Today I get an email from “Berta” who comments here fairly often. She is just a bit peeved.
She parked at one of the huge lots in Glendale. She parked at the far end so she would have room for her husband who is handicapped to be able to get in and out of the car easy. She arrived back to find a ticket on her car. A quick look at the meter shows that there is ample time.
She tells me “I pulled a frazgo and started taking pictures”. Berta decides to dispute the ticket as the Parking Reader must have thought she was in the other space that had the expired meter. (You need to make the jump to get the rest of the story and eets a wiener)
A picture goes in to show she was in the space she was in had time to coincide with the meter picture.
Then she tosses in one more picture to show again which space she was in. (And it even proves up she was parked at the far end of a near empty lot as well as having time left).
How does Glendale Parking respond? They send her a note “I get a response indicating that one was dismissed although properly given ..But dismissed “in the name of justice”. Sounds good? You think she won a round with Glendale PD?
Nope. She gets another letter the next day, this time INCLUDING a ticket for parking over the line.
How is that for swift and fair justice. You win one round with parking and they wham you the next day with another ticket. Nice, mighty nice.
