No vertical signage
4 boots and over $200 later, I finally catch University Parking on a technicality. It has been a long, grueling relationship we've had, UPE (University Parking Enforcement) and I. It reminds me of my last relationship: so bad that you don't want to end it because you're too shocked that you started it in the first place.
I wish I could say I had the answer to all our booting problems. But for now, just "pray about it."
The only answer I provide is for those who park in handicapped spaces in their own parking lot, where there is no vertical sign. I mean, no vertical signage.
First, let us all give a belittling "shout-out" to Provo City for coming up with the "sickest" word that... they've ever come up with: "signage."
So there is only one, to be politically correct, physically retarded person living at my apartment complex. It parks in the same spot everyday. This leaves two very precious parking spaces available which I decided to covet for about two days. Then I actually started parking in them.
After two beautiful weeks of non-comptetitive parking (because the other physically normal people were too afraid of the UPE), I was booted. Ironically, I caught the boot the morning I really needed to be on time to work.
So, I call the booter, accept the blame, booter comes, I pay, boot comes off, I get to work late.
You may be thinking: "well Brian, you deserved it." My response,"You suck and you're wrong."
Under Utah state traffic code 41-1a-414 (1) and (a), in order for a parking space to be considered "accessible parking space," there needs to be "vertical signage, including the international symbol of accessibility, that is visible from a passing vehicle." In other words, any physically normal person can park there without penalty.
My response after research: filed "official appeals form" available at http://www.universityparkingenforcement.com and disputed charge with Wells Fargo.
With that, UPE, I must say this is just not working out for either of us.
