Reason 251

#251: Parking tickets here get dismissed about as fast as they are handed out.

I have a very successful 2010-2013 record of paying $0 fees in spite of getting about 8 tickets. This record can not be tarnished because the car that got me all the tickets no longer exists.

Tickets getting dismissed is the optimist’s view of this situation.

The pessimist’s view is that you can get a ticket just about any time you park everywhere, even after wasting a good 10 minutes reading signs to make sure you are in a “safe” spot.

Ha! There are no safe spots. Good luck. And remember the optimist’s part of this story: you can always, always argue your way out of it.

Example of the ridiculous signs we have in DC. Also where the Togo-Turkey diplomatic fight goes down.
