    What does that mean? Why are you so mean to me?

    It means I view your first post as deliberately inflamatory in order to provoke vehement response from other board members.

    I’m not mean to you, I’m rigid.

    enzo wrote I think two days of picking up trash or cleaning the jail would be a better solution. So, now she will get fired from her job and then slip even further down the rungs.

    So two days of missing work or 2 days of additional babysitting is affordable but not the original parking tickets she’s guilty of not paying in the first place? I agree with everyone else, take some responsibility.

    Is this controversial? I thought everyone would agree with me.

    I usually have sympathy for this type of thing, because I understand how it can become a vicious cycle. However, I live on a permit-only street and it absolutely infuriates me when I come home with heavy groceries or laundry and I can’t park anywhere near my house due to illegally parked cars. There is no good reason to park directly underneath a sign that says “No Parking” when there is free parking available one block over. I wish the city would ticket on my street more often.

    Aren’t parking tickets about $20? (that would be less than parking in Chicago for a day…)

    Tickets are great, necessary, and I encourage the same, I just feel sad for kids in situations like this and think that if she had to clean up trash or something where she could still mother her children would be better.

    You should look her up on http://www.fcmcclerk.com to see just how irresponsible she was. That would show all her traffic offenses in Franklin County.

    It’s not controversial, but no one agrees with you.

    Plus, what was she pulled over for? Police have to have probable cause to even run your plates, right?

    Parking in Permit Only areas w/o a permit is $40.

    Oh- your’re right. I parked on Spring once at 4:30 and a cop wrote me a ticket. He was pretty apologetic since I was in slide services for like 5 minutes and said he would have let me go had he not started writing it.

    Forgot about that. I paid it.

    For her to go to jail I will almost guarantee there was a bench warrant out for her. Judges usually are very accommodating to work, unless you have a warrant. Yes, you can get a bench warrant from unpaid parking tickets. Therefore, the offense was not unpaid parking tickets, but rather not showing up to court I would imagine.

    i think they park there because they dont want to walk a block.

    Yeah, I see that no one agrees. I must be on another planet. I just feel sad that she cannot be home for her children for who knows how long. Just seems like too serious of a punishment. Jail for parking tickets does not match up in my mind.

    Welp. She should have paid those tickets.

    That said, there is a large number of people living paycheck to paycheck in our ‘society of plenty’- some are single parents. A setback like this can really mess up the delicate balance they have keeping their family together.

    Nothing funny about that.
