I wanted to give you the heads up about parking tickets and infractions in our little neighborhood.
My fiance and I live on 43rd & Stone, have 2 cars, and always park on the street. Because we both work downtown, we either carpool or take public transportation. This past week we noticed a few orange stickers on the windshields of cars parked in that area. On Thursday, my fiance’s car (and the one we drive less frequently) had one of these orange stickers on the windshield and a parking ticket (for $39) placed on the dash.
Turns out there is a city statute that prevents cars for being parked in one location for more than 72 hours.
Needless to say we are doing what we can to have the fine reduced, but isn’t it ridiculous to require people to drive their cars a set number of times a week? Besides, we were parked in front of our place!
Anyways, a few other cars have similar stickers as of this morning and we thought people should know that taking the bus is only okay every other day. Otherwise, drive that tank to work!
This surprised us. We knew about the 72 hours law, but we’ve only ever heard of it being enforced when someone complains, or if street sweeping or construction requires a move.
