Growl. I got two tickets today.

I go out to my car, and I have a City of Houston ticket. Why? For parking in the same spot for more than 24 hours. I am thoroughly baffled by this. I was parked legally on a very, very quiet cul-de-sac. It's certainly not intuitive to me that you can't park in the same spot for more than 24 hours, and there are no signs. In my area, everyone parks on the street. It's common to leave your car in the same spot (say, you go on vacation), and I'm not sure why moving it should be necessary. My city councilwoman will be hearing from me about this.

I have no idea why the heck any policeman would notice that my car had been parked there slightly more than 24 hours. Unfortunately, it only confirms my perception that Houston Police under Bill White are more interested in generating revenue than in law and order.

Then I got a parking ticket in the City of Austin. I got back to the meter later. Not a good day for me and the parking tickets.
