Ticketed motorists recently filed the following appeals to the New Canaan Parking Bureau:
“I was a volunteer for the rehearsal at Saxe Middle School while I got the ticket. I parked behind a fire zone and blocked a hydrant unfortunately. I’m an au pair and actually from Germany, so we don’t have hydrants in front of buildings or on streets, they are under the ground. I never learned something about hydrants in my German driving school and it wasn’t necessary to visit a driving school here in CT. I didn’t know about the rules and that isn’t allowed to park next to a hydrant.
