I had an issue with parking with our city and I ended up paying it because it often doesn't pay to fight even if you're right. It's irritating. But later in the day my car was towed and they want me to pay for that too! While I understand there can be some gaps from the time someone gets towed, they should check in first to see if it was paid and I certainly was. Do I have a defense or is this more punishment being doled out by the city?
