parking_violation

While walking through the LES yesterday, I happened upon a woman who was calmly incensed over a parking ticket she was given and rightly so. As you can see, despite being payed up till 7:05PM, she was somehow slapped with a $60 ticket a little before 6:30PM for not displaying the Muni-meter receipt, an outrageous claim since it was sitting pretty on the dashboard of her Mercedes Benz. What could possibly explain the meter maid getting this so wrong? I have an extremely circumstantial theory, but will float it out there anyway: out of state plates.
