I forgot to mention this last week but on Friday, I got a $42 parking ticket! I was outraged considering: I paid the meter more than I needed to just to be sure, I've parking in this spot every week for almost a year and other cars in the same parking lane were not ticketed. They're claiming I was parking in a truck zone for longer than 30 minutes and good thing I came out to my car when I did because they were going to tow me! Why would they have a parking meter that says, "1 quarter/hour up to 12 hours" in an area where you can't be there more than a 1/2 hour?
The thing is, I don't have time to go down to the court house and argue this when my days go from 8am-6 or 9pm and I work on the weekends but I also don't have an extra $42 at the moment. Does this constitute as an emergency? What's the best idea? I need some help!
