So I ride to school yesterday after being away (L.A) for a 4 day weekend and park where I always do, in the metered lot off of West mall (kinda behind Koerner's/yum-yum's/some kinda art building). Know the one I mean? I park in the designated motorcycle stall in which you don't need to pay.
I'm in a rush so I park and leave. Come back later to go home, and I've got a fucking ticket under my seat strap... um... ok why the hell do I have a ticket... then I see it. A sign... and it says "RESERVED 24 hours UBC Motorcycle Parking Permit Holders Only". Now WHERE THE FUCK DID THAT COME FROM??? I'm almost 100% certain it was never there before! Am I wrong?
Did those greedy fucks suddenly decide to charge for 5 square feet of parking space? What's next? SW Marine bike parking becoming reserved??
Since I didn't see the sign and it was never there before, do I have a case to fight this with? If not I won't pay anyways cause with the on and off insurance my plates switch once a year anyway.
Do you guys know of any other previously free bike spots that the parking whores have decided to mooch from?
P.S. don't feed me the old "$12 a month and you wouldn't have that problem" line. I know about the parking permit!
