He was ticketed for parking in a No Stopping zone.

The level of entitlement out there these days is fucking ridiculous.

There are too many unhinged and aggressive people driving.

The ability to permanently revoke a driver license and confiscate person vehicles should be made easy.

There is one really simple trick to not get a parking ticket follow the parking rules.

And if in the incredibly rare situation that you wrongly get a ticket, it takes less than 10 minutes to challenge it online.

There's absolutely no excuse for yelling at, or assaulting parking officers, they are just trying to keep the City moving

Funny enough the ones breaking the laws are often the exact same people complaining about how bad traffic is. If you think traffic sucks, you should be hailing parking enforcement for helping fix it.

If he punched the parking enforcement it’s likely he could afford to because the rich know that our laws only apply to the poor. For the rich it’s just a costly service to be able to punch a ticket cop

The parking problem in this city is so insane, it's probably my biggest pet peeve living here to the point I would literally advocate impounding these idiots cars no question.

If you park your car in the middle of a throughlane in a shopping centre or whatever, blocking half the lane for everyone else so we have to squeeze by so you don't have to walk 10 feet from a proper space then you should lose your car. Even if it's "just for a second!!", you obviously are a lazy fuck and you need to relearn how to walk so bye bye car.

So strange how traffic tickets can enrage an otherwise pretty chilled out person. My father got a speeding ticket once on those awesome family road trips and lost his temper for a small fine. He was speeding so definitely guilty.
