Parking Ticket Roulette
Parking fines in NYC are so hard to figure out. Let's say for some strange reason you end up parking on the sidewalk. How would you know if you'll get a $25 fine or a $500 fine? That's such an arbitrary range. How do they determine who gets the $25 fine and who gets the $500 fine? It's probably a good thing if you do get a ticket because the alternative is that your car or truck is going to fall into the subway. This is the only time when it's better to get a ticket. Of course you could always go to traffic court and fight the ticket.
