When Bob and Sandi Durell got a $100 fine from New York City for two parking tickets, they were puzzled. They don't own a car. They sold the one they did own in 2013. The tickets were written to a vehicle with their old license plate, but they'd turned it in when they sold the car, and it was supposed to have been destroyed. They sent the paperwork showing they'd sold their car in along with the receipt they got when they turned in their tag. The city cancelled one ticket but said they'd still have to pay the other. After a local TV station got involved, the city cancelled the second ticket, too.
So far, it's been silence from The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and others.
