In Lafayette we have our share of parking meters downtown but for a quarter I can usually get all of my errands taken care of with out fear of being ticketed. I don't know how much money the city takes in off of these meters but every little bit adds up.

 In a city like New York I bet those parking meter quarters really add up, that's why they pay people to go check them. This is a case of a parking cop and a citizen having a friendly disagreement about whether the meter is expired. The officer is maintaining that a ticket should be issued for a violation, the citizen has a different idea. You make the call as to who comes out the winner in this particular case.
