I enjoyed the article on parking tickets in Boston — when I lived there a number of years ago I took advantage of the habit that students had of jamming the parking meters with pop-tops at night; I’d park at a jammed meter the next morning, get a ticket, and write an appeal on the grounds that the meter was jammed. I don’t think I ever paid a parking fine for those meters — of course I collected a glove box full of tickets for other parking offenses, like a good Bostonian!
