how pissed off would you be?

I had to run an errand today which resulted in me needing to park in a public parking lot that was 'pay to park.' It was $1.00 minimum for an hour. Whatever.

So I put my $1.00 in the automated machine and was away for 10 minutes. Came back. Parking ticket. I thought, "what the ****?"

Violation: $30 ticket for 'head on parking' only. It was a half vacant lot so I pulled through one spot to park 'backed in' style in the spot across from it. I didn't take up more than 1 spot and parked perfectly, and saw NO posting about warnings for this type of parking. It's such a common type of parking. I'm sure it was posted somewhere in fine print but...

I was appalled. THIRTY ****ing dollars...for 10 minutes in a spot I PAID FOR.

How can they justify that?

I don't really want to go appear in court over $30...but what a ****ing ridiculous ticket.

Violation: Head in Parking Only

looking at this ****ing thing makes me want to punch something

every night we get a campus alert of a girl getting r'd or a defenseless dude getting 'polar bear'd' but they are going to bleed respectful, tax paying, productive members of society $30 because they backed into a spot and paid for said spot in a 50% vacant lot.

In Houston there is a special court for parking tickets and if you go in there they usually waive the ticket because no one usually does.

I know, and I realize that if I actually showed up and fought this the judge would throw it out in 2 seconds but I am busy and work a lot of hours, especially during the day. This is just a huge hassle for me.

I disputed the ticket online but like I said, I'm sure in this city lot their is fine print somewhere stating 'head in parking only'...

It's Illinois, they need every dime they can get. It's just sickening.

Is it a city lot? Or a privately run lot? If its a city lot make them show you the statute. If its a private lot tell them to pound sand.

and if I parked like an asshole fine...that's one thing

but all I did this morning was look at this lot, pull in, see that it was 50% empty...so instead of parking next to someone and dealing with door dings I just pulled up to the adjacent spot with no one on either side of my car...

when I came back to my car I started it up and saw an orange ticket in my windshield and thought to myself "did I enter the wrong spot # in the machine?"

then I looked at it and saw $30 and I was like "holy God" and then I scrolled down to the reasoning and saw "head in parking only" and immediately saw red.

like I said

fine. Apparently I broke a rule I didn't know existed. Fine me the standard $10 for not putting money in the meter.

I just find it grossly appalling that I PAID THE METER and received a parking ticket for 3 X the amount of the broke assholes that don't even bother paying the meter.
