Paying Tickets

Was wondering how many people pay or don't pay their parking tickets? I recently got a 100 dollar one for parking within 15' of a hydrant.. I was about 1 car length away from it, but there was no yellow painted zone on it.

then the next week i got another 1 for parking my bike in the UIC parking lot, it was covered and the person who ticketed me didn't see my UIC tag cuz it's on the license plate illuminator.. Then I got another ticket a few days later, after a month of parking my bike in the SAME parking lot. Apparently UIC parking services says that my bike will tear up the asphalt and I have to move my bike to a different parking lot.

The fire hydrant rules applioes whether or not the curb is painted yellow.


Wanna know what firefighters (WI at least) will do if they need a hydrant that is blocked by a parked car? (not saying yours was blocking it) THey'll either push it out of the way with the firetruck (and then the owner gets a repair bill for the firetrucks damage) or they will just run the hose through the side windows of the car. Seen a pic of that once and died laughing.

As for the bike in the lot, are you putting a kickstand plate down to keep it from sinking into the asphault? Ask to see where it is written in the lot rules that you cant park a STREET LEGAL and REGISTERED motorcycle in the lot? Is the other lot theirs also? Does it have concrete patches for motorcycles? IF they are so adament about you parking in their lot with it, demand your money back for the permit. Ya might wanna look into seeing if theres a statute that requires so many cycle parking spots for a lot size.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

yea, i've seen the hose through the side also.

As for the bike in their lot I read the rules and it said that I couldn't park it there, but I never really did read the rules beforehand. I mean I had to specifically go in and get a cycle sticker for my bike and no one told me that I couldn't park it the lot that I park my car.. they have alternative lots around campus that i can park my bike at with concrete pads.

Well, then you'll have to park in the other lot now. Always read any rules they have. Dont trust them to tell you them verbally.
