A couple weeks ago I got a parking ticket on Martin Luther King Day. I parked between two signs that said "...except Sundays and Holidays", so I thought I was in a safe zone. However, on a nearby payment machine (one that spits out tags with a time on them) there was a small list of holidays that were exempt from parking violations, MLK day not listed among them.
I didn't bother looking at the machine because what I read on the signs told me all was ok to park on the street there.
The ticket is about $40. Should I just pay it or contest it?
