Parking tickets – they have an interesting system here for parking around downtown. There are women walking around who sell parking cards for about $0.10. When you park, you put one of these cards under your windshield wiper. If the parking people check your car, they will mark your card. If they check your car again and if you have gone over the time on your card since they checked it first, then you get a ticket. If your card doesn’t get checked and marked, you can use it again next time. I asked, what if someone steals the card you left on your windshield? I was told that people just don’t do that! You don’t need to worry.
If you do get a ticket, you need to go to the municipal building to pay it. I got one and it cost me $1.
