True stories that will have you fearing the meter maid
In Toronto, there is a special fire hydrant -- a sneaky one, set back just enough from the curb so it can be missed, with the remarkable ability to sap thousands of dollars from the drivers that park in front of it. It sits on University Ave., downtown and near a major courthouse, and has been such a pain for Toronto motorists that it's reportedly caused nearly $300,000 in parking tickets since 2008.
Think that's bad? It sure is, but get a load of these stories. In honour of Toronto's $300K fire hydrant, MSN Autos looks at other parking ticket nightmares, including the time a woman was once on the hook to her city for more than six figures in back parking fines.
