That's different, it's the city's job to put up clear signage for no-parking-zones. If it were the city's job to make sure you are aware of them they'd have to control your mind.prizrak;n3543142 said:Also your entire premise is flawed because you are comparing administrative and criminal offenses. I had a parking ticket dismissed before because of the sign not being clear enough (it was in a very strange location and didn't seem to have anything to do with where I parked). So I was ignorant of the fact that it was a no parking zone, and it was the city's job to make sure I was aware of it, they failed at their job and hence had to dismiss the fine.
In other words, it's the city's job to make sure you have a reasonable chance of being aware of the no-parking-zones. In your case they failed to do that - to transfer that to a more general case, they failed to sufficiently publish the rules. Can't follow rules that aren't published.
