Nice place to visit

Tickets For Parking In Own Driveway - DC

Beverly Anderson is mad as hell. She just started to get tickets for parking in her own driveway.

That's right. The District of Columbia is ticketing people who park their cars in their own driveways.

"This is clearly an attempt by the city to extort money out of property owners," Anderson tells WTOP.

Anderson has received two of the $20 tickets in the past month. Anderson has owned the Capitol Hill house (and the driveway, so she thought) for more than ten years and has never gotten a ticket. And she's not alone.

This reminds me of the time the city of Warson Woods ticketed my car for expired plates -- at 3AM while it was parked in my drive. I don't miss living there very much.
