A neighbor walked by with his dog, "They gave you a parking ticket?" He said.
"Yeah," I replied, puzzled, "It says 'vehicle without Evanston parking permit', but I obviously have a current permit."
"Is it your license plate number? Maybe someone moved it over from another car as a prank."
"Nope...it's my number, but it's obviously a mistake...I can't figure out how they could have missed seeing my permit."
I figured out the problem a couple minutes later as I drove to school. When I got my new Illinois plates I didn't update that information with the Evanston parking authority.
I'm going to at least try and beg for mercy.
I have proof of the license plate transition. It's an honest mistake...right?
I hope they think so...sigh...
