I got my first parking ticket in New Orleans yesterday and I’m not even a full-time resident yet. Arg.
Stupid lesson to learn the hard way. My ticket was for improper parking. I parked in the grass in front of our apartment. It’s a two-way street, and I parked in the opposite direction of traffic. And that, my friends, will cost me $20.
The fine doubles for every violation and for every 30 days past due.
Well, now I know. Police are everywhere in New Orleans. Obey the parking laws.
