Curbside Outtake/QOTD: Does This Warrant a Parking Ticket?

We came across this scene on our current regular walk route. Hmm. Did this happen late the night before? Or early in the morning?

Poor tree. Being a street tree is not exactly life on easy street.

I see that it’s been ticketed. Assault and battery on a tree?

Naw. Just a parking ticket. I can’t make all of it out, but “Curb strip..$25” is part of it. And the total is $50. So maybe the assault and battery on the tree rated the other $25?


PS:  When we walked by two days later, it was still there. Four days later it was gone.
