Have you ever parked in a two hour parking spot? (or hour, or thirty minutes...the amount of time really doesn't matter for this conversation....) Have you ever thought to yourself, how would they know if it was over two hours anyway? WELL! Today I had an awakening about this very subject.
While walking down the side walk of Main Street I came upon a police officer who was walking along the back of all the cars parked on the street. I noticed that she was carrying a large pole with her. I then noticed that as she was walking along she would rub the tip of the pole on the back right tire of the car. Not long after I noticed this little phenomenon taking place Maggie (who had been walking beside me)stated that there was blue chalk at the end of the pole.
So THAT'S how it's done! They mark the tire, then they wait two hours and check to see which tires have marks on them and they give them tickets! Who knew??? Well, now you do.
Oh the things you learn when you don't even try...
