Parking ticket - Part 3 - The closure  
Part 1, Part 2

Happy day on a beach:

A sitting duck on a parking lot:

Gloomy mood after receiving the ticket:
Why did it happen? What do I do now?

It turned out that cops are giving tickets for parking on a grass in our area for at least 12 years:
Julie Wintz of Ponte Vedra Beach finds a parking ticket on the windshield of a friend's car Sunday at Mickler's Landing. The car was parked on the grass.
On Saturday afternoon, sheriff's Deputy Gene Ash was busy writing tickets for every vehicle parked along the side of Mickler's lot, on the grass and next to trees. He said he wrote about 30 on Memorial Day weekend.

Couple of years ago I parked "along the side of Mickler's lot, on the grass", but did not get ticket back then.

I guess this time my luck ran out.

I learned "no parking on a grass in Ponte Vedra Beach" rule.

There is no point to go in court, since most likely outcome would be "guilty".
Spending couple hours in court might be fun and educational, but there are many other things that are educational and take less time.

Couple of my neighbors are also saying that they would have "just pay" in similar situation (or actually did pay).

So, I'm going to mail-in $40 and put that story behind me.

It's a learning experience.

There are no long-term consequences, such as spoiling the record?

...might be fun and educational

Educational - may be, disillusion at least. But I'm strongly doubt that court might be fun.

1) Parking ticket does NOT result in points that spoil my driving record.

2) The first time in court will be fun.
But there are better ways to have fun.

Well, so now you know.

No big deal, just business.

On a beach, not on a bitch.
