“ATTN: No meter enforcement today,” the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency tweeted Thursday morning. The official Twitter account for the City of San Francisco followed suit, tweeting “No Parking Meter Enforcement Today Due to #sfstorm.” Heck, we even reported it, quoting a Bay City News report in which SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose said that “parking control officers are more focused on keeping traffic moving and keeping people safe.”
But apparently not all of them had the same focus, as some drivers who didn’t feed the meter yesterday still got tickets, much to their dismay…
Well, that’s certainly frustrating, as that reader will not be one of the alleged nine who will have their slips dismissed. My advice to him, as dissatisfying as it is: Start the dispute process (now available, kind of, online) now, go take a picture of the parking space, and print out those tweets.
Need more proof that you can’t trust the SFMTA?
