I got a parking ticket- and I’m happy.

I pulled up in front of my office to unload the car yesterday- and parked facing the wrong way.

I didn’t do my usual run back out and move the car- it was going to be less than 30 minutes- and voila, Officer Willy Hooper did his job and wrote me a ticket!

$35 or $25 if I pay within 72 hours. No online payment, or pay by phone- just in person or by mail- but, hey, at least the cops are finally realizing that the city can earn revenue from tickets.

Now, if they’d actually start running speed traps, writing tickets for running the stop sign at Bonner and Adams, and enforcing the noise ordinance- we’d be making real progress.

(hint) People don’t speed in Oakwood for a reason.
