That's what your wife said.
Its a tiny P with a line through it which is the universal sign for no parking.
I'm glad you fought it and took advantage of your right, congrats on getting it dismissed, but I'm surprised they let you off.

So you lied? Lets hope they don't read this board.
Next to a massive FAIL, which according to the two sources in this thread, makes it a no parking zone on MSUs campus.
No, but nice try.
How the hell do you get that dismissed in 3 days? I smell bullshit

Parking douchebag story of the day. I was walking past Anthony, when I noticed one of the parking Gestapo agents standing around looking at a meter. I walked up to it and saw it was on 2 minutes, so I put a quarter in and raised an eyebrow at the girl. She laughed in my face and started writing up a parking ticket for the guy.
Why are the parking police such arrogant bastards? And why are they allowed to give tickets to cars that have time left on the meter? Yes, I know the rule is "you can't put money in anyone else's meter" (which is the most absurd law I've ever heard - they could conceivably just write tickets all day and claim that no one put money in their own meter), but she had no idea if it was my car or not. She, and every other parking agent on campus, is a parasite on a power trip. And there's absolutely nothing a student can do about it.
Is that seriously a law? You can't fill someone else's meter?

Should have just told her it was your car.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
The purpose of a parking meter is not just to raise revenue; it's to allocate scarce parking spaces. You could hire someone to feed the meter and keep a metered space all day.
Folks of a certain age may recall when MSU regularly towed vehicles for minor parking infractions. A friend took MSU to the state Supreme Court over that practice...
Outside Kinko's Copies, she noticed Officer Edward Johnson writing a parking ticket. She asked if he'd written the license number on the ticket yet. Johnson said he hadn't, so she put a nickel in the meter. Then she noticed that the meter next to it had also expired. She put a dime in that one.
"My thought was, 'Maybe I can keep somebody from getting a parking ticket,' " she said. "I hope somebody would do that for me."
Johnson told her it was against the law to put money in expired meters--something that's true in many cities.
Johnson asked her for her ID. She refused to show him one. She didn't think she had to. He told her she was under arrest. She thought he was kidding and started to walk away.
"I wasn't walking away to be a smart-aleck," she said. "I thought he was being humorous."
He wasn't. He grabbed her, twisted her arms behind her back and handcuffed her. She screamed. Not only did her arm hurt, but she didn't want to drop the papers that might save her house. She asked a passerby to get her husband, waiting for her in a car around the corner. When he learned she was being arrested for putting money in a parking meter, Norris Stayton was dumbfounded. "I was under the impression that's what they're for," he said.
They're selling T-shirts with the meter-feeding granny on them, they're singing songs about her.The T-shirts show her behind bars made of parking meters and say, Sylvia Stayton . . . guilty of
Thank you, Denicos.
Parking enforcement officers...I can only imagine what lame, unrewarding lives they lead.
I did. She asked me to open it. I said I left the keys with my friend inside. She laughed and wrote up the ticket.
What a bitch. I would have said "Alright, let me go get them" and just never returned after putting change in. She probably would have still written the ticket though.
was she hot?
If Pete Seeger or Bob Dylan haven't written songs about her, that little old lady ain't shit.

If you're a hot college coed, you probably don't need to earn money by selling out your fellow students.
I'm surprised no one else here isn't curious about what kind of car Cool Hand Luke was driving.
Those "gallon smashers" aren't very bright, are they?
