Featured Story: This weekend, NBC 4 completed a three-part mini series entitled “But I’m Trying to Pay the Meter” on the trials of a woman ticketed at an electronic parking meter while attempting to pay at the kiosk.  LADOT points out that if you pay a ticket within 60 seconds of getting a ticket, the ticket is default.  NBC reporters claim they had trouble following the directions themselves when it comes to working the kiosk parking.  I have to admit I’ve only used the kiosk’s once, but I found it pretty easy.
