Wanting another opinion. Yesterday I was at a health center in a city that is close to me. There is a side street located on the side of the building. This is a pretty busy street which has an what i would call an island. There is parking on both sides of the island with a total of maybe a total of 75 or more spaces to park there. This is pretty normal for this street as it is hard to find a spot to park. When I got out to the car I noticed there was something under my wiper so I got it and read it. It turned out to be a parking violation. The reason as to what was given is "parking over 1 foot from the curb". This is a company that is not a part of the police dept. When I got home I called a few different police stations to get some opinions. The city that it happened in was my 1st call. I first told the dispatcher of the situation my situation and put me on hold. When someone picked up the phone to call me was another cop. I was told by that person that she wasn't familiar with that law. If a police person doesn't know about this law how am i suppose to know about it? After I talked to the cop she handed the phone to and told him of the situation and he started to laugh about it. I tried a few other stations and no one would give me an honest answer because in my opinion they thought it was a bogus reason for a ticket. One cop that I explained it to told me that I was putting her in an odd situation where it was hard for answering it with any truth. This tells me that she didnt think it was worthy of a ticket. It is only a $25 dollar ticket. I was also told this was in the handbook from which a person must study before they took their permit test. I took mine over 20 years ago so how was i to know of such a law. Also, how is a person suppose to know the exact amount of inches away from the curb. Was I suppose to bring a ruler to measure it to ensure I was the apropriate distance from the curb? LOL Opinions plz.
