Reader: Parking ticket for tires on the curb is appropriate whether it's 4 a.m. or not
Patricia Calhoun's post about receiving a parking ticket at 4 a.m. because her tires were on the curb in front of her house drew something of a rebuke -- albeit a good-natured one.
Here's the reader's slant on the issue.
In NYC, you'd get ticketed just as fast for parking on the curb. You'll also get a ticket for 'abutting' the curb (tire pressed against it), unless parked on a steep hill, and parking more than 12 inches from the curb. And, yes, they do carry rulers to measure!
Just curious... did you not notice your car was tilted at a strange angle when you parked? Why would anyone think that parking ON the curb was appropriate? Why not just go all the way and park on the sidewalk?
