To Park or not to Park

What is up with Elkton and these parking tickets. The tickets are $25 for exceeding two hour parking. If I went to a store or restaurant and came out to a ticket, I would think twice before going back to Elkton. All this talk about finding ways to bring people to the downtown area to help the businesses, then the town pursues a way to make sure people don't stay in Elkton more than 2 hours. I would be interested in knowing how much income the town makes on the tickets.

  1. You are missing the point. If you decide to fight the ticket, You have to come back to town. No one knows how long court will take, so you get another ticket, and so on and so on. This is a self perpetuating money maker.You sure won't want to grab a bite to eat during the lunch break in court, because you will get another ticket. Genius!
