WTF??? Man To Pay 1953 Parking Ticket, Guess There Is No Expiration On Parking Tickets..
A US man has told authorities he wants to clear his conscience – and pay a $1 parking ticket he received 58 years ago.
Dale Crawford, of Houston, Texas, sent a letter to city officials after finding the ticket among some keepsakes.
He says he wants to pay the debt, even though it is a “small, almost unnoticeable amount”.
Mr Crawford received the ticket on February 3 1953, the day he was inducted into the US Army.
He left his 1946 Nash at a parking meter at the induction station, but because his father was late retrieving the car, it had been ticketed.
Houston mayor Annise Parker says she will personally accept Mr Crawford’s payment tomorrow and thank him for setting an example for others who owe debts to the city.
