I guess that's my best hope this time around too. If the police officer who ordered the car towed dosen't show up that means I win, right? I'm not sure exactly where I stand on this whole thing legally. I mean, I was blocking what could have theoreticly been a driveway. I've never seen any cars in it and it's all fenced off, but it does have a sloping curb in front. I just don't see how in the world they can fine me for parking in what was clearly marked as a handicapped parking spot. It's not like it was a private, reserved spot either from what I could see. In the end, I figure that if I win, it'll be because the judge exercised his or her discretion. I'm probably borked by the letter of the law, even if it makes no sense.
Hmmm, I just checked the notice, and it seems that I'll have to get to the courthouse by 8:45 am. My day will start even earlier than that since I still have to make a run to a Walgreens to get the pictures I took printed out. I have no clue if it'll make a difference but it'd be stupid to not have a picture or two documenting the sign and spot just in case.
Anyway, I'll let you all know how it ends up going tomorrow.
