As far as I can remember, I have never received a parking ticket.
But today I got lucky.
In this small town that I live in, there is not alot of parking. And the parking that is on the main streets (there are two), have 2 hour parking. Frustrating to say the least. But usually one can get errands done downtown within the 2 hours.
If for some reason one needs to be at the university and one forgets about the 2 hour time limit, one can get a parking ticket.
I think $25.00 would be a reasonable amount as a fine.
But OH NO, it's a $50 fine according to Bylaw #199.
That's a day's wage. That's a day's pay.
Gone. Done. Over.
I know that it was my fault, so I guess I'm disappointed in myself, that I completely forgot about the parking.
So I came home and found something , non edible , to cheer me up.
