I conclude that either it was a recently hired meter maid, or the Parking department is increasing its efforts to give out tickets. /rant
I hate that the Stanford "police" (they can't reasonably be called real police) refuse to budge on parking tickets. First, my freshman year, tickets were $20; now they're $45-$60 (outrageous). Second, they literally won't allow you to contest tickets. It is such bullshit. I hate those damn cops. They have nothing better to do than troll for parking tickets and it bothers me to no end.
Hmm. If they're truly acting as a municipal government, this would seem like a government denial of a right to due process.
I committed a terrible sin here, using the word "literally" incorrectly (like Joe Biden). I apologize for this hyperbole. What I meant to say was, "they will allow you to contest them, but I can assure you that you will never win."
