Awhile back, I parked on Peter Street in downtown Toronto. As I'll show you in the video, the sign at the parking spot indicates that pay parking is enforced here from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Now, 8 a.m. I fully understand. But I do not understand this concept of “12 a.m.”
So, on the day I parked the Menzoid-Mobile on Peter Street, I figured the city wants money until 12 noon. I paid the meter up, and then I went about my merry business.
When I returned around 3-ish, there was a parking ticket flapping under the windshield wiper blade of my truck.
Now, I could’ve taken the easy way out and just pay the ticket. But this was a matter of principle, and I’m seldom keen to give up when I'm in the right.
So, I fought the ticket.
And I won.
WATCH and I'll tell you the story of how I used the fact that there's no such thing as 12 a.m. or 12 p.m., and how I've been following up with the city of Toronto which continues to use these nonsense terms to ticket me and you.
