You just finished a successful meeting in the Brickell
area and are walking out to your car when you see that
orange-and-white document sitting on your windshield
notifying you that you’ve been cited for a parking
violation. The sight of the ticket on your car makes you
pause for a second before considering your options. But
exactly what are your options? Since a parking ticket
is actually written to your vehicle, it doesn’t appear on
your driver’s license record. That being said, many people
just pay the fine. If you decide to pay the fine, remember
that you only have 30 days to do so without incurring a
substantial late fee. For those who feel that the ticket
was issued erroneously, a legal challenge can be mounted
against the ticket. To challenge the ticket, recipients of a
violation should notify the court of their intent to have
their day in court. Instructions on how to ask for a court
date are listed on the ticket. As an alternative, you can
also visit Miami-DadeClerk.com/Parking_Hearing for
information. The Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts entertains
the following defenses for parking violations: 1.) The
offense was not committed. 2.) The vehicle was taken
without my consent (stolen vehicle — submit theft and
recovery reports). 3.) I was not the owner of the vehicle
or the person having the care, custody or control of the
vehicle at the time of the offense (A sworn affidavit is
required giving the name, address and driver’s license
number of the other person so that they can be notified
of their liability and can offer a rebuttal).

Don’t drink from this one! The
Calder Fountain in Barcelona pours
out poisonous mercury instead of
water, which is probably why the
folks at the Fundació Joan Miró
keep it safely behind glass.
This bizarre monument in the otherwise
normal town of Headington in the UK
takes the form of a shark falling through
the roof of a suburban home. It was
commissioned to commemorate the
bombing of Nagasaki.
