This poor schmuck made the mistake of having his car die within the city limits of Boston proper. If you’ve ever lived in Boston you know that these meter maids are worse than Joe Pesci when you owe him a few bucks. Oh your car battery died? Fuck you pay me.
If you haven’t been ticketed and towed to an undisclosed lot, which you have to call every lot in the area to figure out where it is, and then walk there on foot to pay the bill then have you really lived in the city?
PS – I just noticed that his registration sticker expired in January so this may or may not be a criminal on the lamb.
