Parking in the Port City can be a frustrating game of beat the clock, especially when you return to your car to find a bright yellow ticket on the windshield. One man is trying to change the way people park in downtown Wilmington, one expiring meter at a time. “They used to call me the Dime Fairy and the Meter Fairy. I never set out to call myself anything, but I’m no fairy so I had to make up a name and I started calling myself Anti-ticket Man,” Stanley Harts said. Check out the video as WWAY’s Joe Mauceri tags along with Anti-ticket Man, who inserts quarters into expiring meters to save parkers from getting ticketed; find out more about his route, how much he spends annually and more… Stanley says he's been told feeding other people's meters is illegal, but our calls to the Wilmington Police Department and the city of Wilmington revealed no laws or ordinances against paying for other people's parking.

A true act of unselfish kindness.
