Ok I parked my car outside Wawa in a legal spot to parallel park because the parking lot was really crowded. So I go in to get coffee and I come out to find a cop writing me a ticket. I was NICE to the cop as I wasn't sure what I was getting a ticket for. She tells me that I parked too FAR FROM THE CURB and writes me a bullshit ticket for like $30 :pissed: . The thing is I couldn't have been more than 3-4 inches from the curb! This cop must have been really dumb because then she went to her car to find out if having my calipers painted red was illegal (which it's not). After about listening to 15 minutes of making illegal mods to your car speech from the cop she asked about my exhaust. I DARED her to go test it for sound, as the Dragger II is sound legal as far as I know. She said fine I'll take your word for it and I drove away.

Cops are such ass holes, the only reason I got that ticket was because I am driving a Lexus and the cop isn't IMO. :pissed:

Too far from the curb at three to four inches? That's BS. From what I know you have to be more than 12 inches out to be in any violation.

i know someone who got a ticket for parking too far from the curb but she REALLY was parked more than 12" from the curb.
I called the local police station and asked them how far you had to be away from the curb to qualify for a ticket they told me at least 13". I told them one of their officers wrote me a ticket for parking 4 inches of the curb and hassled me about my car for no reason. Luckily when the cop wrote me a ticket I took a picture of how far away from the curb I was with my phone camera. The officer I spoke with on the phone said to come by tommorow and show the picture. He said if I can prove the picture is legit he will tear up the ticket and the n00b cop that wrote me a fine will probobly be reprimanded.

In San Fran, if you dont park with your wheels pointed in or out (depends on if your facing up or down), its a 100 dollar ticket
that's only if you're on a hill no?
