I recently became acquainted with the wonderful world of the Somerville Parking and Traffic office.
I have lived in Somerville for about 6 or 7 years and have received the occasional ticket, but recently we had to challenge one of these tickets and that is when I realized what a crazy system they run.
The Ticket Officers seem to wield unchallenged power such that any ticket they write is just about impossible to challenge.
I have created a Google group in the hopes that we can all get together and share our stories, comment on other stories and HOPEFULLY work towards showing the city of Somerville that its citizens won't stand for a department that almost seems above the law.
The URL is:
I am excited to see if we can get a ground swell of support and show the mayor just how many people view this department with disdain.
