Don’t you hate it when you get a ticket for parking in a spot you thought was legal? This happened to me once when I ran into get a Double-Double from IN-N-OUT near LAX and found an $88 ticket on my windshield (story). Ugh… Talk about an expensive burger! A couple of brainiacs from San Francisco just released an app that allows you to use your smart phone to prevent expensive parking tickets and tows. It’s currently available in San Francisco, Santa Monica, and downtown L.A., but they plan to cover New York City and Washington D.C. soon. Here’s a story about it.
