If from afar you see a patch of bright
yellow on your windshield, it may be a parking ticket from
a Moravian College campus safety officer. The fine: $20.
Because you are not at fault (naturally),
you may contest this erosion of your personal freedom to park
wherever you please by requesting an appeals form from Ext.
1421, or (soon) by downloading one.
A parking appeals committee of four impartial
souls meets every other week to consider your case and those
of others equally guiltless.
An easier way to deal with this is to pay
the $20 and stop whining about it. Protesting your parking
ticket by sending the empty envelope back through the campus
mail is considered bad form.
The editor of InCommon got a parking ticket
not long ago for, ahem, leaving her car on the grass behind
Peter Hall. (It was an emergency.) Eleven other cars followed
her lead, and all were ticketed. Her appeal is that she made
$220 in extra income for the College.
