will there be a parking trifecta today?

Lived in Stockholm for a couple of years. It's impossible to understand some parking sings, and you have to pay different prices according to the place, hour, sun incidence and god knows what else.
They also fine you for everything.

Amature.

This is more a measure of the government's stupidity.

If a car has 5 tickets on it already just impound the thing and don't let it go until the owner pays everything in full. It sounds like in this case the city just kept ticketing the same stationary car day in and day out for years.

That's nothing. Bill Brasky gets parking tickets all the time with a cost numbering in the millions. He gets them on purpose to use as toilet paper.

Submitter does not pass go, does not collect $200

Five men owe about 800,000 usd together, the leader with 1583 tickets owe 223,000 usd.

He should do a multiple-item auction on eBay.

'Buy my parking tickets!'
 
2006-03-06 10:23:21 AM
I'm surprized he can see out the front window with all those tickets stuck behind the wipers.
 
2006-03-06 10:27:40 AM
are we going for the boot trifecta?
 
2006-03-06 10:28:03 AM
"We can't impose a fine just for the sake of it".

Wow! How refreshing! So you can get fined in Sweden, but they won't enforce it arbitrarily?

/wish the Canadian Revenue Agency was so decent about my penalties.

bongmiester: are we going for the boot trifecta?

Farkers everywhere are scurrying around the net, looking for another news article on parking tickets.

They're only worth what somebody will pay for them.

From TFA Even if the Enforcement Administration manages to track down the car,

They wrote the car 1500 tickets, but can't find the car? I'm confuzzled.

It makes my 4 parking tickets worth a total of $80 seem a little insignificant.

Apparently they are more laid back about parking violations in Stockholm than in Chicago. Hurrah for Stockholm.
 
2006-03-06 11:10:26 AM
Man...here in South Florida that would cost about 55,405.00 My a$$ is moving to Stockholm, and I'm parking wherever the hell I want.

No, you almost never get your car impounded here in Sweden, or a boot on it. So you can throw the ticket away and keep parking where ever you like. Some people even signs over there cars to their children and let the kid get in debt, cause if you dont pay your fines in five years time they are gone..

It was a joke - I calculated it based on 1,583 tickets EACH worth 800k.

OK, this is the lowdown, it isnt ONE car, it's about 30 cars, for the guyg who owe the most, and he has signed for ownership for all his friends cars, so they cant park wherever they want. He doesnt even have a drivers license.

Oh, and he is an anarchist b*stard.

Sweden is all about bureocracy and paperwork, they can never take direct action. To take tow and abandoned car in front of my appartment, they took about 4 months (and like 20 papers under the wipers) to finally take it. And the car never moved.
 
2006-03-06 01:23:19 PM
whoa, that's like $1,266,400,000

damn

That reminds me - i have to give the City of Boston $420 in order to get my registration renewed.

Pardon me while I bend over and get a new poop shoot installed.
