Yellow Lines Painted Under Parked Car To Give A Ticket

You manage to find that perfect parking spot, the road completely unmarked, no signs around anywhere. You happily jump out of your car, glowing with the smug self-satisfaction that can only come from getting one over on City Hall.

Of course, if you’re Nasser Khan, your triumph is short-lived because while you’re away, City Hall cheats. In Khan’s case, a bunch of workmen came along and hand painted a “no parking” marker underneath his car, all while a meter maid stood by, just twitching to write out the ticket.

Not only was he nailed with a ticket, but the vehicle that paints those lines on the road actually destroyed his car’s tires by painting them up to his bumper. Khan ended up getting the ticket revoked, but City Hall isn’t budging on the tires.

  1. doesn’t matter what city, state, or country, the only purpose for the existence of parking enforcement departments is to leech off of people. they want to provode parking for as many people as possible? fine. fire the curb nazis and build some f**king garages.

    Sue the hell out of them, I know I would, even there pure stupidity is reason enough, and of course I would sue them for an ungodly amount of money, usually that gets their eyes to open and phones to start working.

    In Philadelphia the parking Authority also s**ks, they bacisally give the tickets even when there is a note on the meter indicating that the Smartcard does not work or the coins will not registered.

    Finally, I was told that the meter was not working and they would place a work order into the system, but I still had to fight the ticket.
