Ticketing in the Rain


Ticketing in the Rain

The Columbia, MO, enforcement folks are taking a bit of backwater concerning problems with writing parking tickets in the rain. Seems their automatic ticket writing equipment gets wet and doesn’t perform when the heavens open. Read all about it.

I am in agreement with folks who say that this is an operational problem, not an enforcement problem. I have travelled all over the world and seen citations in every type of weather, wet and dry, cold and hot. They are placed in little sealed baggies and put on the windshields and that is that.

If weather is inclement, the officers drive cars or put their printers under their raincoats. These folks need to learn something from the USPS – Neither rain nor snow…
