I recently came downtown to meet friends at Phun on Princess St. I parked my car at approximately 6:25 PM. No, I didn't feed the meter, wrongfully assuming that it was so close to 6:30 (when paid metered parking isn't required), I wouldn't need to.
After dinner, I returned to my car and found a ticket on my windshield. The time of the ticket was 6:28 PM. I thought they at least gave you a 5 minute grace period.
Lesson learned- Will not venture downtown to eat again, although I love Phun and Manna, and will tell all my out-of-town visitors to avoid it.
