Trib Problem Solver Gets Driver Parking Ticket Justice
He gets things done.
That’s probably why he’s called the Problem Solver.
In his most recent column, Yates takes up the parking ticket dilemma of a local driver who very carefully parked on a metered side of a northside street where meter enforcement ends at 6 PM.
After working out at a local gym, he returned to his car to find a parking ticket on his windshield for an expired meter issued at 6:03 PM.
Turns out, directly across the street, metered parking ends at 9 PM. Confusing to be sure, but a mistake on the part of the ticket writer.
The motorist contested the ticket.But despite providing photo evidence that metered parking ended on the side of the street where his car was parked, the Administrative Law Officer still upheld the ticket.
Problem Solver to the rescue!
Yates makes a few phone calls down to the Department of Administrative Hearings and shortly, the city vacates the parking violation.
The crowd goes wild.
