Getting and Paying a Parking Ticket

I’m glad you asked about the yellow curbs.

I assumed they meant “no parking”, and that unpainted curbs meant parking was permitted. i.e., in the absence of a law prohibiting something (like parking), the behaviour is permitted.

Then I saw so many places with yellow curbs and people parking, that I thought it was the reverse. I had difficulty with that idea, and decoupled the belief that people just risked getting parking tickets.

Then I went back to my original assumption.

Now I’m wondering if the yellow paint just means, “Hey! Pay attention! There’s a curb here!” :)
