Our country went to a "Red Alert" the highest it can be, and these guy’s are out in full force to make sure I have a seat belt on. I got a ticket for $37 and I will fight this to the end. I wish these bunch of "meter maids" will grow-up and try to justify their jobs in some other way. Maybe go catch a bamk robber or something? Just letting off some steam!
