NYC change parking rules then tickets parked cars $115

http://newyork.cbslocal.com

In NYC, an arbitrary stretch of road which previously allowed parking, was suddenly changed to no standing any time. After the change, within 25 minutes, parking enforcement arrived and began issuing $115 parking tickets. When confronted about the sudden rule change and the fact that people did not have time to move, none of them seemed to care.

Furthermore, the official response basically told the owners of those cars that if they didn't like the ticket then they can fight it in court.

The app lets users "sign in" and report sightings of parking officers with a single push of a button. Cartoon faces wearing a police cap then appear plotted on a map of the area, along with a notice thanking them.

Cambridge art project turns your parking tickets into poetry

http://www.wickedlocal.com

Instead of responding to that parking citation you got on Cambridge Street with frustration, tears or rage, the city has included yoga positions on the envelopes. New parking signs have also been installed to "wonder about them and find them puzzling". For example: "If you’re reading this sign, You’re reading this sign". "Soft Boots" for cars, made of soft fabric and stuffed, will be placed on select cars throughout the city.
