Parking Meter Robin Hoods

Where are the modern day Robin Hoods? In a world of rich bankers and poor workers, where are the people standing up for the little guy and teaching the fat cats a lesson? Well, the Robin Hoods can be hard to find, but they ARE out there. Let us here at McCluskey, your source for Ford dealers in Cincinnati, tell you about one awesome example.

The New Hampshire city of Keene has their own personal Robin Hoods causing trouble. Apparently, the group watching parking meters and has spare change on the ready. When the meters are about to run out, they drop in the coins and save the people from getting a ticket. We here at your home for a cheap oil change love this sentiment, but apparently it’s causing trouble with the local law.

They are also slipping notes under the wipers of cars they save. The notes read:

“Your meter expired; however, we saved you from the king’s tariffs, Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Please consider paying it forward.”

Now the city is bringing a lawsuit against the Robin Hoods because they are making it difficult for the parking officers to do their job…“by closely following them on foot and in automobiles in groups of one, two or more, often with video camera equipment and coordinating their activities using radio communication.”

What do you think? Should paying other peoples’ meters be against the law?
