Los Angeles Parking Finally Caught Me
Well due to the tight budget the L.A. City Parking Division has stepped it up. While parked outside of my house on Saturday, on a quiet residential street I got popped for no front license plate. WTF that’s bull $hit. Does the city need my 25 bucks that bad? Doesn’t seem sporting at all. If I’m go get caught without a font plate I want a peace officer to have to pull me over and write me a proper ticket. One where the ‘VIN’ box is filled in with my car’s VIN, not the word ‘TOOHIGH’, maybe is should have said ‘TOOLAZY’.
Well it seems I can reduce it by placing the license plate back on the front of my car and taking a picture, and sending that picture with a check for 10 bucks to the L.A. City Parking Bureau. I’ll be skipping that exercise and enjoying paying online for an extra $2.00 fee. Wait, I should send it in a check in an envelope just to be spiteful but that might backfire and bankrupt the Division, seems better to pay the $2 fee and be done.
The real question this raised for me was how long before they can ticket me again? If I park on the road say the next day an a new ‘Parking Agent’ comes buy will I get stung again? Crap, looks like I’ll have to put the broken license plate back on the truck. And yes, I’m a violator of the front license plate law…
The last thing that was amusing about the event was the bottom of the ticket had a small note that said “Citation increased $3.00 by the State”. Well I guess I’m helping keeping the fine State of California out of Bankruptcy.
