(Oddity Central)   If you're going to put a fake parking ticket on your car window so police won't give you a real one it's probably best to check that you don't park next to an unmarked police car ... with its dash camera turned on   ( odditycentral.com) divider line

A guy I used to work with would try this all the time. The meter maids in San Francisco didn't give a shiat if you already had a ticket on your car, they'd just give you another one.

Yup. Same here in Boston.

Hell, some meter maids are probably tempted to look to see if It is a real ticket and then issuing one.  Others might not give a fark and just issue one anyway.

Isn't that every crime in a criminal's mind?

Oh sure, the cameras are on for THAT.

Do people who do that think that the meter maid won't remember she didn't ticket you the first time? Or that there's some kind of limit on how many tickets you can get for being parked in a red zone or on an expired meter?

Guess what, there isn't.

A sassy meter maid would lift up the windshield wiper on the other side and put a ticket down.

This being China, the ticket was for summary execution, to be carried out on her birthday, after her cat was used to make her last meal.

A man's gotta know the statute of limitations.

So the penalty for forging a government document was just getting the ticket she should have got in the first place?

It seems that sort of punishment might encourage others to try it too.  I'd argue that that is at least worth impounding her car, if not some charges for forgery.

Pretty clever, although people who live in areas with a lot of meters seem to have thought of this long ago and it doesn't seem to work. Unmarked police cars should not be a thing.

Hey, it works in college against the parking enforcers who are just students working part-time.  If you get the same spot every time, they won't care.

Just shoot an unarmed black kid and they will lose the camera footage.

That's how I'd figure it works

This happened in China.

"Spooky" evidently has never lived in the city of Chicago, nor is familiar with the city's
parking ticket-application policies

We'll give you tickets all day if they are consistent with the rules for doing so.  Just having a ticket on your windshield doesn't mean shiat, we have people who accumulate a dozen tickets a week trying this stunt and it never works.

Sassy black lady cop? Without whom no copy show would be complete?

One time I looked at a ticket the guy in front of where I parked, just to see what it was issued for, and whether there was some reason I couldn't park there.  A Boston cop saw me do it and jumped all over my shiat, assuming I was going to take the ticket and put it on my truck.  It was the first time I had heard of such goings-on.

No attempting to obey the law.  We've got revenue to collect.

Round these parts, a visible ticket is usually an invitation to tow.

There is someone who parks at a meter near my work everyday.  I never see them come or go but when I leave the office their SUV is there every single day.   2 to 3 times a week they have a parking ticket as well.  either they are pulling the same scam successfully or they have a  ridiculous amount of extra cash to spend on fuel for their SUV and meters and parking tickets.
