So fucking what. I'm glad you got booted, you twat. You parked in an area you weren't supposed to, and ignored all signs warning you of what could happen if you did what you did. Is it really that hard to park in the correct area, or wait until a space becomes free? Or do you think you're above the law?
I love a show on a cable network which follows booters. It's quite funny. People go apeshit crazy when they get booted because they've neglected to pay their parking tickets or are parked illegally. Maybe those in Halifax who get tickets will take extra care in parking their cars knowing that the scary booter-man is watching your every move. When it says 'no stopping', it means just that. It doesn't give you a three minute grace period to run into the dry cleaner, or into the bank. Throwing your 4-ways on while you run into grab a sandwich also doesn't stop the boot being put on. If you stop in a no stopping zone because you're in labour and can't drive and you get booted, then you have a case. Otherwise, STFU and GTFO of your cars in the correct places.
I believe that the winter parking ban is a pain in the ass - but it's law. I don't like breaking laws, I'd rather not owe ticket money to the government/private companies. Maybe those who don't believe what I do will learn their lesson when the bright yellow metal is saying hello to them.
