Take that, Baltimore City!

I was issued a parking citation 3 months ago which I decided to contest. My court date was today and I won! Not guilty! Yayyyyy!

What should I do with the 52$ I saved myself?

That's because you were guilty, whereas I wasn't actually parked in the transit zone (bus stop).

The judge suspended everybody else's fines and charged them court costs. I was the only one he found not guilty in the hour I was there.

I think it might have had something to do with having photographic evidence of the location of my car and the relevant signs...

My "trial" lasted less than 90 seconds. It was awesome.

nice

it is true that I am generally deserving

sometimes the parking signs are confusing though, last time I think I just payed it (might get towed sometime when I return to CP though)

So far in my life I've gotten 2 parking tickets, 2 speeding tickets, one "failure to attach front and rear tags" and a verbal warning from a cop who I cut off while doing 40 mph in a 25 mph zone .

The speeding tickets were both in upstate New York and everything else was in Baltimore. I contested both parking tickets. The first one they simply didn't give me a court date on, and I won this one. I was definitely guilty of the rest of the violations.

I've got two parking tickets in my life so far, one of which was completely correct (but I didn't want to move the car because it was pouring down) and the other which was technically correct (and thus unchallengeable, really) but completely, utterly ridiculous. (Later found out that the parking attendant in the town concerned was a famous asshole and milimeter-measurer.)

Hmmm, 6 speeding fines and two warnings, 2 wheel clampings and 3 parking tickets in 5 different countries so far from 19 years driving – which is significantly less than one driving offence per year.

Worse was my 20th anniversary of starting full-time work on 4th Jan...

Just as well that I've managed to find ways of actually avoiding work for significant portions of that time...

So essentially we started on the same day – first working day of the year, ten years apart.

They're hard to avoid in America. The dickheads love to come up with arcane offenses which aren't posted in order to generate revenue. All the politicians are cowardly to raise taxes so they resort to sneaky fines on everything.
