‘It Was Extremely Hot Out So I Ran into Starbucks’: Parking Ticket Appeals

The Parking Commission recently received the following written appeals from ticketed motorists. “This is my vehicle that is parked in front of my house, which we have owned for over 40 years. Since we don’t have a ‘drive-in’ paved driveway, we park in front partly off the pavement, as indicated by the induced photo. The front of the house is our driveway, essentially. Over the 40+ years of both residing and renting out this house, we have occasionally parked driver-side-in depending on which way we arrived and which end of the car needed access for loading. Never once was there a ticket or even a warning as to how we were parking in which we considered our driveway. If this was a ticketable offense, again one would think that it would have received a ticket or even a warning any of the 100’s of times over the past 40+ years. I firmly believe that this deserved at least a warning, thus I object and request that it is withdrawn.”

As CBS2 started recording, some drivers started leaving. One...
