Not too sure if this topic goes in the right area... BUT I was just wondering what you do when you have to park in metered parking zones. I've always just parked normally whether it is metered or not. Last weekend I was walking to the bike shop and noticed an 09 r1 on the street in front of a restaurant. Just admired it for a while and went about my business to the bike shop. When I was leaving the shop, I walked back past the r1 and it had a yellow envelope slipped below the windscreen, (which i can only assume was a parking fine). If you bought a parking ticket and left it on your bike, there would be a good chance that it would be gone by the time you got back. So what can be done about it? Park somewhere else?
