A steady trickle, at least ten or fifteen a day, come from the Google search string ‘how to get off a parking ticket’ or similar. Four or five come here looking for a sample letter to help get a parking ticket cancelled. The good news for you guys is that I shall be posting an article here some time this week, or maybe next, for your erudition and delectation called ‘How not to write a parking appeal letter’.
Now hold on a minute! Surely I’m one of the enemy – the soulless ticket hunter, mindless Street Robot, persecutor of the innocent motorist – why should I help you? What is my agenda? What’s your game Mister Sticker?
My ‘agenda’ if that’s what it is, is simple. I’m addicted to fair play. I sleep at night because I try to do what I do even handedly and without prejudice. If my employers were to rate my greatest assets, they would tell you they are my thoroughness, attention to detail and sheer dogged persistence. Oh yes, as my regular readers will attest, I despise some of the practices that certain of my colleagues use to keep their averages up to scratch. Having been cheated too often in another life I now detest cheats of all kinds. On both sides of the fence.
Hot off the press! Hold the front page! Important Announcement!

I’ve tried to do my best with the various logos and make them fun and entertaining. You never know, if I see you wearing my designs on street I may even be moved to crack a smile. Just don’t give me grief about the prices. I’m only making $1 to $3 an item.
Any problems, let me know and I'll do what I can to help.
