    Five minutes late saddled me with a $44 ticket last week. Just curious how that compares to the rest of the country.

    Oh, and how much is your parking? We're paying $4/hour.

    I parked without feeding the meter just the other day. Got bailed out this morning and looking at a plea deal of 8 to 10 years. :-(

    Philly ranges from 26 to 76 for most offenses depending on when and where.
    The kicker is the automatic fees and court costs that get tacked on.

    A $26 ticket can cost over $100 with all the shit added on.

    Commercial vehicles can be 10x's higher.

    Meters are 2 bucks an hour, garages 4 bucks and up but
    many offer discounts for all day parking.

    The last ticket I ever got was in Philly, the end of South Street next to the Duane Reade. I was dating a girl at St Joes at the time and just missed the parking asshole by a couple minutes (I saw her checking the next car over when I got back to the car). I threw the ticket away and my old man tried to chew me out when he was notified via mail that he could no longer park anywhere in Philly because of the overdue ticket. I explained the situation and we had a laugh, and I have only parked in Philly once since. He just sent a check for the ticket amount, told me to give him the cash, and that was that. Fuck Philly meter maids.

    Yup, they're assholes because you got a ticket and didn't deal with it.


    Right......

    A scumbag U of P cop in Philly wrote us a ticket for parking the ambulance in a no parking zone while dropping off a patient at CHOP...there were no spaces available and patient was a priority transport....I actually had to go with my boss to Philly to traffic court.to fight the ticket...I think the fine was $1000... we didn't have to pay...But I think we rang up about 500 on the company getting food, drinks, and fuel.

    $200 for parking near a DC bus stop area on a weekend last month where 3-4 buses could have fit. The asshat also ticketed at least 5 cars parked behind me. I still haven't paid, had out of state plates and plan on getting new registration in another state, hopefully that shit doesn't come up.

    I got a ticket for missing the airport meter by 15 minutes in Vegas 10 or 15 years ago and it was $15 if you paid it on the way out of the parking garage. I have no idea what it is now.

    They're dickheads though. They have well-timed systems for maximizing how much they rake in. For example, on a street that's technically 2-way but there's zero chance of ever getting 2 cars passing each other at the same time (because it's always parked up), they'll get you for parking in the wrong direction. Which is gay, but it's a legitimate law, whatever. Thing is, they don't ticket for it every day or every week. Every so often they go out and get people all at once, capitalizing on their complacency & forgetfulness. I'm sure they've worked it all out with graphs and statistical analyses.

    edit: shit, I thought that old-ey time spelling of here there be serpents was way more common. only 3 hits on google. don't I look like the fuckin' asshoele.

    They took out all the meters here. You get 2 hours to get your shit done. I've never had anything to do that took more then 2 hours. When they had meters, I think I got a ticket once and the fine was something like 50 cents.

    Our meters were ripped out and replaced with kiosks. You have to put a sticker in your window for up to one hour. And you are only allowed one re-up.

    I was parked in a recently expired meter and if I got there a couple minutes prior I could have dodged that bullet. I was also a stupid hot head 22 year old. I know I wasnt right but it still just sticks in my head. That and I also saw an off duty cop (in full uniform) park his car underneath a "No parking at any time" sign this afternoon so he could run into the local bodega to get whatever the hell he was going for so maybe that is just irritating me at the moment.

    $15 if paid within 10 days $18 thereafter. Meters are few and far between, but the ones here in fargo run about a buck an hour.

    They're doing that kiosk thing everywhere now. They have em in Philly,
    NYC and what's left of the Jersey shore or at least Asbury Park ( last place I was ).

    Denver, it's $25, or it was when I was 10 minutes late coming out of the bar. It stays $25 for 30 days, then jumps to I think $75 if it's not paid by the 30 day limit.

    $20 bucks, but if you forget after so much time the bastards pack on another $20. I personally haven't gotten a parking ticket in a long time.

    We never had DR's down here. Most likely a CVS or a Walgreens.

    My buddy got a $100 loading zone ticket in San Francisco. Enforcement hours were 8-6 and he got it at 8:02.

    Parking here in SF ranges from $10/day to $3/hr in the upscale garages.
