INTERACTIVE MAP: Winnipeg's most-ticketed parking meters - Winnipeg Free Press
Don't follow leaders, watch the parking meters. OK, Bob.
The Winnipeg Free Press has an interactive map of the most-ticketed parking meters in the city in today's edition.
Number 16 on the list at 414 tickets is close to Red River College on the East side of Princess between Elgin and William.
I'm not familiar with a meter on this side of the college - isn't that the bus stop? I wonder if it isn't just cars that are parked or stopped illegally in the bus zone, or is the map just outright wrong? It certainly doesn't show up in this picture in the Uniter, taken by CreComm grad Mark Reimer.
On a related note, I've paid my fair share of tickets this year parking on Adelaide Street between William and Bannatyne; the main culprit has been those awesome "new meters," which don't allow you to plug them one second before 9 a.m. My classes start at 9 a.m. on the nose. So, my choice is to arrive late to teach or take my chances with getting a ticket.
How about a 15-minute window to "pre-plug" the meter before 9 a.m.? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
