I got a parking ticket. Can they do that?

I have parked in the exact same spot with the exact same parking permit all semester. Thursday, last week, I had a ticket on my bike for altering my permit. I have never 'altered' it in any way- it's a FREE permit.

So, my question is: Am I liable for the ticket ($50 fine) because I painted my bike and the cop didn't check the tags or vin (same bike, douche)?

I filed an appeal today and am waiting to go before the committee.

you should not have to pay . Only thing you did was paint the bike. I would fight it, there is no law against painting a bike.

NO! The little old ladies don't care what I look like! It's free because I pay $75 for a parking permit for my truck. Next semester I'm not going to buy the truck permit, only the mc- then it's $12.

it's free for a reason. Just kidding, if you have a valid permit to park then it's just a hassle to get it dismissed or thrown out. Campus cops sucks.

That's what I'm afraid of happening. I hope they let this go... I keep wondering how in the world I altered the permit... The only thing I can imagine is that he thought the permit belonged on a different bike.

Boo. I don't want to be responsible for this fine. It's a lot of money for something I didn't do... I realize ppl probably get the free permit and give it away or share it - whatever, but my tags all match up.

And the 'RENT-A-COPs' at UH-Downtown are HPD, so no way am I kicking any of them.
