One of the worst feelings any driver has experienced is that walk back to their car and seeing a bright orange or yellow slip of paper on their windshield.
Which is probably why people come up with such creative ways to avoid being slapped with a ticket, like this one Twitter user who thinks she’s being slick parking her car illegally and slapping a “ticket” on it already in the hopes of not getting another one.
Now that might work if a meter-maid doesn’t check the details of the ticket, but there are tons of people on Twitter who aren’t sold on the idea of this trick helping them avoid paying a hefty fine.
This won’t work, I’ve gotten six tickets at once trying to pull this off

You’d come back to that fake ticket and 2 boots on your car in Atlanta ?

Others think the idea is a brilliant one.

And even offered their own variations on this genius ploy.
Some took it even further, though, and went and slapped a fake boot on their car.
Which is next level parking fine-avoidance.
Or you could just park legally, but who’s got time for that?
