  • If you feel you're right you should go to court. Take pictures with you. Because you're right, they'll continue to ticket you. It's not the money, it's the principle.

  • it's just ten dollars, but if we pay it, would they just keep giving us tickets?

  • IF you were in the 1st 5 or so feet of "your" driveway - you are actually on public property - its the municipal right of way for utilities etc - and they have the right to ticket you for parking that way.
