An insurance worker who paid £10 to park in Wimbledon was given a £60 fine after her ticket ‘curled up’ on her window. After returning within her paid for time, she was "horrified" to discover a parking ticket for £60 citing a ‘failure to correctly display ticket’. "I can only assume, due to the absolute torrential rain on that morning, the ticket got wet in the walk from the ticket machine to my car and the heat of the car then made the ticket curl over."
A suburban Chicago police officer allegedly turned a $132 speeding ticket into a pick-up opportunity when he later tracked down the female driver and asked her out, saying the least he could do for the money he'd cost her was to treat her to dinner, according to a lawsuit the woman filed in federal court.

When the position was opened to nominations from the floor and after multiple rounds of rancorous voting, emerging victorious were Lee Wrights for Vice Chair and Geoff Neale for Chair (endorsed by Wrights and Mary Ruwart). The rout continued for other LNC positions, with several longtime conservative operatives thrown out. Among the fresh slate of principled libertarians elected is Starchild, the superactivist from San Francisco.

Living in Boston, Massachusetts, which is, I believe, the parking ticket capital of the world, I get more parking tickets per year than most get in a lifetime. We actually budget $1,000 a year to pay parking tickets. One might ask: Why not just park legally? And while in your town, that might make sense, in Boston, that is sometimes impossible.
Minarchist Jan Helfeld interviews Michael Steele who chair of the RNC until recently, if taxes are voluntary and he says, "Yes." Helfeld is brilliant but he fails to elicit any recognition in Steele of the truth behind this question asked and re-asked in several different ways. To watch the continued denial of the bold reality would be excellent parody if it weren't real.
