A little grace

The meter maids have been getting fairly vigilant these days in Chicago. For those of you here who are fearing their wrath, a little bit of comfort:
Enforcement personnel are trained to discern inoperable meters in the field, and do not issue tickets if they are visibly inoperable. Motorists may park at an inoperable meter as long as the malfunction is no fault of their own, and as long as they report the meter inoperable within 24 hours. Inoperable meters may be reported to 877.242.7901 or 312.744.PARK or 311. Motorists should contest any tickets they feel are issued in error including tickets issued when parked at inoperable meters.
