Get A Wake Up Call Before You Get A Parking Ticket In Los Angeles
You woke up late only to find a $60 parking ticket under your wiper because you failed to move your wheels for a street sweeper that has yet to come? A group of USC students has started a company that will text you reminders to move your car on sweeping days for $20 a year.
"Along with three of my USC friends, we have started a business to combat street sweeping tickets in Los Angeles, which is a huge and very annoying problem," says Peter Anderson.
"We were fed up with waking up to street sweeping tickets on our cars around the USC area, so we created a simple solution to try and stop it," he said.
Customers in the city of Los Angeles can site up at the Stop Parking Tickets Now! site and pay the $20 through Google Checkout.
The idea seems to follow the lead of a Santa Monica company, Ticket Angels, that will also warn subscribers of impending street-sweeping tickets there.
