Downtown Ticket Angers Shopper

Tweeter McWriters writes to Huckleberries: After enjoying a great lunch with three of my children and their grandmother at Cafe Carambolo (Wednesday afternoon), we decided to head downtown to get cupcakes from Sweet B's Cupcakes (on 5th Street, just north of Sherman). As we drove down 5th Street, the street was closed off due to folks setting up for the Farmer's Market. So, in lieu of turning around and parking over a block away, we decided to pull in the parking lot right next to Sweet B's, run in and select our 6 cupcakes. We parked at right around 2:10pm. When we came back out to my truck (at 2:26pm - I looked at the clock intentionally after retrieving the violation from my windshield) a parking violation had been issued at 2:16pm in the amount of $20.00 due to “no advanced payment” from Diamond Parking Services. More from McWriters below.

Question: Should McWriters have received a parking ticket?
