'Lectronic Parkin' Tix in the Loo

So we have at least one advantage. Parking tix are cheap. Ten bucks. That is just a small fee to park. But what good is it if you pay off your tix/parking fee and you still get the boot?

This may have been already publicly discussed or published, but apparently the new ticket system doesn't take into consideration if you have paid your tickets yet. From what I understand- and this might be wrong, but from whom I have talked to this is correct; all you need are 4 tickets and you get the boot. Let us say you rack up for quick tix in a day or two. Street sweeping doubled with yellow zone, and two expired meters. It happens on occasion. So you may have no past due parking tickets, but you can get the boot. That is what I have figured out.

And I know that tickets don't hit online for 48 hours, but I don't know if the tickets show up on the handheld computers. That can really throw someone for a loop. You can try to pay, be unable to, and still get the boot. And if you do pay, does it register in enough time for the person with the handheld computer? Gad!

It is a good thing I got the juice.

Thank you. I usually put the posts through a word program, but I just did this one through the web. I will fix it in a bit.
