. . . for double parking for literally 5 minutes outside of the mercantile wharf building UPS store when I had to drop off a package to be shipped. Gonna pay it- but- give me a break- snow mounds 5 feet high on either side of the street- snowed in cars everywhere- no where to park . . . I don't know- maybe there could be some easing up on parking tickets in this kind of weather? Big topic- with a lot of viewpoints- and I get that if "everyone" just parked for 5 minutes . . . but . . . come on!
You may want to look into the actual regulations. I know in some cities, double parking for "expedient deliveries" are legal. Not sure about Boston.
. . . it's a 45 buck ticket- and I'd probably end up wasting as much if not more in time contesting it. If it were a hundred bucks? Yeah- might find the time to contest.
www.cityofboston.gov has an online appeal submission system. They let me off the hook when I fed the wrong meter on morning. Good luck!
. . . best tip thus far on this site. Thanks!
also give the URL for paying/appealing right on the ticket?
Snow mounds 5 feet high, roads already too narrow, and you think it is OK to double park?
thank you for posting!
to photograph the Statie throwing the ticket on the ground.
... has resulted in arrests in the past, at least when the BPD has been involved.
Or was it a ticket the officer placed in his windshield himself, to make it *look* like he was accountable. This is the regular window dressing outside Center Plaza by the courthouses.
So when the trooper doesn't pay the ticket, does the City of Boston slap a non-renewal status on MSP reg. #637, even though state and municipal plates have been exempt from renewal since 1975? Seems like a waste of a ticket, the meter maid's time, the computer used to issue it, the person in the office that must process it, etc.
