Ticket Trap on Bryant Street (Mariposa and 18th) Small towns are famous for their speed traps. San Franicsco must want to be known for its ticket traps. You could claim this trap is set up to catch people with bad eye sight, as the camera can barely make out the "2 hour limit" message printed inside a badly scratched angled plastic cover. See the un-retouched image below. There is no street sign warning of a 2 hour limit. You must park and get out to read the meter, and, unless you read every bit of the difficult-to-see copy inside the badly scratched plastic cover, you have no way of knowing that there is a two hour limit on this meter.
If this meter meets MTA requirements for giving notice to drivers, then the laws regulating such notice need to change. (See another story that was just posted regarding a ticket trap with NO SIGNS posted on Potrero Hill.)
