It’s one of the worst feelings you can have. You go into a store, do your business, and come out of the store to find a ticket on your windshield. It’s enough to drive some people to commit vandalism, and no one is safe from meter maids, not even Batman. Well, a group of six people in Keene, New Hampshire, has declared war against parking fines, and now the city of Keene has declared war on them. The city of Keene is suing a group of people who have been feeding parking meters.
The notes read, “Your meter expired; however, we saved you from the king’s tariffs,” and encourage recipients to “pay it forward” to someone else.
Of course, it’s not as simple as people going around and feeding the meters. Keene accuses Robin Hood and his Merry Men (as the group is known) of doing more than good deeds, saying they have “intentionally taunted, interfered with, harassed and intimidated” the city’s three parking enforcement officers. For their part, Robin Hood and company say the city is suing them simply because the city is losing money thanks to their good deeds.
