Today I got a parking ticket. I've never gotten a speeding ticket before, or any kind of ticket for that matter. What I find unfair about it is that I was parked in front of my friend's house in her residential neighborhood...my license plate tags were expired. I completely understand that I deserve a ticket if the car was being driven, it was my mistake that I didn't notice that they were expired and I shouldn't have been driving around in the car. But what I find unfair is the way the ticket was given. I wouldn't be as mad if I had been pulled over or if I had even been in a public area like a mall parking lot...but I was in front of her house right by where she parks her own vehicle. What if I had lived at her house and couldn't afford to get the plates replaced yet and left the car parked or something? I wasn't even driving the car...I'm so mad! Am i being outrageous? Is this common???
