And finally… twilight zone

A man is challenging a parking ticket that he was given after the kerb was repainted red while he was away from his car.

Desiree and Jeff Jolly said they have been parking in a space at the corner of Larkin and Union streets in San Francisco for the last 25 years. However, last week they discovered a $180 fine on their windshield, detailing that they had parked in a red zone.

The two claim that the red parking zone did not exist when they parked there a few days earlier, or in years past.

A spokesperson for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) confirmed that the ticket was for parking in a red zone; however, they said it was not for the newly painted red stripe. The violation was, instead, for parking on an old, faded one.

SFMTA provided a photo of the faded red zone parking spot to illustrate that the red zone did previously exist.
