You were out enjoying your day, when all of a sudden you could owe anywhere between thirty to a few hundred dollars. Sure, it's your fault for parking illegally, but we all mistakes. Is there any way these tickets can be avoided?
One person believes she knows how to be beat the system. A Twitter user by the name of Keidy posted that she has a simple trick for avoiding tickets. She puts a fake ticket on her windshield, so all ticket officers leave her car alone.
If you've got a parking ticket on your windshield, perhaps it really can act as a universal parking pass. Want to park next to a fire hydrant, or on the actual sidewalk? If you've already got a ticket on your car, then go for it!
Of course, Keidy wasn't the first person to come up with this idea. Other people have put fake tickets on their cars to avoid real tickets. And some people simply use tickets they've gotten in the past to ward off getting more tickets in the future.
Another person suggested something more drastic than using a fake ticket. Instead, you can get a boot and boot your own car. This one costs $17.95, but if it saves you hundreds in tickets, it could be worth it.
In the end, maybe all this trickery isn't worth it. The best way to avoid a ticket is still by parking in an actual, legal parking space. Even if it takes more time to find that space, it's usually worth it.
