Top Comment: Frustrated In CdA

Kerri Thoreson (RE: Evening ends in parking ticket): To clarify, I wasn't angry, just frustrated. If, like with airport parking, you could receive a time stamped ticket when you enter the lot and then pay for however long you were actually parked, that would be well-received. I welcome you to read the many comments under that post to see that there appears to be many others frustrated not with paying for parking but with understanding what the process is now. I've also already written the check for the fine and will mail it today. I love downtown Coeur d'Alene, always have since growing up on 9th and Sherman. But a $20 fine on a citation written up after 10 p.m. at night in a mostly empty parking lot seems excessive. Had a nice chat with Mayor Widmyer yesterday after he'd read the post and comments. I'm thinking he was already on top of the issue.

Question: When did you last get a parking ticket in Coeur d'Alene?
