City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks - Trumped Up Ticket at Temescal Canyon Park
I got a 100 dollar ticket for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign in the (Los Angeles) Temescal Gateway PARKING LOT, and they have a video to prove it. It's a sad state of affairs when the state and regional parks need to set up video cameras in the parking to make money.
Basically, I've heard the parks authority is contracting with a sketchy Australian company to photograph minor moving violations and issue citations. The Aussie company gets a nice cut of every fine and handles the administration. This is just WRONG on so many constitutional levels.
Yet another example of a misguided government trampling of civil liberties and basic commmon sense...
Monetary Loss: $100.
