    I’ve seen a few waiting to write tickets when the meter is about to expire.

    One time I saw a woman get out of her Porsche, and put a bag over the meter. When I looked, it said ‘Out of order’. Meter was working, I took the bag, she got a ticket. HA-ha!

    I’ve heard of people like Clyde who get fined for doing what he does.
    @Simpsonfan2, you’re a meany.

    In Philly and NYC, they would arrest Clyde. No joke.

    @randayn: Yes, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my client will prove that the sole purpose of his actions was to commit random acts of kindness.

    If you get caught, that is.

    Don’t you realize why the meters are there? So that others can park there, not just the first guy of the day. If the tickets weren’t high, some scofflaws would park like U.N. delegates.

    Some towns have an official parking fairy, funded by the downtown business association. It’s been proposed in my town. The idea is someone dresses up as a fairy (or clown) and prances around the downtown area putting coins in meters that are about to expire, and leaves a note on the windshield explaining and soliciting donations. I think it’s a great idea and I think there would be no shortage of volunteers and donations.

    I’m enrolled in college, my classes are only two days a week so I park at the meters rather than pay the ever-rising rate for a parking pass. I pay close attention to the time and always run back out to deposit more change.

    They’d be dressed as fairies in San Francisco; clowns in D.C.

    They used to have ‘angels’ do that around Christmas here. You can’t anymore because they’ve put new sensors in and you have to go when your times up or it sends a message to the meter person. No running down and adding more if you’re going to be longer than you expected.

    Not very Christian of them but very Capitalist bottom line of them. But the tickets make them more money. It is a form of taxation.
