Parking tickets tend to bring out the worst in people.
A friend of mine from San Francisco kept a bumper sticker on her car that said “Meter maids eat their own.”
Sedgwick County officials reprogrammed the parking meters Tuesday around the courthouse to make them more consistent. Commissioners had fielded a few complaints from residents that some meters cost more than others.
The meters have a five-hour limit, and are a nickel for 15 minutes, a dime for 30 minutes and a quarter for 75 minutes.
