(funky upbeat music) Chrissie Ayber. Hi, Chrissie Hi, good morning, Your Honor. Chrissie, you’re charged with parking in a tow zone on Chad Brown Street.
Yes. What do you wanna tell me about this? So this is a residential area, it’s PC area. You go to PC? I do not, I go to CCRI, I’m in the nursing program there. Hm-mm. But that’s a family house, so my grandmother lives there and my Mom watches my baby, I just had a baby two months ago. What’s the baby’s name?
Yeah. That’s a nice name, you like that name? Yes.
Valentina, yeah, Is she named after anyone or you just made– No, I just liked the name.
You liked the name? Yeah, it’s a pretty name. I was hoping she was born on Valentine’s Day, but she wasn’t, she was born two days after. We like kids here, you should’ve brought her in. I know, my Mom was like, “Absolutely not, there’s germs in there.” Germs? Do you have any germs? Oh, Inspector Quinn.
(laughing) What are we talking about here? They’re pointing at each other here. I think he killed all his germs last night. I tell you, your Mom’s not far off. Well, the ticket’s $100, it now has tripled to 300. I mailed it in though and I called in. Yeah, what was the date on it? You mailed in how much, 100? No, I mailed in the appeal.
Oh, an appeal? Right, so I could come in to get a deal. Oh, I thought you mailed in the 300. But I never got it, so I called, Alright.
And they were like, “You can just come in, it’s fine.” So this is your appeal now? Right, so brace yourself. You’ve got to make your argument before the court. Okay.
Okay, I’m ready, I’m listening. So it’s a residential area, there’s no tow zone, it’s basically never been a tow zone, so for whatever reason, I think it was maybe St. Patrick’s Weekend or the weekend after, they decided to put Temporary Tow Zone on the poles on each corner of that street. Well, to some people, some people, St Patrick’s Day is very important, I’m gonna call the expert on St Patrick’s Day. Okay. (laughing) I don’t know why Inspector Kerrigan left, ’cause he’s also an expert in this, Inspector Quinn, how long do we have to celebrate St Patrick’s Day? Year round, judge. It’s 365 days, that holiday. Alright, so it’s fair to say there should be no parking on the street anytime that year, if St Patrick’s Day– We’re capable of throwing up a parade at any moment, judge, any moment. These are paper signs,
Paper signs. right, that they place on trees and on houses and if you’re standing on the street corner and you’re there walking up, they’ll staple one to you. Yeah.
Right, and it says– It’s easy to miss, especially when you go there all the time and you don’t know, like this is just a residential address, so it’s not–
and it says Emergency Parking, that’s what it says. Right, and I think it’s ’cause you know, they get pretty crazy over there, but I wasn’t trying to get crazy for St Patrick’s Day.
That time. Even though it’s a year round holiday. Alright, I think the money is better spent on Valentina, than on paying this parking ticket. I agree.
So we’re gonna dismiss it, good luck to you.
