I sent in instead of a check-- which is nice because I get to remember it as being persuasive in the extreme-- but it must have worked because they called me this morning to say that they would change the sign and that I didn’t have to pay the ticket.
I’ve joined the ranks of those who have beaten city hall! (In a way.)
