My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Maryland.
Last summer I received a parking ticket for parking against the traffic -- in front of my house. My neighbors and I have all been parking that way off and on for the 10 years we have lived here-- I am not in a municipality and no one has ever received a ticket that I know of before. I have been all over this state, and only have seen that the rule applied in certain municipal areas (not all -- for example where my father lives in another county does not have that rule). That day and for the next two weeks thereafter, I watched the cars on my street and took pictures nearly every day of vehicles that all were parked like mine had been when I received the ticket -- and none of them received tickets. The only thing I can see is that of the three households on my block whose native language is English, and two of the three are the the only ones who have received a ticket for anything, and they have been quite petty items. Nearly 6 months later I received a summons to go to court. I see this as a unequal implementation of law, if there is such a law. Have not found a reference for it yet.
