So, have you ever been someplace, say Downtown in the evening and you park in a seemingly unattended lot with ambiguous signage?
And then you get out of your car, you get hassled by some guy who supposedly “works” in the lot asking for $6 for flat fee parking. And you look at him like he’s crazy because he’s not wearing a uniform, just a flannel shirt and jeans, but you give him the $6 becuase you’re afraid if you don’t give him some protection money for your car he’s going to let the air out of your tires and scratch the heck out of the paint job on your car?
Should you pay these guys? How can you tell if they’re really supposed to be there or not? Aside from handing these guys your hard earned cash, how can you deal with this? Where does the law stand on this?
