To the City of Ottawa:
I drive down to Knox Presbyterian Church once a month to volunteer at a supper for the homeless. I park on Lisgar Street, at the end of the street just before it becomes a cul-de-sac at Lisgar Collegiate Institute.
When I arrived at 5:30pm tonight, it was dark.
I saw the white lines indicating parking spots on the road, and I slid my car into one of them.
I’ve been parking there for years. Why would I check to see if the green circle parking sign has suddenly changed?
I come back two and a half hours later to find a 50 dollar ticket on my windshield.
Since I last came down there, a little red no-parking sign has sprung up – with no change to the white lines on the road.
How about a warning next time you make a change like this, instead of a ticket?
