Are meter fairies illegal?
    #2846511 - 07/01/04 09:57 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I know this is probably technically supposed to go into the "LAW" forum but I thought it was a pub topic.  For those of you who dont know what a meter fairie is, they are people who go around to parking meters and put change into expired meters which is occupied by a vehicle so they dont get a ticket.  Pretty cool huh  :laugh:.  NOw I wouldnt usually think this would be illegal but I remember an episode of Jackass when Steve-O dressed up like a fairie and was skippin around puttin change everywhere when a jackass cop detaiend him stating it was illegal for him to do this.  Was the cop just BS'ing or is there actually a law that says you cant put change into expired meters?

I have heard this before (from a slightly more reputable source than Jackass), but I don't think it's a federal law. So it may vary depending on where you live. But yeah, it's probably illegal. They WANT to write tickets for expired meters, it's how they make money.

I dont believe they are either... look at the arguements in citing and prosecuting it

lawyer: and why again was the defendant arrested?

cop: I caught him putting money into a parking meter

Lawyer: do you arrest everyone for that 'crime'

cop: no, he was inserting coins into multiple meters

Lawyer: so giving the city money through the parking system is illegal?

cop: no, but he was doing it before I was able to write a ticket for the expiration

Lawyer: so paying at an expired meter before you ticket the car is illegal

cop: not really, but it prevented me from doing my job

Lawyer: as in it physical restraint?

cop: no. I was aproaching a car to ticket it and he paid the fee before I go there

Lawyer: and thats illegal?

cop: no, but he was feeding money into other meters as well

Lawyer: and that would be illegal

cop: not really, but it really pisses me off when I cant watch someone squirm it get out of a $15 dollar parking ticket

yeah a clown went around doing it in this town where I used to live, and he either got ticketed or arrested


--------------------
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter, bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."
